The BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing is also available as a four year course including an integrated foundation year, and is designed for students who do not currently meet admissions criteria for direct entry onto the degree. You will start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge before progressing onto the three year degree programme. Develop your own imagination and writing craft, and explore major texts and movements in English literature as well as reading and working with contemporary writers. This dynamic English and Creative Writing degree combines intensive study of creative and professional writing with a range of complementary modules that explore English literature, English language, and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). You can choose to study the whole range or focus your degree on Creative Writing and just one or two other areas. Alongside developing your skills in writing fiction, poetry, scriptwriting and non-fiction, you’ll gain specialist skills in analysis, close reading and writing. The development of these skills means you’ll be ready for the workplace when you graduate. There are also many opportunities to showcase your written work at the University.
