There are opportunities to study Victorian literature, Modernism, Romanticism and contemporary writing from a global perspective. There are opportunities to explore poetry, fiction, drama and less traditional literary forms, such as life writing and graphic novels. Students can choose to develop a portfolio of creative writing pieces, as well as study texts from other creative industries including film, television and advertising.

Additional fee information

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in placements. When students are on an optional placement in the UK or overseas or studying abroad, they will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation and meals costs.

Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process. Students on this course are expected to obtain their own copies of primary texts indicated for use and discussion in seminars (where available) and will be responsible for any additional costs incurred.
