Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

If you have the potential to study at degree level, but you don’t meet the entry requirements, a foundation year can help bridge the gap – laying the groundwork for entry into Year 1.


The units you’ll study are designed to build your confidence and bring you up to speed for the rest of your chosen degree. As well as the Academic Practice units, which help develop your study skills for learning at the degree-level, you’ll also do three humanities units. Once you have successfully passed your Foundation Year you will progress directly onto Year 1 of your linked honours degree.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Each year we accept hundreds of students onto Foundation Year courses who have the ability to study at degree level but who don't have the qualifications to enter directly onto an honours degree.

COURSE INFORMATION

All Humanities Foundation Year students study the Academic Practice 1 and 2 units which will help you to develop the academic and study skills required for degree-level work. You will also study topics in Approaches to Creative Writing, Modern Britain Since 1945 and Understanding the Language of Culture.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Successful completion of the Foundation Year guarantees automatic progression into Year 1 of your chosen linked degree.

Graduates of BA (Hons) Creative Writing enter a wide range of employment, especially media work and teaching, where their transferable skills are particularly relevant. Recent graduates have become school and college teachers, and gained employment in fields as diverse as banking and finance, manufacturing and retail.

There is also the opportunity to engage in further study and professional training, for example some of our graduates go on to study creative writing at postgraduate level in our Manchester Writing School under the creative direction of Professor Carol Ann Duffy DBE (Poet Laureate 2009-2019). More than 85 former students of Manchester Writing School have embarked upon careers as published writers.
