Inspirational English alumni


Studying English literature at Brunel will allow you to follow your interests in a subject you love, while giving you a wide array of skills to succeed once you graduate.

We are committed to giving you the knowledge, skills, and experiences you'll need to confidently approach your future. One of the best things about our English courses is that you will develop practical skills like communication, critical analysis, goal setting and project management, along with working independently and as part of a team: skills that are highly sought after in the graduate world. This, in addition to compulsory employability modules and the option to take a work placement - both features of our English undergraduate degree - means that you can prepare for your chosen career whilst immersing yourself in a subject that you love.

Many of our graduates have gone on to do great things whether that is in the literary and creative industries, media related roles, business functions like marketing and HR and beyond. Follow some of their journeys to see how we helped to support them in achieving their goals.
