Our unique programme offers two pathways:

1. Creative Writing (Fiction)

This explores the world of contemporary fiction through a programme of critical
seminars and creative writing workshops where we focus on your own writing. Writers studied recently include Peter Carey, Jonathan Safran Foer, Jane Gardam, Grace Paley, Rose Tremain and William Trevor. Past students have published successful novels and stories.

2. Creative Writing (Science Fiction and Fantasy)

It is an exciting new offering with no direct equivalent in the UK. Students explore the wide-ranging possibilities of science fiction and fantasy, reaching a deeper understanding of both contemporary and classic fiction in the genre and writing their own original work. We also look at the science fiction and fantasy publishing scene.


The contents of the modules are as described below:

1. Character (15 Credits) -Compulsory

2. Dissertation (60 Credits) - Compulsory

3. Fiction: The Novel (30 Credits) - Optional

4. Fiction: The Short Story (30 Credits) - Optional

5. Narrative (15 Credits) - Compulsory

6. Place (15 Credits) - Compulsory

7. Science Fiction and Fantasy: Long Form (30 Credits) - Optional

8. Science Fiction and Fantasy: Short Form (30 Credits) - Optional

9. Voice (15 Credits) - Compulsory


Standard entry enquirements

To be accepted to study on the MA Creative Writing, we normally require a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.

International entry requirementsWe accept the equivalent of the above from a recognised overseas university, to find out more about the requirements from your country, see further information under support in your country.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
TOEFL paper-based test score : 575
TOEFL iBT® test: 90

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
