What Will You Study

This combined major degree enables you to spend as much time on Creative Writing as you do on English Literature. Our programme offers you a rigorous and inspiring study of Literature while Creative Writing workshops, lectures and readings help you develop your own writing.

In addition to the core English Literature modules, your degree includes an Introduction to Creative Writing in the first year, an intermediary workshop in the second year, and an advanced workshop in the final year. You can also choose special units, where one of our tutors gives you deeper guidance in their own specialism, be it writing for the stage, long fiction or poetry. All Creative Writing modules are taught by published authors, who bring real-world experience to their teaching.

In your final term of each year, you will study both collaboratively and independently to complete a portfolio to be submitted for assessment.
