Our first-year core modules are designed as an introduction. We will build everyone's knowledge to the same level, so you can progress through to year two.
You take 120 credits of modules split as below:
- Core modules (100 credits) – you will take five core modules. Four of these cover the areas of English language, prose, poetry and drama, from the medieval period to the present day. The fifth core module, 'Academic Community', allows you to explore key issues in English and develop important study skills
- Optional module (20 credits) – choose one optional module from a range
You’ll have at least 13 hours of timetabled contact a week through lectures, seminars and tutorials.
You must pass year one, but it does not count towards your final degree classification.
