Our students love their course. They tell us that our teaching inspires them and that we support active, individual learning (97% on this year’s National Student Survey).
We offer a wealth of chances for students to develop interests beyond the classroom. This year, we’ve enjoyed field trips to see the internationally-acclaimed William Blake exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and to Lacock Abbey, as well as a guided tour of Pre-Raphaelite paintings at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. As drama lovers, we go to the theatre as often as possible (last year we saw Webster’s The White Devil at the RSC in Stratford-upon Avon) and work closely with Cheltenham’s celebrated Everyman Theatre. Cheltenham is home to the international Literature Festival and our English Literature and Creative Writing courses take centre stage, with hundreds of free tickets for students, plus workshops, talks and activities, and matchless volunteering and working opportunities. We also have close ties to the celebrated Wychwood Festival.
Our students are at the heart of what we do. The student – run English Literature Society arranges trips, social events, and talks. Scroll down the blog archive to read reviews and articles contributed by our undergraduate writers, and take a look at our Flickr gallery.
We’re looking forward to seeing you. Don’t forget to book your place: Open Days at UGlos.
