The English for Schools Programme
For many years, English at Queen’s ran an on-campus Schools programme for NI schools, offering lectures on texts on the CCEA and AQA curricula. For 2022, we are re-introducing the programme in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, offering short online lectures, discussions and presentations on texts on both A-level and GCSE curricula, by members of the English staff at the School of Arts, English and Languages, as well as doctoral researchers with expertise in the topic at hand.
The programme will expand throughout the year, so please re-visit for further videos.
