Comments about BA English Literature and Creative Writing - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    Many leading critics and interpreters of literature have themselves had substantial experience of imaginative writing. This degree puts the practices of writing in different genres on an equal footing with critical and cultural-historical approaches to literature. While the primary aim is to help produce better readers as much as writers, it will be particularly valuable for those intending to pursue careers as authors, as well as careers in the media, advertising and teaching.
  • Entry requirements
    General university admissions requirements All applicants must possess a minimum level of competence in English Language and in Mathematics or a Science. A pass at Grade C or above in GCSE English Language and in Mathematics or a Science, or an equivalent qualification, fulfils this requirement. For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
