English Literature and Scottish Literature

Information for offer holders on single and joint honours degree programmes involving English Literature and Scottish Literature. Welcome!

Welcome from Professor Jeremy Robbins, Head of School

Thank you for your interest in the subject area of English Literature and Scottish Literature. Whichever programme you hold an offer for, congratulations on receiving it. I’m delighted that you are interested in studying with us, and we very much hope that you will join our community.

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) has the UK’s oldest department of literature; one of the longest established in the world. Our students and graduates tell us that they value the School’s friendliness, the connections they have made here, and the in-depth guidance of our staff, who are experts in their field and passionate about what they do.

As well as the School’s professional Student Support Office, we have a very well-established Peer Support Group for literature, and a brilliant in-house Writer in Residence. There are lots of student societies for literature and drama enthusiasts.

Edinburgh is the first UNESCO World City of Literature, a fantastic literary city which many greats of English and Scottish literature have called home.

Ordinarily, we’d be welcoming you to our building in the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s Central Area, just across George Square from the Main Library, and a short walk from the National Library of Scotland. As we can’t do that just now, we’ve provided as much information as we can here to help you on your way to choosing the right university for you.

Good luck, and we hope to see you in September.
