Benefit from teaching by active theatre practitioners, build links with internationally renowned theatre companies and learn in excellent facilities that include three fully rigged studio spaces with sprung floors. This is a degree that is committed to learning through practice with a focus on acting and performing. You’ll hone these skills through technique classes and practical projects and will engage with theory to give you a full-circle understanding of the field. In your final year you'll be encouraged to specialise in an area such as performing, directing, writing, dramaturgy, design, producing or business practice. This will help you develop into an employable, entrepreneurial theatre and performance practitioner. You’ll also be able to draw upon our links to theatre companies, which currently include Frantic Assembly, Complicite, Graeae, Clean Break, Goat and Monkey, Project Phakama, Dawn State, Superbolt, Playing On and Elastic Theatre. We also have international links with universities and drama schools in Italy, Poland, Croatia and France. These connections can help you gain internships or placements, boosting your career prospects after graduation. As a graduate, you could find yourself working in many exciting areas of theatre, including acting, directing, producing, community performance or theatre in education, theatre-making, arts policy making and arts administration or marketing.
