Hugh has held creative writing fellowships at the Universities of East Anglia and Exeter and currently holds an Honorary Fellowship at Manchester Metropolitan University. He has held fellowships as well under the Royal Literary Fund scheme at Sussex, Kingston and Kent Universities and at the City & Guilds of London Art School.

He has delivered many lectures about his own work and the process of screenwriting. He has run workshops particularly focusing on adaptation, he has taught at the National Film and Television School, and run courses for the Arvon Foundation. He was for ten years a part-time tutor at Bournemouth University's Media School and is currently a mentor on the MA Screenwriting course at the London Film School, working on a one-to-one basis with his students.

Hugh's talent for supporting the work of students and taking them gently and creatively through the script development process has been of huge benefit to his students and resulted in some remarkable work, with many of his students receiving distinctions. Hugh has the ability to incisively determine the problems of a screenplay and nurture the student into reworking the script in a way that preserves the original authorship. His skill as a script supervisor is formidable.
