University of Sunderland
We usually require applicants to hold at least a 2nd class Honours degree (usually a 2.1) or equivalent. Applicants whose 1st language is not English must achieve a minimum IELTS band score of 6.5, with 6.5 in listening, and no less than 5.5 in reading, speaking and writing. After 6 April 2015 you must take your IELTS exams at 1 of the test centres listed on the UKVI website. If you took your IELTS exam before 6 April 2015 this does not apply, and your qualification is still valid regardless of which test centre you used. The University of Sunderland runs English for Academic Purposes University Preparation (EAP) courses, which are tailored to students who don't speak English as their 1st language and need to reach an IELTS 6.5. as part of the entry requirements.
Introductory module: Approaching literature. This allows attendees to study applied literary, critical and linguistic theory as a basis to their whole degree. Optional modules: Gothic; late Victorian Gothic; writing the Borders; language and ideology in children's fictions; early humans in fiction; Irish literature 1790 to 1831; critical theory and creative writing. The topic of the Masters dissertation can be negotiated to reflect personal interests.
Assessment methods include mainly essays. Some options require oral presentations.
