Applicants must normally have gained an upper second class Honours degree or better in English Literature or a related discipline, but applicants with a lower second class degree may also be considered. Applicants may alternatively hold an equivalent standard (normally 50 percent) in a Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma or an approved alternative qualification. They must provide evidence of competence in written and spoken English (GCSE grade C or equivalent). In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant experiential learning, a portfolio of written evidence demonstrating the meeting of graduate qualities (including subject-specific outcomes, as determined by the Course Committee) may be considered as an alternative entrance route. Evidence used to demonstrate graduate qualities may not be used for exemption against modules within the programme. All applicants will be interviewed.
Coursework essays (with some of the assignments designed to test students' ability to deal with text-specific analytical questions, and others focusing on more general synoptic, thematic, or literary-historical issues) and oral presentation assessment, as well as either extended essays or creative writing portfolios and accompanying reflective work. At dissertation/creative project stage, the achievement by students of the learning outcomes is measured by the dissertation/creative writing portfolio.
