Articulation for Further Studies

In addition to generally available opportunities for further studies locally and overseas, special arrangements will be made for graduates from this programme to articulate to a Master’s (and possibly eventually to a doctoral) programme in the Department of English and American Studies of our partner – University of Potsdam in Germany. Articulation arrangements with other local and UK universities are also being positively explored.
