Fancy yourself as the next J K Rowling or E L James? Develop the skills and techniques to produce short stories, poetry and play scripts as you learn to analyse writing across a range of genres. Our English language modules will help you delve beneath the surface of language to explore the connections between sound and meaning and how English has developed over time. Learn how to analyse writing and speech in different ways and how to harness your own creativity in producing a variety of literary texts with expert support from our tutors.
You will have a chance to gain valuable work experience relating to your studies for example our work-related live project which could include planning for a conference, literature festival, writing competition, reading project or setting up an exhibition and so on. Through the Worldwise Centre, based in the school, you will get the opportunity to gain further practical experience through five day placements and short-term internships, as well as access latest language learning and digital technologies including Rosetta Stone.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
