School of English

The Research Excellence Framework 2014 has produced very strong results for the School of English at Kent. With 74% of our work graded as world-leading or internationally excellent, and having submitted 97% of our staff, the School is ranked 10th out of 89 English Departments in terms of Research Intensity (THES).

Ranked 13th in the Guardian University Guide 2015, 94% student satisfaction in the most recent National Student Survey, internationally recognised research, award-winning creative writers and excellent graduate prospects. The School of English at the University of Kent offers a welcoming and stimulating environment for study. Surrounded by centuries of literary history, and taught by literary experts in areas from the medieval to the postmodern, Kent offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes including English and American Literature, Postcolonial Literature and Creative Writing. Much of the research within the school is organised around our six Research Centres (and other interdisciplinary centres across the university) which represent the broad mix of specialisms and strengths. Find out more about why you should study English at Kent.
