Study English Literature & Creative Writing with us and you’ll learn how plots, characters and symbolism connect together to create dramatic impact and emotion. Develop the skills you need to pen an epic novel or create a set of influential poems. You’ll learn from published authors with a real passion for the written word and enjoy the inspiring surroundings of a city steeped in literary history.   

Teaching methodology

Our blended-learning courses combine tutor taught seminars and practical sessions to give you a chance to apply your learning to a real-life situation. These collaborative sessions are taught in conjunction with industry-focused workshops and trips, bringing you closer to leading businesses and innovators. Your teaching could also include professional career development workshops and Q&A sessions with industry professionals. Blending-learning courses culminate in students presenting to peers, staff and external experts. On competition of the course, you’ll receive a certificate and letter of recommendation from your tutor.

The Experience

You’ll have time to explore Oxford for yourself, as well as forging new friendships for the future, and there’s an action-packed programme of social activities, field trips and excursions to help bring your learning to life. We might even head to London for the day.

You’re not a tourist, so we won’t treat you like one. Instead we’ll help you uncover genuine local treasures and show you what life here is really like, from the inside.
