Creative Writing undergraduate courses

Creative writing is a joint-honours subject:

You can also combine it with a range of complementary subjects:

The BA joint honours degree course will allow you to study a wide variety of writing, and to focus on those that attract you most, from short stories, novels, life writing, poetry, plays or non-fiction.



There is a strong emphasis on employability for our graduates, with courses devoted to professional writing and talks from guest speakers with expertise in publishing, including copy editors, producers, literary agents, reviewers and literary editors. At the same time you will be encouraged to produce your best work by following your creative impulses and writing experimentally.

The Kingston Language Scheme (KLS) offers free courses in French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic, Mandarin, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian, at several levels ranging from complete beginners to advanced. Students are encouraged to take a language for the whole duration of their degrees, therefore progressing up the levels to achieve a high level of linguistic competence by the end of their studies at Kingston. Fluency in a foreign language is one of the best ways to boost your CV.
