English (Including Foundation Year)

The BA (Hons) English is also available as a four year course including an integrated foundation year, and is designed for students who do not currently meet admissions criteria for direct entry onto the degree. You will start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge before continuing onto the three year degree programme. Combine your love of English language and literature, and develop a range of professional skills with this highly flexible course. Bringing together the study of literature from the Renaissance to the present day with the study of language in social and cultural contexts, you’ll gain specialist skills in analysis, close reading and writing. Your studies will also develop transferable skills that can be adapted in many ways, ensuring you’ll be prepared to succeed in many careers that need good, thoughtful communicators. This BA (Hons) English degree also offers the option to study TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) modules, where you can learn special skills in teaching English, a eld where many English graduates gain employment. There is a lively culture of writing at the University of South Wales: your lecturers are writers in various forms, and we have many visiting poets, bloggers and novelists. The anthology of student writing, DAPS, is produced entirely by students.
