Anyone know of any good literary courses?


I would love to do some study of literature.

I haven't done anything like that since I was in High School. It would be nice just to be able to do a course that gives you an opportunity of doing some study of literature, or writing, or literary appreciation or something like that.

I am in Sydney, Australia but I am not aware of anything that is out there. Does anyone else know of any good courses along these lines in Australia?

  1. Hey Becky,

    Have you looked at Open Universities Australia (used to be Open Learning)?

    They have quite a few literature units:

    I've got your email and will write back later tonight. Had a hell week at work, so I'm still chilling out.

  2. May I suggest a course or courses from The Teaching Comapny? You can often get them on very good sale ( 75% off)

  4. Why don't you enroll into an Arts degree (unless you've already done one)? You can always take your time and do one or two subjects at a time and it's great fun. Or, a liberal arts diploma? I wish I could do mine all over again.

  5. Mae - I saw that you left a comment about this and you suggested doing an arts degree!

    Thanks so much for all your suggestions everyone, they were really helpful. I suppose the biggest problem with doing uni rather than TAFE or some private course is the cost involved. One day maybe! Through your suggestions I have found my dream degree - a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Literature and Composition at Griffith Uni
