Course content

King’s is one of the oldest English departments in the country and is home to a lively and supportive group of academics and students engaged in the exploration of literary cultures from the 7th to the 21st centuries. Our PhD students are at the very centre of our research culture and we welcome applications from prospective doctoral students working on any aspect of literary and cultural studies from the medieval to the contemporary, as well as to our unique, practice-led and recently launched PhD in creative writing. Our research is fuelled by our proximity to many of London’s artistic and cultural institutions and staff and students in the Department work in collaboration with our many cultural partners. PhD students in English at King’s have access not only to expert and attentive supervision, but also a full programme of training in addition to the opportunity to teach.
