Postgraduate

Study and research within our dynamic English Department here at King’s, one of the largest and oldest English departments in the UK.

Master's students can choose courses and modules from a selection which covers more than a thousand years of literary history from medieval to contemporary times.

Our courses are taught by staff who are rich in professional experience, including distinguished poets, novelists and theatrical practitioners with expertise covering an amazing range of topics and authors.  

The King's Department of English was ranked 8th in the UK for the quality and quantity of its research in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, and our PhD students cover topics ranging from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day.

All English Department doctoral researchers therefore have the opportunity to work on a distinctive research project of their own.
