Consistently rated highly in the National Student Satisfaction Survey, our degree programme offers a blend of Creative Writing and English. We believe that to be a good writer, you also need to be a skilled reader. The combination of Creative Writing and Literary study is therefore central to our teaching. Our students join a community of dedicated, well-published writers and scholars. But we don’t just want you to learn from us; we want you to contribute to our culture of creativity, innovation and success. As educators, our aim is to help all our students achieve the very best of which they are capable and to direct them on a voyage of self-discovery. In particular, we are keen that you extend your experience beyond the university. In your final year you will have the opportunity to undertake a workplace module where you can apply your skills as a writer by, for example, working as a writer-in-residence. We are a small, teaching-focussed university. We have one of the best student retention rates in the country. We know and care about our students.
