Theatre Studies

This course offers supervision in all fields of our staff research expertise within this area. In addition, students benefit from our Lakeside Theatre at our Colchester Campus, which has been established as a major venue for good drama, known for a commitment to new writing for the stage. Not only do many professional touring companies bring their productions of new plays to our Lakeside Theatre but there has been a wealth of new work produced by our own staff and students. An essential element of our Lakeside Theatre's programme has been the opportunity it gives our students to write or direct new plays, as well as re-define classics and re-discover neglected masterpieces.

Entry requirements

Master's degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject area; IELTS 7.0.

Sponsorship information
