The School of English at the University of Leicester is among the best English departments in the country. Our undergraduates follow a challenging programme of modules covering literature and language from before the Norman Conquest to the present day. Our postgraduates study Modern Literature, Creative Writing, Victorian Studies, English Studies and English Language & Linguistics, or work on their own PhD projects. But what do the staff do with their time?
