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 a top 15 English department in the Guardian University Guide 2014-17, 10th for research intensity in the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise, and achieving 95% student satisfaction in the most recent National Student Survey, the School of English at Kent offers an exciting and welcoming environment for study. You will be taught by leading international researchers and award-winning creative writers in a location steeped in literary history. Our programmes – English and American Literature, Creative Writing, Contemporary Literature and Postcolonial Literature – cover all periods from Chaucer to the Contemporary and at every step of the way students choose their own pathway through the subject. All our undergraduate degrees are available with a year abroad or a year in industry and our postgraduate programmes are taught at centres in Paris and London as well as in Canterbury. We are committed to research-led teaching and an international understanding of literature and through these dynamic approaches we ensure that our students are ready for the challenges of work and further study.
