About Creative Writing at Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Manchester Metropolitan University

Embark on our Creative Writing degree and from the very start you'll study and practise the art and craft of writing in a wide range of established and new forms, from prose fiction and poetry, to screenwriting and writing for computer games.

You'll learn from established poets, novelists and scriptwriters at our Manchester Writing School - writers who know what it takes to turn a flash of inspiration into award-winning words on the page. The course also has a strong emphasis on professional development, and in our practical 'Beyond the Page' unit you'll look at professional practice in the literary industry and working in the cultural industry in general. In our workshops, you'll study the formal aspects of creative writing as well as putting your own skills into practice.

If you choose the placement route, you will be able to spend Year 3 of your studies on an industry placement. A placement is a key element of the course as it allows you to apply university-based knowledge, skills and understanding to the real world of work. It also gives you an advantage when you begin looking for your first job upon graduating. All of this culminates, in your final year, in a challenging creative writing project of your own. And for those looking to develop their craft still further, this degree is excellent preparation for our Masters in Creative Writing.

    Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography

    Testimonial from Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "I chose to study this course because I am passionate about every aspect of photography and choosing this course enabled me to explore all the possibilities of it. I studied the syllabus of the course and it suited my needs, plus the University has great facilities and helpful technicians and professors.

    The thing I enjoy most about my course is that I get to experiment with different approaches to making a photograph and I am always encouraged to embrace failure when making work. The course has helped me to prepare for my future career by helping me place myself into the broader environment of art-making.”

    Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising

    Testimonial from Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "Every year our tutors bring people from the industry from different backgrounds; entrepreneurs, managers, industry experts, which has helped me to see what I could do in the future, as well as being a great opportunity to network and be inspired!

    The thing I love the most about Manchester Metropolitan is the amount of effort that is put into student support, no matter the issue, there will be someone willing to help. The international welcome week and all the activities that were related to it were remarkably helpful. I got to meet many people that were experiencing things similar to me."
