London Metropolitan University

Course Introduction

In this degree, you'll investigate the way in which theatre is influenced and shaped by society and culture. You'll have varied opportunities to act and develop performance skills and in your final year it will be possible to focus on areas such as directing and business practice for the arts. The course is delivered in partnership with internationally renowned companies such as Frantic Assembly, Complicite, Shared Experience, Sound and Fury, Goat and Monkey, Project Phakama and Elastic Theatre. You'll also benefit from the extensive experience of our staff, who work as theatre practitioners developing projects with professionals as part of their own own company, or as freelancers. Added value: London Met boasts great facilities for performance including three fully rigged studio spaces with sprung floors.
