Many congratulations on your offer, 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 our commitment to research-led teaching from staff at the cutting-edge of their field.

The drama department prides itself on its playful, collaborative approach to theatre. We have a really hands on approach, with at least 9 hours of practical contact time a week. As a relatively small department with amazing facilities, staff and module choices, you can develop in your own way with close contact to professors and personal tutors. The department offers talks, workshops and seminars from external and alumni companies. We also take part in collaborative projects with the wider Exeter community. We hope to see you in September!
BA English and Drama
I most enjoy... The thing I enjoy most about my degree is being able to work with people who truly love what they are doing – both staff and students. The university and city of Exeter are great places to live and study with that perfect mix of modern student life and historical beauty. When I graduate, I am interested in potentially going to drama school as a post-graduate degree or potentially travelling to explore the literary and theatrical cultures of other countries.

I most enjoy... The fact that my degree is so flexible and this is something that made me want to study here. There are a lot of optional modules that you choose yourself meaning you are always studying something that you truly want to learn about! Because I’m doing joint honours, my course is so diverse! One minute I’m reading Beowulf, the next I’m warming up with a game of capture the flag!
I most enjoy... The way that drama challenges the misconception 'Drama is not a proper subject'. I can't express how false this statement is! I absolutely adore Exeter as a place because of how picturesque it is. The campus is adorable and the town is friendly and clean. I am considered a 'northerner' and I must admit that now I am down here, I hardly find myself wanting to return. After I graduate I would like to continue my studies as a postgraduate - most likely at The University of Exeter.
