We’re a multicultural university welcoming students from different ethnic, linguistic and religious backgrounds attracting students and staff from over 160 countries. We provide our students with first-class learning and teaching facilities and have recently invested £350m across our campuses, creating inspiring environments to live and learn in. 

Postgraduate study

Our courses are informed by the latest research and industry input, providing a real-life dimension to learning.  Teaching is a collaboration of academics, professionals and visiting industry partners, all of whom enrich the course content. Our links with local and national TV stations, museums, galleries, local schools, voluntary organisations, and literary and language events all open the classroom up to the cultural life of the city and beyond, bringing contexts, flavours and worldwide perspectives to learning. Students have the opportunity to broaden their minds and gain transferable skills, through fieldtrips, volunteering and placements. Our courses equip you with the experience and knowledge necessary to stand out from the crowd. They enable you to succeed in today’s competitive employment market, and also allows you to study in depth the subject you love. We offer a number of scholarships and bursaries to help fund studies.


Underpinning all of our courses is our internationally renowned academic staff, who actively foster a vibrant community of advanced learning. The Research Excellence Framework 2014 results demonstrate the high quality and international standing of research conducted within the School.  Our subjects with a research impact measured as world-leading or internationally excellent include English Language and Literature (87% of the research); Modern Languages and Linguistics (80%); History (70%); and Communication, Cultural and Media Studies, Library and Information Management (70%). We offer opportunities for postgraduate study leading to MPhil and PhD, by both full-time and part-time study, across a wide range of disciplines.
