    HI everyone!
    I'm interested in studying Creative Writing as a degree and I've heard completely mixed thoughts on it. Is it a good course to choose?
    De Montfort are newly offering the single honours and I really like the sound of it but because it's a new course I'm just a bit nervous. My second choice is Derby and am attending their open day next week.

    Thanks!

    It's got a lot of controversy surrounding it as many think it's a useless degree, hence why it isn't offered by top universities. However, if that's your passion I'd pursue it. In my opinion though, you'd be better getting an English and Creative Writing degree or a straight English BA with lots of flexibility to take creative writing modules ie. Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds. These are better respected and come with more job prospects after.

    Creative writing as an MA is also an idea you could think about?

    Hope this helps X
