About the course

We believe this is a unique master’s course, combining the academic study of performance with a practice-based approach to the art of acting.

It’s ideal if you want to pursue a professional career in the theatre, to develop a deeper understanding of your craft and hone your performance skills. 

Based at our new, state-of-the-art University Square Stratford building, you will work in close collaboration with students and academic staff on our equally excellent MA Theatre Directing course as you produce and perform a range of innovative work of professional quality while also being given expert tuition in the skills of acting.
