Home > Course Finder > A Level English Literature
If you enjoy reading, this course may interest you. The texts to be studied will be drawn from a number of different periods. Whilst there is compulsory study of at least one Shakespeare play at A2 level and the works of two poets from different periods, some 40% of the course will be devoted to a range of work. In addition, you will produce a coursework folder. In two of the modules you will study the historical context in which the texts are written, one on a Shakespeare play and in the second year a comparison of two texts, one of which must be a novel. Furthermore you will demonstrate understanding of the significance and influence of the contexts in which literary texts are written and received.
This programme will enable students to articulate creative, informed and relevant responses to literary texts, using appropriate terminology and concepts, and coherent, accurate written expression.
For 16-18 year old (daytime) students, this A Level will be one of four A Levels you choose to make up a full time programme of study. You will study for a total of 18 hours per week plus one hour per week tutorial.
For people wanting to study AS in the evening, a full cost course is offered.

Applicants who are 19 or over will only be accepted onto evening provision for these particular courses.
This course runs in the day for 4.5 hours per week or in the evening for 3 hours per week. AS and A2 each take 1 year.
All courses have a fee attached to them. Some students may qualify for a fee reduction depending on their personal circumstances or age. If you are on JSA or ESA, fee remission is very likely to be available for most courses but fee remission is unlikely to be available for other means tested benefits due to recent changes in government policy. Please note that some courses are charged at full cost whatever your personal circumstances. Student Services can provide further advice. If you qualify for a reduction you will be asked to make a contribution to the college fund.
From September 2013 students, who are 24 or over, wishing to study at level 3, will be liable to pay their own fees, whatever their circumstances. For the first time Advanced Learning Loans will give students in further education access to financial support for tuition costs similar to that which is available in higher education. This means rather than an individual having to pay for their course upfront they have the option of accessing a loan, from the Student Loans Company, that they will only start to repay once they have completed the course and are earning over £21,000.
"College is much more flexible which suited me well. It also had a wider range of courses available to study than my school sixth form."
The College has made every effort to ensure the accuracy of course details given on
fact sheets, in the prospectus and on the web site. However, the College reserves the
right to make changes to provision and to discontinue courses when necessary.
Please note that the College cannot accept any liability for inaccuracies or omissions
which arise due to such changes.
