Study English, theatre and creative writing

When you study English, theatre or creative writing at Birkbeck, you will be based in a building that was once home to Virginia Woolf and frequented by members of the Bloomsbury Group. The building houses our own creative hub which includes the Peltz Gallery, Birkbeck Cinema and a theatre and performance space.

You will be able to gain skills, practical knowledge and research which prepares you for a career in the arts or advanced studies.

Our prestigious research nourishes a vibrant teaching and learning environment in which you will be taught by world-class researchers who are shaping the field.

Birkbeck was ranked 2nd in the UK for its English Language and Literature research in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework.
