St Mary's University has an incredibly strong reputation for Physical Education teaching and sports performance. The campus itself is greenly'rural, yet London'urban, located amongst many partnership organisations for students to access for their own work based development. The uniqueness of the course is displayed in the variety of sports industry modules options on offer, enabling students to choose several career pathways. The course highly regards innovative use of technology to enhance the student experience, particularly in relation to supporting development of students' teaching and coaching practice. St Mary's has established strong links with over 200 schools that form our teaching partnerships and provide a diverse range of teaching settings for our students to gain work placement experience. We also have strong links with a Premier League football club, where there are invaluable qualification and work'based learning opportunities. The course is further supported by a team of lecturers who have a wide range of expertise in academic and industry fields, national and Olympic/Paralympic sport arenas and professional expertise and experience in PE and sport, who make every effort to know their students by name, not by number. There is no snobbery in the teaching of creative writing at St Mary's. Our job is simply to make you the best writer you can be. We are open to all kinds of writers with a wide array of interests, from science fiction to screenplays and from rap to romance. You tell us what you want to write and we will help you to write it as well as you can. There is only one way to write, and that is to write. Perhaps that sounds like circular reasoning, but it's the fundamental truth about the craft. In the Creative and Professional Writing programme we want you to write. A lot. Because if you love writing, and we assume you must, then you just have to sit down and get to it.
