You’ll also have the opportunity to attend a writers’ retreat in the lovely coastal town of Whitby, staying next door to the Abbey and the graveyard, which was an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

What our students say...

The profile of the University (with its modernity, diversity and internationalisation) offers plenty of space to develop new ideas and thoughts. From the reviews I saw online, everyone spoke very highly of the staff and the opportunities the University offered. I’ve always wanted to study creative writing so once I found out about CU’s English and Creative Writing course and read about it, it became my first option. I knew that I’d be welcome and would fit in here. So far I am not disappointed in the slightest, I’ve learned so much in these last five months and my writer’s voice is stronger than ever. Also, I’ve developed confidence and tackled areas that I never had before. Everyone has been very helpful!

Maria de Omena, Brazil, BA English and Creative Writing, first year student in 2016/17

Modules

Overview

You’ll learn alongside other English students, particularly so during the first year, sharing a substantial number of modules designed to introduce the fundamentals of language, literature and stylistics.

We’ll cover the basic tools available for the description of language and consider how the study of language can be connected to real-world applications, like the language of the media and child language acquisition. You’ll be introduced to basic concepts in descriptive linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and discourse analysis.

We’ll also examine the different approaches to literature, considering the place of literature and theory in a wider social and cultural context, investigating the ways in which literary production and consumption has shaped, and been shaped, by various understandings of history, power, class and subjectivity.

There is an opportunity to go on a horror walk around the town to visit some of Bram Stoker’s haunts, and stay in a nicely presented hostel right next to the Abbey, which inspired Stoker to write ‘Dracula’. All the activities are designed to get you in the mood for some gothic writing.

Coventry University has climbed the rankings again to 12th in the UK Guardian University Guide 2018

In more detail...

  • Broad range of modules, such as fantasy, children’s writing, film or journalism.
  • Enhance your critical thinking and judgment, developing the communication skills sought by employers.
  • Second year writers’ retreat in Whitby, staying next door to the Abbey and the graveyard, which was an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
  • Inspiring programme of visiting lecturers – which has previously included Mez Packer, Commonwealth Prize nominee and author, and Lyle Weir, performance poet and singer-songwriter.  
  • Significant links with a wide variety of employers and media practitioners, such as Writing West Midlands and Theatre Absolute, many of whom offer professional experience opportunities.
  • Opportunity to participate in an exciting range of educational and cultural field trips, for example, to view modern adaptations of Shakespeare’s work at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company (RSC) in Stratford-upon-Avon.  
  • Opportunity to join societies such as The Literature Society and The Coventry Words Magazine Society, which organise visits by writers and writing events, as well as overseeing editorial and production for the creative writing magazine.

Design and edit our student-run Creative Writing Magazine, Coventry Words.

Our main study themes are:

  • Language and linguistics: The analysis of the nature and structure of English Language, its meaning, form and context, including how words and sentences are formed, how we make and hear sounds, how languages change and vary, and how language is organised in the brain.
  • Literary genres: A study of the different genres in the study of literature, such as poetry, drama, prose fiction and film. You will develop an awareness of literary conventions, literary history and how both are related to social and cultural contexts. You’ll gain insights and opinions about different literary genres and be familiar with the analysis and interpretation of poetic, narrative and dramatic texts.
  • Stylistics: Analysing style involves looking closely and systematically at the formal features of a text and then considering how those features affect and contribute to the meaning and interpretation of the text in question. We will examine the linguistic models and analytic techniques that can be used to describe, analyse and interpret a range of literary, as well as non-literary, texts.
  • Poetry: We will explore the cultural and political expression of influential poets from the Romantic era to the present day. In order to develop your own poetic writing, you will learn to recognise different genres of poetry and how to produce a variety of strict and ‘free’ forms of poetic texts.

The course normally lasts three years when studied full-time or four to six years if part-time. You can start in September.

Your course will be based on a series of lectures with associated seminars and practical workshop classes. For example, in the first year modules, students will form writing groups, create writer’s blogs and CVs, and promote their work through performance poetry or writing articles to submit to magazines. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.

We encourage you to attend the seminars, events, conferences and workshops organised by the Applied Research Group SHiNe. Past events have covered subjects including ‘A Student Night Out’, an international project with students from Coventry and SUNY Genesee New York.  Some students have chosen to base their dissertation on topics covered in these seminars.   

