What you'll learn on the course
Skills and Training
Want to get published? Learn the all-important techniques by studying some of the world’s most famous writers. Share your writing with published authors and other students in a supportive environment, while developing critical and literary skills that will help you catch the eye of publishers, agents and other employers.
Develop your writing with help from some of the greatest wordsmiths in history. By studying Writing and English Literature, you’ll explore how our most treasured authors approached their craft, and apply this knowledge to your own writing.
Our English literature modules allow you to balance your study of traditional writers like Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Dickens and Woolf with an exploration of genres such as modern science fiction, children's literature and contemporary women's writing.
On our writing modules, you’ll develop your creative and professional writing skills through independent work as well as in our interactive workshops and seminars. Our teaching staff, many of whom are published authors, will offer invaluable feedback – as will your fellow students. Combining this with an exploration of areas such as grammar, style and critical writing, you’ll discover new ways to express your literary talent.
Our modules will also give you the chance to study your own areas of interest, such as writing for radio, science fiction, film journalism or myth and medievalism. You can even choose to learn another language.
Throughout the course, you’ll be supported by published writers, critics, journalists and professionals from related fields, who can show you the skills and techniques that publishers look for in new writers.
