This international programme links students in the UK and overseas through virtual learning.
The programme is mediated by online tutorials and conferences. A cohort of 18–20 students exchange and critique writing in a range of literary forms. You will be allocated a personal tutor (an expert in your chosen genre), and our course site provides research training modules and a cybercafé where you can meet and communicate informally.
At the end of the Summer Term of your first year, a five day Summer School is held on campus, consisting of workshops, personal progress reviews, and visits by agents, publishers and writers.
