Literature, creative writing and film studies

Develop your own creativity and examine that of others

Short courses for adult learners 

Start (or finish) your own novel, poem or play; produce critical analyses of classic and contemporary literature; or explore the cinematic works of a country, genre or director.

Many of our short courses, including flexible online courses, weekly classes (both in Oxford and online) and some summer schools, can be studied for credit, which means they can count towards a recognised qualification such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.

Part-time Oxford University qualifications

From undergraduate level study to advanced graduate courses.
