Literature for life

Literature for life: An outreach blog by the Faculty of English Language and Literature 


Hello everyone!

Rebecca Costello

My name is Rebecca, and I am the Outreach Officer at the Faculty of English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford. It is my job to give school and college students accurate information about studying English at Oxford so that each and every individual who is capable of applying considers doing so.


Please do follow this blog to hear from current English students and learn more about studying at Oxford! If you have any questions, get in touch with me by emailing

To give you a taste of a typical day of a student studying English at Oxford, check out this great Snapchat takeover by Laura at Lady Margaret Hall (just one of Oxford’s many colleges)
