Entry requirements

Normally, but not exclusively, an applicant has a good 1st degree (2.1 or above). This may be in an area related to the creative industries. However, it is acknowledged that background career paths of applicants may be diverse. In fostering an ethos of interdisciplinary creativity and collaboration on the programme, we welcome candidates who have arrived at this career choice through alternate pathways. All applications are assessed on the basis of Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) where appropriate, as well as the interview and/or application form and the portfolio of work presented.

Course modules

Modules include: context and methodologies; writing and dramaturgy; devising and adaptation; puppetry; facilitation; entrepreneurship; thesis.

Assessment methods

Assessment methods include both written and practical work. The course culminates in either a showcase production or a 12,000-word dissertation. Both the production and the dissertation are presented for peers, scholars and industry professionals at the Thesis Showcase and Symposium at the egg.
