Find out about the multiple ways you can interact with like-minded students.

The English Society

We are fortunate to have a very active English Literature and Creative Writing Society. Run by students for students, they organise a range of social, cultural, and academic activities. Recent events include talks, readings, theatre visits and a graduation ball.


Our students publish their own journal, with essays, fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. Visit the Polyphony website and follow Polyphony on Facebook or Twitter.

Peer Mentors

Many of our second and third students volunteer to help new students settle into life at University and make the most of their time at Manchester, both academically and socially. The English peer mentors are extremely active and rated among the best in the University!
