Your Career

School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing

You’ll benefit from a programme of tailored opportunities during your time here that give you the chance to build on the interests, ideas, skills and experiences from your degree. 

These include development workshops, information sessions, internships, and volunteering opportunities. This support complements the wider opportunities we offer you through our dedicated careers services, including the UEA Award, through which we can recognise the range of your activities while you’re here that help you develop the skills and qualities for life and employment.

You could work as an intern on our Innovation Prize or on our online and social media content as one of our Digital Ambassadors. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in our publishing company that works with students, Egg Box, and to develop your dramatic skills through role-play with Cast.

As a Masters student, you’ll leave us equipped with the skills you need to prepare you for doctoral research as well as transferable skills in research, project management, and critical thinking. Our creative Masters students also benefit from the chance to meet some of the United Kingdom’s leading agents and publishers, who regularly visit us to give talks, and from being published in our annual anthologies of students’ writing.
