The English Route is designed to represent literature from as wide a range of periods, cultural contexts and global varieties as possible, providing a stimulating, engaging and diverse experience of literature to include a comparable balance of poetry, prose and drama.  We have developed a very strong philosophy of encouraging enthusiasm for literature and supporting students with a wide range of abilities, needs and interests. We also encourage interdisciplinary links and progression to further studies in English and professional training after graduation.


At the heart of an Applied Sociology programme of study is the concept of students gaining hands-on experience of actually 'doing' sociology. Consequently, while there is a mandatory module exploring qualitative methodology, key aspects of both qualitative and quantitative methodology are explored in every sociology module. In every substantive areas of sociology a student studies they will have an opportunity to carry out a practical sociological enquiry and will learn about the processes of doing sociology by actually doing it.
