University of Surrey
This programme is designed to assist aspiring writers with honing and developing their writing skills in prose fiction and poetry. The programme will equip students with the research and writing skills they will need to produce both critically informed prose or poetry and creative criticism; they will also have the chance to reflect productively on both the creative process itself and the finished work that has resulted from it.
Applicants should have a 1st or 2.1 degree (or equivalent) and will be asked as part of the application procedure to provide a portfolio of creative material (5,000 words prose or equivalent). In exceptional cases, students with a proven commitment to creative writing but no 1st degree may also be admitted. IELTS minimum overall: 7.0. IELTS minimum by component: Reading: 6.0, writing: 7.0, speaking: 6.0, listening: 6.0. We offer intensive English language pre-sessional courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here.
Compulsory modules: Creative writing workshop; research skills; literary scholarship and creativity; creative writing portfolio (including reflective critical commentary-15,000 words in total). Optional Modules: Offered by the School of English and Languages in order to personalise studies.
Assessment methods for 15-credit modules will usually be a 2,500 word portfolio of creative work (or equivalent for poetry), plus a 500 word reflective critical commentary; a 15,000-word dissertation.
