Many of our students go on to study English at university, sometimes in combination with other subjects, such as Modern Languages, History, Politics and Classics. A degree in English qualifies you for careers in many areas including Law, Theatre, Media, Business, Publishing, PR and Marketing, Entertainment, Communication and Politics. Employers love English graduates: the skills of analysis will stand you in good stead in many industries as they show you can apply yourself and think critically about small details, and your ability to write eloquent, extended essays will show that you are an effective and talented communicator.
