Useful links

The following are links to external websites over which the University of Exeter has no control.

Careers and employability

Jobs search websites

Unfortunately the search results are not yet useful in many Drama-related areas.
A search for 'theatre' produces jobs in operating theatres, and a search for 'drama' misses any jobs for 'directors'; ensure you use multiple searches using many alternative keywords.

A Drama Degree can lead almost anywhere, but here are some links to help. You can also download a list of Employers of Exeter graduates in theatre and performing arts.
