All universities want to see A level Literature on your application form! In particular, it will help you with degrees in Law, Journalism, Media, Language and, of course, Literature.


Your study of Literature will help you understand the important issues in life: love, pain, heartache, and even truth. You will meet fierce villains, broken societies and perhaps even the love of your life.

In order to investigate these issues you will study poetry, drama and prose as well as a range of non-fiction texts. Catch a textually transmitted disease by studying Literature.
