The English language is the most widely spoken language in the world. Our degree programmes aim to develop students' understanding of the ways in which English operates on a global level.
Being located in China and drawing from the strengths of the School of English in the UK, the School is uniquely positioned to offer a range of distinctive English studies degrees, as well as PhD supervision in key areas.
Our degrees attract both Chinese and international students who want to develop advanced communication and China-related expertise. Our graduates develop sophisticated communications skills, essential to their further studies and employment.
