You will be supported by a personal tutor who is also your academic seminar tutor and you will be taught by staff who are cutting edge academics and industry specialists. You’ll learn in our Antonin Artaud Performance Centre which includes a main theatre and two studio theatres, in addition to a suite of rehearsal and recording studios.

As we’re close to central London, we regularly organise trips to see productions at places such as the Barbican, the National Theatre, the Royal Court, and Sadler’s Wells and participate in workshops with ground-breaking theatre companies all as part of your course.

Career Opportunity

A Theatre degree will help prepare you to become an adaptable, critically driven, creative player in an ever- shifting economic climate. We not only encourage our students to be versatile creative artists but critically thinking citizens who are resilient in the world of work.

There are options for a short or a year-long work placement to develop your professional profile while on the course. To find the industry placement that’s right for you, you will be supported throughout the process.

While some graduates go on to work in the creative industries such as actor Damson Idris (2013), deputy stage manager of Shakespeare’s Globe Alannagh Cook (2015) and Les Enfant Terribles’ Assistant Producer Fiona Porritt (2015), other graduates enter the marketing sector, the education or applied drama sector, and some students pursue opportunities in postgraduate study and training.
