Creative Writing at Bath Spa is celebrating twenty-three years of excellence in 2015. Here you will join a thriving community of world-class writers and experiment with a wide variety of forms, and, with time, focus on the kind of writing you have come to enjoy most – poetry, fiction, nonfiction, scriptwriting, journalism – even copywriting and writing for new media.
As part of one of the largest and most successful writing departments in the UK and indeed the world, this course is challenging, exciting, and versatile. At Bath Spa University you can expect a professional level of tuition – and we expect a professional level of commitment and achievement from you in return.
Typical offer range for UK / EU applicants
280–320 UCAS Tariff points. including A- level English Literature, English Language, Theatre Studies or a related subject at grade B.
Candidates are sometimes asked to send samples of creative writing.
Our Creative Writing course has three main components:
Your own development as a writer
Your awareness of other writing and how your work relates to it
Your critical awareness of the markets for creative writing and how you can get your work published or produced
Throughout the course you will be expected to:
Write and rewrite your work to become a sensitive and efficient editor of your own work
Read extensively, learning how writers do things, so that you can do them yourself
Find out how books get published, how films get made, so that your own work is informed and enriched by an awareness of past and current practice
As you move through the programme you push yourself and your work as far as you can, engaging with the world outside the University. Final-year students have (among many other things) promoted a European Fussball championship; run poetry readings; edited and produced student publications and worked on live projects for the Bath Literature Festival.

Our graduates are communicators. They can talk, they can listen, and they can persuade. They are confident. They can manage projects through from initial idea to successful completion. They can work alone or as part of a team. That’s why recent graduates have found jobs with the BBC, Random House, and other media giants; they’ve gone into journalism, teaching, social work, marketing: just about any career that requires a good Humanities degree.
