I'm another non-English student, but I did used to go out with an English student and so heard quite a lot about the course. :) In fact my advice is probably quite general; basically (as with most Oxford courses) English is an awful lot of hard work, and if it's something you're not fully committed to it will become a serious burden.

I don't know whether this varies by college, but at mine (St Johns) the English course is one of the most challenging courses in terms of quantity of reading and essay writing required. It might be a peculiarity of the tutors here but the English students seem to work ridiculously hard, so I definitely recommend making sure it is the right course for you -- if it is it will be incredibly rewarding, but if it isn't it could make you very unhappy.
