Course summary

This is a place – and a university – with a fierce commitment to the performing arts. That passion has always been part of our courses at Hull. You not only learn about the theatre; you learn through making theatre. Being a drama student here means being a member of a busy theatre community that performs, creates, communicates and engages with a variety of audiences. Our pioneering programmes let you explore the theories behind performance, as well as giving you loads of opportunities to get to grips with practical performance projects. And our staff will always encourage you to pursue your interests. So at Hull you can develop your talents in whichever area appeals to you – whether it’s as a performer, designer, creative technician, producer, writer or teacher. And you’ll experience a range of theatre-making opportunities on a weekly basis: from classical to experimental by way of digital, educational and participatory performance. You could also benefit from our relationships with arts organisations including leading theatre companies Hull Truck, Middle Child and New Diorama. And we’ll continue to support your career even after you graduate, with events such as the annual Gulbenkian Careers and Employability Festival. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at
