BA in English Literature and Community Engagement at University of Bristol: 2013/14 Enrolment

Written by Lisa Spurgin, 17th July 2013

B.Uni Undergrad Prospectus Day 3The University of Bristol’s Department of English is now recruiting students on their  BA (Hons) degree in English Literature and Community Engagement for 2013/14. This part-time undergraduate course, taught one evening a week, allows students the chance to learn more about the diverse uses of reading in life as well as to share what they are learning directly within the wider community.

The degree is unique; the first in the country to combine the study of a full range of literature with community projects. Students, from a diverse set of age groups, will be given the opportunity to develop a reading project within their local community, in settings which currently include libraries, pubs and community centres. The focus of the course is on utilising reading in a wide variety of places.

As part of Adult Learners Week, Damien Moran, who has completed his third year of the degree, was awarded an Adult Learners Individual Regional Award for South West.

Fees are £2,550 per year of the course, an equivalent of £5,100 per full-time year, and are eligible to be waivered. Deadline for applications is Wednesday 7th August 2013.

For more information, visit the University of Bristol website or e-mail Tom Sperlinger:


Applications are still open for the part-time Reading in Practice MA run by the Centre for Research into Reading, Information and Linguistic Systems (CRILS) at the University of Liverpool. Exploring the role of literature in health and people's emotional and imaginative lives, it is the first Masters degree of its kind to be concerned with the deeper ways serious literature 'finds' people, offering living models and visions of human troubles and human possibilities.

Enrolment commences September 2013: for more information see  the CRILS page of the University of Liverpool website and the Courses section of our website.
