Course Additional Entry

Applicants require an honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject, e.g. Creative Writing or English. However, we also welcome applications from candidates with good honours degrees in other subjects (a novelist has to have something to write about!) or individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications will need to demonstrate relevant writing experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level. All applicants are required to submit 2,000 words of recently written work as part of their application. This must be creative writing in prose form, e.g. an excerpt from a short story or novel, and not an essay, play script, or similar as a Word document. Applicants will then be required to attend a short on'line or telephone interview
