Love Poetry? Why not study our A Level English Literature course?

Roses are red, violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet, and so are you.
We are probably all familiar with that classic “poem” from our childhoods.
Back then, anything that rhymed was classed a poem, and this was one of the greats.
But have you ever considered expanding your knowledge from childhood nursery rhyme poems to some of the greats?
Perhaps a Shakespearean sonnet or Glory Falls by Maya Angelou…
Today is World Poetry Day, so we want to help more people understand the beauty of poetry.
Poetry is one of the best forms of the English language. It uses rhythm, symbolism and imagery to evoke a sense of meaning and emphasis to a subject, and reveals unspoken emotions that the author is feeling.
To be able to understand the depth and beauty behind this complex art, our A Level English Literature gives you all the tools and information you will need.

A Level English Literature

  • Do you like reading?
  • Do you have a creative mind?
  • Are you good at writing?

If your answer was yes to all these questions, then you are definitely missing out on a great opportunity.
A Level English Literature gives you the chance to read some of the greatest texts ever written, as well as give your own interpretation and expand your personal skills and knowledge.
Poems from authors such as T.S. Eliot and William Sieghart – some of poetry’s greatest.
And not just poems, either. You will be able to delve into complex Literature novels during your course, too.
Sound familiar? Maybe that’s because it is exactly the same course that you would study in a school or a college.
Our accredited A Level courses provide you with the same qualification and UCAS points that are necessary to attend university.

What career can I go on to?

Studying an A Level English Literature course can lead to a multitude of career opportunities, such as:

  • A teacher
  • An author/novelist
  • A screenwriter

…and the list goes on. English Literature is a subject that is so versatile that you are not restricted in the type of career that you wish to go into.
So if you want to expand your knowledge and further your education and career at the same time, this course is the one for you.
