Creative Writing postgraduate courses

The postgraduate courses at in Creative Writing enable you to create your own pathway from a range of options.

Our creative writing MA and MFA courses offer a range of creative and professional opportunities. These postgraduate degrees include a distance learning MA, which enables study from a distance but retains an element of intensive face-to-face teaching. We also offer Creative Writing and Publishing MA which will familiarise writers with the industry.



The MFA (Master of Fine Arts) was the first of its kind to be offered in the UK. As well as offering you the chance to produce an extended piece of writing under expert supervision, there may also be opportunities to pursue a teaching certificate and gain work experience with Kingston University Press.
