Overview

The majority of graduates enter the Scottish Teacher Induction Scheme (TIS).

Your teaching degree will also qualify you to enter into a wide variety of other professional roles, such as corporate training and development, museum and leisure education, educational psychology, translation or media.

Texts are all around us – from books and magazines to TV, email and the internet. The ability to analyse them and their often subtle meanings is a skill that can open doors in a wide range of professional fields.

English Studies at the University of Stirling offers you the perfect chance to dedicate yourself to reading and enjoying a range of great novels, plays and poems from across the world. Your own creative writing can form part of this degree, too – as we believe it aids your understanding of literary style and technique and develops your imagination. It’s just one of the factors that makes our BA a little different from other English courses.
