The Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Kent

Comparative Literature at Kent prides itself on the excellence of its research and its research-led teaching. The Department has consistently achieved high ratings in the National Student Survey (being ranked 1st in the UK for overall student satisfaction in 2014), and its staff made substantial contributions to the University’s Modern Languages and Linguistics submission to the Research Assessment Framework (REF) 2014, achieving an outstanding result - joint 3rd (with a GPA of 3.24). With the two higher ranked submissions in that subject area specialising only in linguistics, this has confirmed Kent as being the highest ranked University in REF2014 for the modern languages subject areas in the UK. With 56 submissions made in this subject area, 85% of the work in Modern Languages and Linguistics at Kent was graded world-leading or internationally excellent and outstanding grades were achieved for public impact work and the quality of the research environment.
