Program Overview

Program Description:

The Writing for Performance course develops performance writing skills, technical understanding and personal identity. There is a particular focus on creating theatre to inspire change in a wide range of theatre and non-theatre settings.

Launched in 2015, this new pathway provides students with the opportunity to learn how to make theatre while also focussing particularly on the role of the writer within a wide range of performance contexts. Building on its close relationship with the BA (Hons) Drama, Applied Theatre and Education degree, Writing for Performance focuses on socially engaged practice whilst introducing students to the dramaturgical skills of writing.

Students will participate practically with the processes of writing for performance, whilst also engaging with the different theories and practices of theatre making and performance.

3 A Levels at B (preferably including English, Drama and Theatre Studies, Performing Arts, Communications or Media Studies), or equivalent, 5 GCSEs at C or above (must include English). Students would also need to have an IELTS score of 7.0 or more.
Scholarships Description:
There are a wide range of scholarships and bursaries available to both prospective and current students, for more information please visit the schools website.
