Welcome to English at Oxford
The Faculty of English Language and Literature is by far the largest English Department in the UK, with over 75 permanent postholders, a further 70 Faculty members, 900 undergraduates and 300 postgraduates. The Faculty has a very distinguished research and teaching record, covering all periods of English Literature.
The Faculty is delighted to announce that we have been able to extend booking for our Spring School on the poets of World War One to 1 April 2014. Booking for the banquet at Wadham College will however close on 26 March 2014. This event will bring together some of the leading scholars in the field from across the UK to present lectures on the major poets. We will also be joined by Margi Blunden, daughter of Edmund Blunden, who will talk about her father the war poet and novelist.
The University of Oxford has been ranked first in the QS World University Rankings by subject for English Language & Literature. Oxford is also ranked top for Modern Languages.
"Coming top of the esteemed QS table is extremely gratifying and a testimony to the very high regard in which the English School at Oxford is regarded across the world. We think there is no better place to study the subject anywhere." - Dr Seamus Perry, Chairman of the Board of the Faculty of English Language and Literature, University of Oxford.
