Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study English and Creative Writing?
Being skilled in writing is an increasingly rare thing, but is and will always be a skill that businesses and people need every day. From a wide range of careers in professional writing, to being an author and giving people the satisfaction that can only come from reading a great novel, studying English and Creative Writing can open a lot of doors.
As with a lot of creative interests, writing is a skill set that is improved by exposing yourself to different writers from different cultures and backgrounds and with different perspectives, styles and focusses. Immersing yourself in literature and the practice of writing will help you develop your talents to the highest standards.
