Study English and creative writing

Our creative writing and English degrees have a practical emphasis: you'll learn to think creatively, analyse perspectives, evaluate problems, and frame an argument and present ideas effectively.

Your learning experience is enhanced through exciting talks and workshops from well-known writers like Samira Ahmed, an award-winning journalist; David Jenkins, editor of Little White Lies, a bi-monthly movie magazine, and Alex Stedman, fashion blogger at The Frugality and award-winning playwright, Winsome Pinnock.

You'll build a professional portfolio and work on real-life industry projects, giving you vital employment experience to prepare you for a career in writing and publishing.

Many of our graduates have had their work published. Recently, Oyinkan Braithwaite's debut novel My Sister, The Serial Killer was longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019.
