    I am thinking of going back to Uni in about a year or two to study Undergraduate CW. Anyone on or done this? Is it good?

    The thing is... I am 28 currently, so will be a mature student, can you see any issue with this? I doubt I will do the whole halls thing again or even flatshare.

    I already have a Ba in Media Production which I never use.

    I own my own limited company which deals in books - I used to buy and sell physical books and now I publish from scratch Kindle titles. This is why I want to study CW - to help me write better and depend upon outsourcing writing/dialogue/editing/ less.

    Do you need a portfolio to be considered? I keep writing things with the idea of using it as a portfolio but then I end up developing it and publishing it instead - obviously I cannot hand in a published piece of work can I, it is under a pen name.

    Thanks

    I'm starting Creative Writing next month. I don't know how good the course is yet but I can tell you that you don't need a portfolio to get in.

    What do you need? What did they ask in your interview, if you had one?

    I didn't have an interview, I just got a straight unconditional offer based on my A Level results (need over 240-260 UCAS points). The full entry requirements are on their website: http://www.chester.ac.uk/undergraduate/creative-writing

    Hope this helps
