Entry Requirements

  • Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in English literature and/or English language, or exceptionally a related subject. 
  • For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.75 (with at least 3.85 in the major) out of 4.0.
  • Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.


Literature, contexts and approaches
This is the core course for the MSt. The general classes on Literature, Contexts and Approaches introduce representative key texts and current debates on the literature and cultural history of the period. This course is designed to provide a solid foundation for advanced literary study, and is not formally assessed.

Bibliography, theories of text, history of the book, manuscript studies
This is a range of lectures and seminars in each of the first two terms designed to train you for research in English, through the study of bibliography, palaeography, book history and theories of text (appropriate to the relevant period).

Special options
The special option courses present an excellent opportunity for you to develop and pursue your research interests. You are not constrained to follow option courses within the designated period, and indeed, option courses often traverse the boundaries of the broad periods. The courses are taught in weekly, small group seminars.

You will normally take one special option in each of the first two terms, but will take four if you decide to opt out of the B course.

You will write a 10,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, but related to the work you have been doing over the year. You will be assigned to a member of academic staff who will act as your supervisor.
