It's hard to imagine a world without English. The English language is essential in every sector and every corner of the world.
We use English for so much, from international communication through to trade, literature and art.
But why study English? Well for starters if you excel in language you can express yourself and your ideas with confidence. You'll improve your analytical skills and understand how the English language works in communication.
From reading the works of literary greats like Shakespeare, Tennyson or Bronte, you'll learn about culture, history and how writers use language to convey meaning and metaphor. You will undertake guided reading, following set texts as well as the opportunity for extended reading in your own time.
Courses by Level
To really immerse you in the subject we'll take you on theatre visits, study days and visits to places of literary interest.
When it comes to your career, good analytical and communication skills are sought after by employers in most sectors. You could put your English skills to work in areas like marketing, public relations or journalism.
