Comments about BA English and German Literature - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    English and German Literature has a strong and distinctive comparative literary approach. It has been specially designed for those wishing to pursue a study of German language and literature, together with the English-speaking tradition and the interconnections and interactions between the two cultures. You can choose to focus exclusively on post- 1918 German culture; but you can also combine the study of the modern period with aspects of eighteenthand nineteenth-century German culture.
  • Entry requirements
    General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
