A first degree is normally a pre-requisite for entry onto the MA course, though this can be in any subject. You will be asked to give details of your academic background, work experience, and an outline of what you hope to achieve on the MA. You will also be asked to supply references and a sample of your creative work.
The deadline for applications is the last day of February in the year the course enrols. We hope to reply before the end of March. Application forms can be downloaded from the University website. Contact Lyn Kellett.
