Alumni and Networks

Over the nearly fifty years of the study of Drama at Exeter, our alumni have gone on to a huge variety of roles, covering the entire creative industry, and many other industries as well.

Every year, graduates form theatre companies, and we have regular visits from these alumni, to run workshops or talk about the industry.

And more recently:

The course helped to prepare us for the realities of managing a creative business, producing high quality theatre and working in a fully collaborative, hands-on environment.