Students successfully completing the first two years of the course can opt to apply to spend a year out between the second and third years on placement or study abroad. Past students have spent a year studying in Malta or Spain.  

Our excellent industry links enable us to host an exciting programme of guest speakers covering topics such as point of view in fiction, gathering ideas for your play script, and how to get published in the ‘Here Comes Everyone’ magazine.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in educational and cultural visits at home and abroad, where you will be able to develop your knowledge and skills through fieldwork and group projects. Past examples include horror writing in Whitby, poetry inspired by objects at a local museum and gallery (published at the museum), a final year Harry Potter Studio visit, and a visit to Stratford RSC to see ‘The Taming of the Shrew’.

DHLE 2014/15

In a typical teaching week, you will have up to 12 ‘contact’ hours of teaching.

This generally breaks down as:

  • Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1-hour session up to 3 times each semester (as individuals or in small groups), as well as individual project supervision in your final year.
  • Medium group teaching: 7 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week.
  • Large group teaching: 4 hours of lectures each week.

In addition, you will be expected to undertake a further 28 hours of self-directed studying, including guided study using handouts, online activities in your own time.

Our course is designed to reflect the increasingly international context of media and culture; this is reflected strongly in the course curriculum with two international projects: short stories in Madrid and Coventry, and ‘A Student Night Out’ by students in New York and Coventry. In both these projects, students are asked to compare and contrast cultural similarities and differences.

We strongly encourage you to broaden your theoretical, cultural and practical references, providing opportunities to broaden your horizons by living, studying or working abroad on a sandwich year. For example, you may study English at Limoges in France or teach English in Malta or China. There are volunteering opportunities to mentor overseas students in Coventry as ‘English buddies’, as well as invitations to attend scholarly talks by overseas visitors. We also offer a range of short visits and field trips abroad, which are reviewed annually. We are currently introducing a field trip to Spain which is linked to travel writing.

At Coventry University, you can enjoy a whole host of multicultural and multilingual activities, such as the international film club and the French and Spanish conversation clubs. You can learn another language with the university-wide Add+vantage Scheme or the Linguae Mundi programme.

What our alumni say

I have always enjoyed English as it allows to us to articulate ideas and arguments, and see the world from different perspectives. The creative writing aspect of the degree allowed me to approach old concepts in different and interesting ways. I feel extremely grateful that you provided us with the means to get our work published. As creative writers, it’s important to get your work out there, and for you to enable us to do that is fantastic!

Unconditional offers

We want to recruit the best students to Coventry and having assessed applicants' past, current and predicted performance and commitment to the course we feel that it is appropriate to reward consistently high-achieving students with an unconditional offer from a top university. It is a commitment from us with regard to an applicants’ potential as an excellent undergraduate and we hope that this will encourage such applicants to join the Coventry community.

Personal statements and references will also be taken into account and, for some degree courses, an interview will form part of the assessment. The criteria for unconditional offers will vary across the University as entry requirements for specific courses differ and not all degree courses will be taking part in the Scheme. The unconditional offer will be confirmed once a selected applicant has made Coventry their firm choice.

Coventry University has assessed that you are capable of achieving excellent grades and we have demonstrated this belief by making you an unconditional offer. This is our commitment to you so then we ask that you reciprocate this commitment by selecting us as your ‘firm’ choice and activating your unconditional offer.

We will consider other qualifications for a pre-result unconditional offer providing that you have an appropriate proven performance at GCSE (or equivalent) level and predicted grades in line with grades that we expect to see at A-level. Other qualifications that we may consider for a pre-result unconditional offer include: the International Baccalaureate Diploma, BTEC Level 3 qualifications, Cambridge Pre-U and combinations of qualifications (e.g. BTECS plus A-levels).

An unconditional offer is what it says it is. So if you don’t meet your predictions then your place at Coventry is still guaranteed. However we would hope and expect that you continue to work hard to make the most of your potential and be best prepared to study at university level.

We can’t but our experience over the years has shown us that students like you with a track record of high grades and excellent predictions are very likely to achieve those grades. Our assessment takes into account all elements of your application to allow us to take a holistic view of your potential. There is still the opportunity to gain one of the Coventry University Scholarships if you achieve the required grades so there is a financial incentive to aim high. Unconditional offers are only made to individuals who have demonstrated their commitment so we believe their focus and determination is unlikely to waver in the final stages of their qualifications.

No, the unconditional offer is only available to those who will take up their place in 2017.
