The Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University is pleased to welcome applications for the Joyce Nield Scholarship for students joining the programme in September 2021 or January 2022. The scholarship will assist a student from a non-UK Commonwealth country with the cost of an MFA or MA in Creative Writing.

The scholarship will be awarded to an applicant of outstanding potential and commitment, and will cover the tuition fees for one 30-credit course unit from your programme of study, whether you are studying full- or part-time, on campus or online. Our MA is 180 credits in total and the MFA 300 credits.

To be considered for the scholarship, you should:

  • Be a citizen of a non-UK Commonwealth country.
  • Submit an application to the MFA or MA Creative Writing programme before 31st August 2021 (for September 2021 entry) or 30th November 2021 (for January 2022 entry);
  • If you are offered a place on the Masters programme detailing which non-UK Commonwealth country you are a citizen of, and also how you would meet the criteria for a successful applicant (as detailed below).
  • Please note that the Scholarship is not transferrable; if a student transfers courses or changes their study mode or date of entry to the programme they will no longer be eligible for the Scholarship. If a student withdraws from the programme before completion, they will be required to repay the value of the Scholarship to the University. The Scholarship is for self-funding students only and cannot be applied to sponsor invoices. Students in receipt of the Scholarship are required to check this does not conflict with the terms and conditions of any other scholarships, bursaries or funding sources. 

The successful applicant will be expected to act as a “Masters Scholar” and make a modest, but important, contribution to the learning community of the Manchester Writing School – whether on campus here in Manchester or on an international basis through distance learning platforms. Examples of this might include: arranging a seminar, workshop or small project; representing the university at an event or festival; undertaking a pilot project or placement with one of our partner organisations; encouraging the wider university community (including undergraduate students) to engage with Manchester Writing School activities.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
