I’m an international student who is planning to pursue a postgraduate Masters in Creative Writing. I would really appreciate some insights regarding good courses as all I know are things I read from the internet and I’m honestly not sure how reliable that is.

So, can anyone please tell me Which universities are good for Masters in creative writing? I’m really very confused because honestly, I don’t really find much differences regarding the fees, accommodation and opportunities. I know I sound stupid but they all appear very similar.

Hi there!

I'm not a creative writing student myself, but I do know that the postgraduate creative writing programmes at my university (UEA) are considered to be very good - it is currently ranked 8th on the Complete University Guide!

A worthy mention is UEA's Creative Writing Prose Fiction course - it is the oldest and one of the most prestigious creative writing courses in the UK, with around 38% going on to be published authors after their degree I've seen the volume of their published work myself, as there is regular enough published work from UEA creative writing graduates for Norwich's Waterstones book store to have a section dedicated to their work! I recommend you read more about it here.

There are more postgraduate creative writing options at UEA besides the Prose Fiction course, which you can see here

I hope this answer has helped! Best of luck on finding the right course for you
