Welcome to the School of English

University 3 

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.

This website provides further information on:

  • The academic background of the School
  • Our teaching and research areas
  • Staff members' academic profiles
  • Further study and career opportunities

It also contains information on both our Centre for Research in Applied Linguistics| and the English Students Society, which brings together our BA, MA and PhD students and staff in a supportive environment.
