Teaching

We use a wide range of methods, including lectures and workshops, small group seminars and tutorials, field trips, and film screenings.

Most modules at Levels 1 and 2 have two lectures and one tutorial each week. Our Level 1 creative writing module has one lecture and one writer's workshop each week.

This may vary at Levels 3 and 4, where you typically have one lecture and more small working groups or seminars per week.

Additionally, in our creative writing modules you will be taught by various forms of writer's workshops, craft-based close reading tutorials ('Wordcraft') and performance ('LiveWire')sessions.

The modules we offer reflect the research specialisms of our staff, allowing you to tailor your studies to your own interests.

Assessment

Assessments are carried out by coursework and examinations and vary in type and weighting from module to module. Most modules do not have any exams at all as we find continuous assessment works best.

Coursework can consist of:

  • essays
  • creative portfolios
  • close analysis exercises
  • diary or journal entries
  • tests
  • class presentations
  • team projects

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
