Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


This creative and academic programme allows you to focus on areas of particular interest whilst developing a deeper and real understanding of drama and performance.

Throughout the degree the emphasis is placed on learning through practice. Teaching takes place in well-equipped drama, dance and music studios and there are many opportunities for public performance.

The Drama subject area is a lively, caring, close-knit community of staff undergraduate and postgraduate students. Independent thought and innovation are always encouraged and all our students have equal opportunities to act, direct, write, devise and design performance work.

We have close links with the profession at local, national and international levels which means that students are at the hub of a network of theatre specialists and producers. Leading theatre companies and practitioners regularly visit for workshops and projects with Drama students designed to develop your understanding of the profession and enhance your employability.

Career opportunities

There are excellent career opportunities for our graduates. These are both in drama-related areas, such as theatre, education, and the media, and in a wide range of other fields of employment made accessible through skills learned on the course in presentation, performance, critical thinking and writing.

A proportion of our students always progress to postgraduate study to gain higher academic or professional qualifications. Former students often set up their own businesses, for example as small scale touring theatre companies or drama education providers.

Past students are now working as actors, producers, stage managers and directors for employers across the areas of theatre, TV, radio and film. Teaching and lecturing are very popular career choices for our graduates, as are arts administration and marketing.
