Our outreach

Take part in our half-day and day-long Taster Sessions for A-level and AS-level students in English Literature and in English Language and Linguistics.

Join us for our taster sessions on Shakespeare, sociolinguistics and more.

Each academic year, we offer a range of half-day and day-long Taster Sessions for secondary school students in:

  • English Literature
  • English Language and Linguistics

We also include:

  • Campus tours
  • Talks about student life.

2024's sessions are now completely booked out. Join our mailing list to get regular updates on future sessions.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you all in January. If you have missed out on these sessions we have two Discovery Days that introduce students to the study of English Literature and of English language at university level.

Discover English Literature: Mon 13th May 2024 (G.05, Percy Building)

Discover English Language: Wed 15th May 2024  (G.05, Percy Building)
