We believe that Oxford offers you the best English course in the country, along with outstanding tuition, library, and IT facilities.
At Oxford you have the benefit of being taught both in your college and in the Faculty of English. The Oxford English Faculty is the largest department of English in the country, and contains some of the leading critics and writers in the subject. At Oxford, you will be given one-on-one tuition by active academic researchers, which brings advantages for both students and tutors.
Because Oxford tutors are also researchers, the University provides world-class Library and IT facilities. Students reading English have access to one of Britain's major libraries, the renowned Bodleian Library, and can borrow books from the English Faculty Library and their college libraries.
We believe that Oxford's combination of direction, choice, and personal attention gives it unique appeal. At the end of three years we hope you will have a wide but also deep knowledge of English literature and language, and that you will have specialised in the areas of this that you particularly enjoy.
