From Shakespeare, contemporary literature and literary theory to Derrida, Freud and creative and critical writing – we welcome PhD applications in a wide range of areas.

Over 90% of all English faculty research was rated world-leading in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014 REF). As a doctoral student, you’ll be supervised by academics who lead in their fields of study.
