COURSE OVERVIEW
In order to be successful, you must have the ability to communicate your ideas and thoughts. Our A-Level English Language course here at The Northern School of Art offers students the opportunity to explore the power of language and its place in society. It explores how the English language works, how it originated and how it can be used to best effect in a changing world.
COURSE DETAILS
Students will develop their skills as producers and interpreters of language, using these skills creatively and accurately in a whole range of situations and circumstances. They will explore the ways English Language has changed and have the opportunity to produce their own piece of creative writing and an investigation into language. Expanding vocabulary and understanding language will help students to grow in confidence and be successful. On successful completion of an A-Level programme of study, which includes this course, you will have the skills and qualifications needed to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or go directly into industry employment.

STUDENT PROFILE

MEGAN DALE What do you enjoy most about your course? I love seeing the growth and development in my writing style and how I can translate that to my other subjects too. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? It’s so welcoming and was a great transition from school. What are your next steps? I plan to do Foundation for a year first and then to study History of Art with English at university. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how advanced the language development would be, it’s all about your childhood and the early stages of speech.
