Performance

Research interests include: Applied theatre; live art; digital performance; inter-medial performance; script writing; directing; comedy. We have strong industry links and we have a reputation for creating excellent job opportunities through our extensive lists of contacts and collaborative partnerships. By choosing to study in the performance directorate you will get access to a wide range of expertise that ranges from traditional theatre to live art and digital performance. In addition to the formal thesis based route we also encourage applicants who are interested in a practice-as-research approach to their studies. We have also successfully supervised students who wished to work across disciplines.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have a 1st Class or upper 2nd Class undergraduate degree that provides a foundation in the principles of performance; this could include a performing arts, dance, contemporary performance, technical theatre, drama, music theatre or performance and media degree but also other social science and humanities subjects (such as sociology or cultural studies that are exploring an aspect of performance studies). A Masters degree is preferred but not essential; however, applicants without a Masters degree should provide evidence of previous research methods training. We welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully; the Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count. The APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course; 2 forms of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). English requirement for non-UK/ EU students is an overall IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in any one element.
