But what exactly does it mean to study English? Studying English means taking courses in language practice, literature and cultural studies, as well as linguistics. Students pursuing a degree in education also need to complete courses in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). You have never heard of linguistics before, want to find out what questions and phenomena are investigated in literature and cultural studies and want to know what we focus on in our language practice courses? Then come and visit us at our ‘tea and biscuits’ get-together, join our open lectures and seminars throughout the day, and bring any questions you might have.
If you want to gather some more intel in advance, here are some videos explaining the content and nature of the three main areas:
