...the best decision I have ever made.
The Professional Writing degree is loved by its students and most of our applicants come to us through word-of-mouth.
In many larger universities, lectures to hundreds of students are a common delivery method, however our format is a lecture-seminar hybrid where smaller groups of students are involved directly in creative and academic exercises – this is known amongst education specialists to be more conducive to learning.
Students are also passionate about the degree because it teaches them to be better writers. Everyone who comes to us already has some writing talent, but through the programme they refine that talent. They learn how to improve their plot structures, their use of language, their characterisation. They explore different mediums that they never thought of writing for before – many students come to us wanting to write a novel, but leave with a completed feature film script because they’ve found a new direction. It’s an exciting process and even more so when their improved skills and new industry knowledge lead to them being professionally published.
