The Bourne Scholarship
The Bourne Scholarship is awarded to a Postgraduate student within the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing to enable them to undertake the MA Creative Writing Course (Prose Fiction).
The School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia has a long-established international reputation in literary studies. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), UEA was ranked joint tenth in the UK for the quality of its research in English Language and Literature (Times Higher REF 2014 Analysis), with 82 per cent of our research rated either 4* (world leading) or 3* (internationally excellent). World famous for our pioneering courses in creative writing, we are also home to prize-winning scholars and translators of literature and drama from all periods. Preference for this scholarship is given to those over 25 at point of entry.
Our unique approach to the study of literature and writing is powered by our conviction that – to quote Ezra Pound – ‘literature is news that stays news'. At all levels of study, and on all degree courses, our School is the place where criticism and creativity go hand in hand.
The Bourne Scholarship is worth £7,000, available as either a reduction in tuition fees or a maintenance grant.
