What's it like to study English at Warwick?
Hear from our students...
We launched our Transformations Summer School in July 2013 – a free, two-day non-residential drama and storytelling event developed by the department's Widening Participation Team. The summer school supports current year 9 and 10 school pupils who are considering a future in Higher Education and who have a keen interest in English literature, theatre studies and the creative arts.
Our Open Days for those holding offers to study the English Literature degree at Warwick are scheduled for February 10, 2016; February 24, 2016; and March 9, 2016. Please see the details on the Open Day website and we will advise when registration will open.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
