Providing the perfect balance between theory and practice, you’ll be taught by experts in our purpose-built Antonin Artaud Performance Centre. At the same time you’ll acquire fundamental transferable life skills, such as collaboration, negotiation, teamwork, leadership skills, presentation skills, problem-solving and project management – essential to just about every professional environment you can imagine.

English at Brunel is geared towards employability and the world beyond academia. All students can opt to take a four-year English sandwich course, which includes a year-long placement in an industry of your choice. If this is not quite what you are looking for you can instead take one of the third year employability modules that we offer to all English students. In addition, each year every student is required to participate in personal development and employability events especially tailored for English students. The study discipline, research skills and ability to shape large amounts of information into engaging arguments make our English graduates very attractive to future employers. Many Brunel graduates go into teaching or media-related jobs like publishing, marketing and journalism. Others go into the business world as account executives, campaign organisers and consultants.
