This is a four-year degree at Goldsmiths. If you successfully achieve the progression requirements of the foundation year, you can continue with the full-time three-year BA (Hons) English. There are no formal entrance requirements, you just need to demonstrate a keen interest in the subject. You'll attend a study skills module as part of the programme, to develop your academic writing and research skills. You'll develop an undestanding of literary history and criticism, and the confidence and skills necessary to progress to the BA English degree. Our staff come from a variety of cultural backgrounds and, with their diverse research specialities, they’ll be able to help you develop your own interests. The Department is large enough to provide a wide range of modules, but small enough to let you get to know other students and staff.
