Para estudiantes internacionales

You should normally hold an upper second-class honours degree, or its equivalent, in English Literature or a related subject. You also need to provide a writing sample; it should showcase your writing at its best. For many the sample would consist of an advanced-level undergraduate essay that features: Close engagement with primary sources (literary texts and/or other evidence); Critical engagement with secondary sources (scholarly criticism, and/or theory, where appropriate); a formal scholarly apparatus (notes, bibliography, works cited, etc). If the above is not an option for you, then we're happy for you to submit one of these alternatives: A piece of professional writing that engages with academic study or other research; a review of a literary work you have read recently, which makes use of current literary criticism/academic sources about the writer(s). The sample should be 1500-2500 words, but if you use a longer piece - highlight the 2500 words you want us to focus on. English language requirements: If English is not your first language you will need to provide certification of your English language proficiency. For this course you will need an IELTS score of at least 7, with at least 6.0 in each element.

Puede haber diferentes requisitos de IELTS en función del curso elegido.
