Merchiston Campus

Content

On Edinburgh Napier University’s dual degree collaboration with Seton Hill University, you’ll combine online and on-campus learning between two novel-worthy settings – Edinburgh and Pennsylvania.

You’ll begin Seton Hill University’s MFA in Writing Popular Fiction with a June on-campus residency in the gorgeous Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, where you’ll start writing and connect with a friendly, supportive writing community.

From there, you will spend a year (September to August) studying abroad on the MA Creative Writing programme at Edinburgh Napier University, while remaining an active part of Seton Hill’s online programme.

After satisfactorily completed all Edinburgh Napier University requirements, you’ll receive a Master of Arts in Creative Writing (and be well on your way to completing your novel).

You’ll then re-join your Seton Hill University friends at the next January on-campus residency in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. From this point onwards you will continue in the Seton Hill program.

Having satisfactorily completed all Seton Hill requirements, you will graduate with a complete novel and a Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction.

Entry Requirements

2:2 Honours degree or above in any discipline with relevant writing experience.

Once your application is received, you may be contacted by the Programme Leader with an invitation to submit a sample of writing: this is the second stage in selection.
