Teaching and learning
During the course you will be taught by a wide variety of methods, including:
- workshops and feedback sessions
- computer lab sessions
- readings and talks from external speakers
- individual tutorials and supervisions
- directed and self-directed study, writing and research time
There will be approximately two hours of contact time per week for each module.
Throughout the course, you will have the chance to talk individually to members of staff, and to blog about your on-going experience on a dedicated course blog.
Assessment methods will include Creative Writing portfolios, reflective commentaries, a research project, an oral presentation, and a final dissertation.
As well as encouraging me to embrace my ideas and have confidence in my writing, the course has improved and strengthened my academic voice. The tutors in the English department are passionate about the subjects that they teach, which always makes our seminars engaging, entertaining and enjoyable.
