More about our courses

Our course in film and television studies offers students a wide-ranging knowledge and understanding of these industries and their global cultural significance. Students on our theatre courses are able to choose between exploring the sector through practice and theory, while developing the skills required for success within international film and television industries, and within theatre and performing arts.

You'll benefit from a regular roster of events where internationally respected industry professionals give talks to educate and inspire. We’ve seen the likes of  Orlando von Einsiedel, the writer and director of the Oscar nominated documentary, Virunga, and scriptwriter William Thacker, whose Morrissey biopic England is Mine was released to critical acclaim in 2017.  The acclaimed company, The Living Theatre of New York, the longest running experimental theatre company in the United States, visited our theatre students as part of their European tour, and shared their anti-establishment legacy with our students, giving them an invaluable insight into what it means to be an artist in the US today. Students were also able to participate in an intimate workshop conducted by the Company.

With such input, it’s no wonder our theatre students’ graduation showcases sell out on an annual basis and are well received by industry contacts. Individual pieces have gone on to be commissioned in professional programmes; in 2017, the piece Ghostbusters Apocalypse, was announced for a commission by InTransit Festival 2017 in a special programme called Escape Artists, which also featured pieces from the Royal College of Music and Central St Martin’s. 

Our graduates have gone to flourishing careers as film-makers; Jesse Quinones and Destiny Ekaragha are just a few who have gone on to find success with their feature films that have opened across the country. Theatre graduates who have gone on to claim more than their 15 seconds of fame include Maimie McCoy, who has scored roles in The Muskeeters and Loving Miss Hatto.
