The English Language A-Level is the study of spoken and written words and how writers use language to fulfil purposes, target specific audiences, reveal attitudes and evoke emotions. The course is quite technical and you will be equipped with the tools and vocabulary to deconstruct texts in detail, looking specifically at how words and grammatical structures can affect meaning.
The English Language provides a good range of core academic, analytical and written skills. It can lead to a variety of degrees and career paths, including specialist areas such as Speech Therapy, Publishing, Journalism and Teaching. Many students who study this subject go on to follow programmes in Journalism, Teaching, Marketing, Human Resources and Advertising.
At least five 5s at GCSE, including at least a 5 in English Language.
Have you considered studying a Mixed Programme (A-Levels and Btecs) Whether you’re on target to achieve five 5s in your GCSEs or not there may still be an option to study A-Levels alongside a BTEC qualification at Newman.
For students who are keen to study English at university, taking English Language with English Literature is a favoured combination. Other popular subjects include; Media Studies, French, German, Spanish, Sociology, and Psychology.
