University of Chichester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The BA (Hons) Drama, Theatre and Directing programme offers you a critical and historical insight into drama, alongside a creative and analytical process towards the making of contemporary theatre.
The programme has an emphasis on new work, complimented by a strong awareness of the cultural and critical significance of dramatic practice, process and product across a wide spectrum of historical and social practices of theatre.
The Chichester Festival Theatre provides an excellent frame for the study of established theatre practice, while you will be encouraged to make and perform your own work in a wide range of different and radical performance contexts. You will emerge with a confident understanding of the parallel disciplines of drama and theatre, together with a range of analytical and creative experiences designed to motivate careers in diverse contexts.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
