Need to have a belief about the value of the sort of education provided by the school to which you are applying.

Need to be able to cope with ambivalence - being leader in the school is not a black and white thing.

Need to believe in people, whether it is staff or students.

Summary... header image

The English courses are designed so that the first two years consist almost entirely of compulsory modules, taught mainly through a combination of lectures and tutorials. Students take a variety of modules, based on period, genre, theme and nationality. After the first two years, students are free to construct their own course in the advanced work that will lead to their degree.
Students in the School of English may apply to study abroad on the Erasmus programme during their third year.
