About this course

This course is for students who enjoy reading literature and are willing to tackle challenging texts. English Literature at A Level will introduce students to a range of texts by several different authors from different periods. Some of the texts studied will be 'traditional', e.g. Shakespeare, Dickens, and some will have been written in the last ten years. The skills learnt through this programme are much in demand from employers and universities, and are also valuable in their own right. Students with an A Level in English Literature have a wide range of possible careers and higher educational opportunities.
