Why study Drama at Manchester?

Study with us and explore everything from literary adaptation to street theatre, from activist performance to audio design, from playwriting to directing and experimental film cultures.

Manchester is globally renowned for its arts and cultural offer. We’re home to the most theatres outside of London, the largest combined arts centre outside the capital, and cutting-edge performance groups.

You’ll benefit from our close links with the Contact Theatre and the Royal Exchange Theatre as well as our outstanding campus facilities. You can also combine Drama with English Literature or Music.
