Many congratulations on your offer of a place at the University of Exeter, and a really warm welcome to Drama!

Our students and staff make our department one of the most stimulating and vibrant places to study drama in the country. Between an exciting range of modules, student-led festivals and visiting practitioners, there are always a few things going on!

The breadth and depth of our programme benefits from our experience as one of the oldest Drama departments in the UK, as well as on our commitment to research-led teaching from staff at the cutting-edge of their field. We pride ourselves on our world-class resources and the opportunity we give our students to make their own theatre.

We encourage students to embrace the transformative power of live performance – to explore the relationship between theatre and society, and to think of their work as both responding to and shaping the world we live in.

Student feedback plays a major role in our course design and in 2016, we were rated 1st for student satisfaction among Russell Group universities for Drama in the National Student Survey.
