    Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) - launched for 2017/18

    The Department of Drama & Theatre Studies is pleased to introduce a new Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre and Performative Practices) in the academic year 2017/18. 

     

    The Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) is a conversion course to Theatre-related studies for students with degrees in subjects other than Theatre or with Theatre as a minor subject. Completion of the Higher Diploma in Theatre & Performative Practices effectively converts your degree to the equivalent of an honours degree with Theatre as the main subject. 
    It is designed for non-theatre graduates who wish to upskill, gain an additional qualification in the area of Theatre & Performative Practices which will pave the way to further study at MA or PhD level.
