    The creative writing one gives you 60 units. That's half an academic year in UK. It progresses, they say, to any of several Master's degrees in various aspects of creative writing (Thrillers etc.) But they don't show you how to complete the bachelor's you'd need first. I guess that's a totally different package. One size does not fit all, I guess.

    Hmmm- same as my creative writing cert. from a Canadian Uni., earned about 20 years ago. Same amount of credit, too. Don't think another one would do me any good. Not bad for others, though. Certainly a bigger name - and close to what I paid 20 years ago. For Cambridge, I'd say that's pretty good.
