Welcome to Theatre

The University and the Octagon Theatre have developed an innovative BA (Hons) degree in Theatre which is set to admit its first students in September 2015, enabling them to study the critical and practical aspects of theatre in both university and professional settings.

Comprehensive Insight

The degree offers comprehensive insight into the creative work and professional practices of one of the UK’s leading producing theatres.

Work with a Professional Theatre

The majority of student practical work will take place in a purpose-built educational facility which simulates the structure and working practices of the professional theatre.

Practice-based Elements

The practice-based elements of the course are strongly underpinned by critical components that emphasise the significance of textual analysis and research at all stages of the programme.

Academic and Research Skills

The programme will develop your academic and research skills, prepare you for study at masters level and expand your experiences and outlook in relation to the world of theatre and the wider creative industries.
