The School enjoys an excellent international reputation as a centre for both academic research and literary creativity. In the 2008 RAE, the School had 70% of its research and writing rated as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent', ranking it at eighth in the UK. There are now more that twenty-five permanent members of staff, including well-known creative writers such as John Burnside, Robert Crawford, Meaghan Delahunt, Lesley Glaister, Don Paterson, Jacob Polley and Susan Sellers, while Michael Alexander, Douglas Dunn, Kay Redfield Jamison, Paul Muldoon, and Marina Warner have visited as Honorary Professors.

The School of English has a dynamic research culture, which involves staff, postgraduates and postdoctoral fellows in attending and organizing international conferences and literary festivals; in undertaking collaborative research and archival projects; as well as in the individual work of scholarly editing and the writing of monographs and works of literature. Our research work is divided into four groups, of which staff are members, and postgraduate students are associate members. These groups are: Mediaeval and Renaissance; 18th Century, Romantic and Victorian; Modern and Contemporary; and Creative Writing.
