The MPhil in English Studies



Applicants for this course must normally have a good 2.1 Honours Degree, or equivalent. If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

Applicants should note, however, that the majority of those accepted onto English Faculty MPhils have a first-class honours degree or equivalent. Applicants will normally be expected to have taken a substantial number of English courses at a university level.

Open Days

The Postgraduate Virtual Open Day usually takes place at the beginning of November. It is a great opportunity to ask questions to admissions staff and academics, explore the Colleges virtually, and to find out more about courses, the application process and funding opportunities. Bookings for the Postgraduate Virtual Open Day will open in September. Visit the Postgraduate Open Day page for more details.
