Creative Writing is taught in varied ways at different institutions and it may be the case that your previous courses do not equate to pre-requisites for UBC Creative Writing courses.
If you are on-campus and unable to register in Creative Writing courses for which you have been cleared, you can speak with the Creative Writing Undergraduate Advisor who can assist in finding options and registering you for other Creative Writing courses that may meet your program requirements.
