Here are the best UK universities to study English in 2019

The best universities to study English have been revealed.

The Complete University Guide has released its UK University Subject Tables for 2019, alongside its national UK University League Tables.

The rankings cover 70 subjects, acknowledging that, while one university may be good in general, it won't necessarily be the best one for the degree you want to study. 

When it comes to subjects as subjective as English, what works for other students may not work for you. To determine which universities offer the best English degrees, each course was measured against the following criteria: entry standards, student satisfaction, quality of research and graduate prospects.

Durham University was the highest scoring institution for English, but ranked in 6th place nationally. Meanwhile, the highest ranking university in the national tables, The University of Cambridge, sits in 3rd place for its English degrees. 

The 10 best universities for English degrees in the UK are listed below, and you can find out more about the rankings here.
