Courses in Creative Writing

placeholder

Oxford Continuing Education offers a diverse and dynamic range of Creative Writing courses, including short online courses, weekly classes, part-time award programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and the three-week Oxford University Creative Writing Summer School.

Effective writing days

These short courses are held over three days (usually 3 consecutive Fridays) and aim to provide you with the skills needed to tell stories (fiction) or write for performance (scriptwriting). Attendees of these courses are expected to complete a piece of coursework after the course, which is accredited with 10 CATS Points at FHEQ Level 4.

Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education

The Certificate of Higher Education is a part-time course in which you study a main subject discipline, such as Creative Writing, but also undertake study in other academic subjects. The credits you obtain from taking weekly classes, short online courses, linked day schools, practical weekends and attendance at the Oxford University Summer School for Adults all count towards your final award.
