Study with us

There are opportunities to study Lawrence's work at all levels within the School of English. We also welcome queries about postdoctoral study and regularly welcome visiting scholars from around the world.

An important part of the business and duty of a university is the patient exploration and interpretation of great art. When a great artist has special connections with a university and the locality where it is situated, that university has a special responsibility.
Professor Vivian de Sola Pinto, 1951
