E.CW 200: Beyond Undergraduate English and Creative Writing

‘Beyond Undergraduate English and Creative Writing’ is a rolling programme of events offered to second and third year students in English and Creative Writing. This programme aims to introduce you to and/or enhance your existing knowledge of careers, employability and graduate research possibilities once you complete you degree.

The portfolio includes research seminars, careers guidance, readings and reading groups and occasional lectures. Some of these events will be delivered by external guest speakers and others, for example open lectures or readings, will also be available to academic staff and interested members of the public.

The Careers Officer in the Department of English and Creative Writing is the Convenor for ‘Beyond Undergraduate English and Creative Writing’. For 2013-14, this is Dr Liz Oakley-Brown. She liaises with the other parts of the University that are specifically focused on student employability (Careers, LUSU Involve, the Alumni Office, Enterprise) and disseminates relevant information about these areas when appropriate.

In terms 1 and 2, Liz offers an office hour for Careers and Employability and students are invited to meet with her to discuss issues raised by the programme and possibilities for their future ‘beyond undergraduate English and Creative Writing’.

The year-specific Moodle sites for ‘English Careers and Employability’ contain further information about ‘Beyond Undergraduate English and Creative Writing’.
