Nottingham Trent University
English Literary Research
Students learn more about approaches to the study of literature, and will have the opportunity to study authors, literary movements, themes or critical ideas in depth. Central to the course is the dissertation; it allows students to explore, in detail, their area of literary interest. An individual supervisor supports each student throughout their dissertation; there are 1-to-1 tutorials and the supervisor offers advice on developing appropriate study methods and provide feedback on drafts of the dissertation.
A good Honours degree (minimum 2.2) in English or a related subject; applications from candidates with non-standard entry qualifications are considered on an individual basis; applicants are required to submit a 400-word outline of their proposed topic at the time of application and are encouraged to contact the programme leader beforehand for advice. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component or equivalent.
Core modules: theoretical approaches; the symposia; departmental research seminars; dissertation.
Students will write an essay of 4,000 words examining an aspect of 1 or more of the theories examined in the core course. The 2nd assessment is a 4,000-word study proposal, outlining the student's dissertation plans. The 20,000-word dissertation is the main focus of study and as such it accounts for 2/3 of the overall marks for the MRes.
