Course Summary:
This degree programme enables you to study English and Creative Writing for your combined honours degree.The English major combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College's liberal arts tradition.

Studying Creative Writing helps you to harness the full expressive potential and persuasive power of language.

The programme aims to provide knowledge of literary texts written over a range of periods; provide knowledge of the roles of cultural context and critical traditions in shaping literary history; provide knowledge of the relationship between English literature, and other art forms, and literature in other languages. The Creative Writing minor covers the craft of writing creatively in four literary forms: poetry, prose fiction, scriptwriting and creative non-fiction. Across the three years of your degree, a suite of innovative, practice-based courses is designed to unlock your creativity and progressively enhance your understanding of the writer's craft in rigorous and stimulating ways.

The NCH is a really lovely institution, and living in London was really exciting! The Accommodation on Holloway road puts you on London’s doorstep, and the local Islington neighbourhood is really nice – highlights include gigs at the incredible Union Chapel, one of the best venues I’ve ever been to. As for my course, the lectures were really high quality and the amount of contact time with your tutors is incredible, you feel really welcomed and encouraged intellectually here. The SU is also amazing, as are the support services. It’s really worth the extra money.
