Why study English Language? 

Do you enjoy being at the cutting edge of a subject? Do you ever wonder why it is that accent and dialogue really do matter? Do you have a flair for creative writing? If so, then English Language is the course for you.

English Language is a vital part of our individual lives, the behaviour of social groups and the structure of our whole society. We are continually talking and texting, listening to friends and employers, reading websites, telling stories and giving advice - this is what makes the study of English Language so topical and so relevant. 

What can I do with English Language after A-Level?

A variety of occupations will be open to you, including publishing, journalism, media, law and teaching. In addition, the great variety of skills acquired are highly regarded by both employers and universities and are also valuable in their own right. Apart from supporting other subject areas, English Language offers an ideal preparation for a university degree in English or a related subject. 

English Language Extras

You will have the opportunity to listen to a range of presentations from professionals in the field of publishing and journalism. Students will also have the chance to visit local news providers and see journalism at work. We will also make use of relevant exhibitions and opportunities as they arise.
