Back in June we set out our plans for new courses for this academic year. Now following discussion with our Trustees and the Course Leader for Creative Writing Jane Rogers we have decided to seek validation for a named degree in Creative Writing. To do this we need to develop a third level one writing course, which will be called ‘Narrative and Dialogue’ . It is too early to give many details on the course, we need to agree the course specification (module descriptor) with Bucks New University first, but the clues to the content are there in the title.
We aim to have the Creative Writing Degree validated this academic year. Together with the Textiles degree which we have previously announced, this will make five undergraduate degrees available to study through the OCA.
And since many more students are now choosing to study with the OCA for a degree, we have taken the decision to increase the level of support we provide to students and tutors. The job description for a Head of Learner Support is on our main website
