Highly regarded by top universities (Facilitating Subject). Similar career paths to English Language. Good A-Levels to combine it with are English Language, Media, History and Psychology (although any subjects work well with Literature!). If you wish to study for a degree in English, this course is essential.
It is hoped that the A-level Literature course will develop an enjoyment and appreciation of English Literature both in and beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to read widely, focusing on genres and literary styles drawn from the literary canon. Independent research, reading and evaluation is crucial and lively debate is encouraged as our students discuss their own and others' interpretations of the texts.
