Arts & media

A focus for the future.

Our students have gone on to work for STV and Sky, and on Game of Thrones and Lego. That's because our academics have the insight and skill, as well as the industry connections, to show them the way to their new career.

A Modern English Degree

Our journey towards our top rated English Degree started 10 years ago.
