Open Day on Saturday 21 November: come and meet us

If you’re thinking of studying English Literature at the University of Gloucestershire, come and meet us on Saturday 21 November at the Francis Close Hall campus.  It’s a great chance to find out more about the English Literature BA Hons course, the School of Humanities, the staff and student life, and why we love living and working at the heart of Cheltenham.  You can opt for a degree in English Literature alone, or combine your study of literature with Creative Writing, History, or English Language Language. Take a tour around our campus and Library, talk to Student Ambassadors, and get a sense of our academic community. Teams from Student Finance and Accommodation will be there to answer your questions.

We wish we could guarantee sunshine, but we can guarantee a very warm welcome. You’ll meet with lecturers and current students who can tell you all about the courses and campus life. You may even meet the campus cat (depending on how much food is around).

You can book your place here. More useful links:

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.
