Our School

Our School is a lively and diverse community of more than 45 academic staff, over 700 undergraduates, and 200 postgraduates located at the heart of one of the great cities in the UK.

The Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts is based in the School and its programme of visiting speakers (including Carol Ann Duffy, and Seamus Heaney) nourishes our creativity and love of language and ideas. The multi-School Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences (CRiLLS) makes Newcastle one of the largest concentrations of linguists in the world.

Our Work

70% of our research in English Language and Literature was rated as either "world-leading" (4*) or "internationally excellent" (3*). We are currently ranked joint 5th out of 87 English departments in the UK. We are committed to offering research-led teaching in a wide range of undergraduate, taught postgraduate, and research degrees in Literature (including Children's Literature), Film, English Language and Linguistics, and Creative Writing.
