Course Outline

To study English Literature in Cambridge means following in the footsteps of Coleridge, Wordsworth, Tennyson and Plath. Having inspired generations of authors and poets, Cambridge forms the perfect setting to be introduced to the study of literature at university level. The Reach Cambridge English Literature course is designed to introduce students to subjects beyond the scope of their current school courses and thereby offer them a flavour of English literature in higher education. Students will study drama, poetry, and prose, and explore different literary movements such as the Renaissance, the Romantic period, and our Postmodern age. The course will also involve enriching trips to the theatre, local excursions, practical workshops and creative writing sessions. Alongside fascinating examinations of different forms of literature, the course helps students to develop important skills, teaching them how to construct persuasive arguments, deliver stimulating presentations, and think philosophically. The course will not only equip students with key transferable skills that will enhance their achievements on their current school course, but will also introduce them to new areas of literature and furnish them with knowledge and experience of the demands of undergraduate academic study. In short, the course will develop both their passion and aptitude in the exciting field of literary studies.

Want to study more than one course? Choose two subject courses to study if you apply for a 4-week Summer program.

Upon application, select your desired program length and you will be prompted to choose a second course subject when completing your application form.

Testimonials

Coming to Reach has been one of the highlights of my life. The blend of excursions, learning, and meeting new people is a really great idea brought to life.

Kelvin, Computer Science & Maths, 2017

I expanded my technical knowledge, but I also gained a better understanding of what Computer Science at university actually involves… Due to the small class size, we could all get a lot of one-on-one help which allowed us to progress with programming quite quickly.
