We are delighted to announce that the English & Creative Writing course at University of Reading has secured a top place, coming 13th in The Guardian University guide 2016 league table.

This is an upwards move of 14 places since 2015, showing that the English & Creative Writing course is moving from strength to strength.

Andrew Nash, Head of the Department of English, commented that:

'This rise in the league tables is a reflection of the high quality of teaching and learning that students experience in the Department of English Literature at Reading, and a testament to the enthusiasm and commitment of the academic and administrative staff.'
