But each module at Warwick is a semester long: so I don't know how sustained the workshop experience will be.
I know ultimately it's how much time I dedicate, but the course structure and all will surely make a difference too.
I'll apply for internships and work experience regardless of where I go (and I've already got some), but it would be great if you could tell me other pros and cons that can help me choose.
My problem is, there is plenty reason for both universities, as showcased on respective websites, but since I'm an international student, I can't exactly visit the two places, so most of my research is based on websites and forums.
It isn't going to help you indeed it may hinder you with a career in publishing because everything about it says you are only in publishing until you can establish yourself as a writer. What employers want is experience and proven practical skills rather than endless bits of paper.
Yes I completely understand, the getting into publishing was an after thought, that is not going to be my primary parameter to choose between Warwick and UEA.
This is the pre-eminent creative writing course in the country.
As a result it can attract the best teaching staff rather than simply writers wanting pin money.
Run by Faber & Faber, these courses are run by well established writers, not academics, and you will come away feeling energised and enthused for writing rather than saddled with debt.
I know somebody who went to UEA for MA creative writing and she landed a job on television script writing team for along running tv series.
