    This variant of the English & American Literature degree allows students to explore, in addition to topics from those traditions, the literature resulting from the colonial encounters between England and such diverse areas as Africa, India, Australia, the Caribbean and Ireland.

    By studying History and English, you gain a truly global perspective on each subject.

    Our English programmes cover traditional areas (such as Shakespeare or Dickens) and also allow you to examine American literature, for a broader perspective on English-language literature. You are also given the opportunity to explore creative writing and recent developments in literary theory.

    Within History you examine a wide range of sources and study varied historical opinion on subjects spanning different periods and regions – with areas of expertise including English and American History.

    Both subjects follow a modular structure allowing students to tailor their studies to their own interests.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
