    BA English Language with a year abroad (4 year)


We all use language, and we all have an opinion on what makes good or bad English. But we very rarely stop to think about how and why language works; how words combine to inspire us and move us, to persuade, encourage and amuse us – or even how we acquire language in the first place.

Swansea’s English Language degrees have been designed to provide concise and balanced coverage of linguistic theory and practice, ensuring that course modules have a vocational relevance to real-world applications of language and linguistics.

The Department of English Language and Literature is ranked 7th in the UK within the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014), gaining a score of 100% for the social impact of its research activities.


All applicants receive individual consideration. Our preferred offers for UK applicants are BBB-BBC at A-level and we require a B in English Language or the combined English Language and Literature A-level. However, flexible offers are made on review of the application form, after taking into consideration the subjects studied, predicted or achieved grades, reference and personal statement.

For candidates offering the International Baccalaureate, a typical offer would be 32-30 points. We ask for Welsh Baccalaureate plus BC at A-level. Access candidates should have 15 Distinctions and 18 Merits. We require a minimum IELT score of 6.0.
