This is a three-year full-time degree programme. It offers scholarly and practical education in musicianship and theatre, drama and film through history, theory and practical performance. The programme is designed to prepare you for many avenues, including musical and dramatic performance, composition, ethno/musicology, dramatic writing, art journalism, postgraduate study, and many non-music fields in which good critical judgement and teamwork play a vital role. You study theatre, drama and film through history, theory and practical performance. About one third of your time focuses on music, another third on drama, and another third on inter-disciplinary topics such as Music Theatre or Music and Film. Throughout the three years, you can choose from a wide variety of course units.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
