Why Warwick?
The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.

Today, more than 26,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.

The course

Taught by expert staff from the Department of English and the School of Theatre Studies, this course emphasises the relationship between writer, text, performer, critic, playing place and society within a historical, political and cultural context. You will have many opportunities to see a diverse range of productions at the world-renowned theatres at nearby Stratford-upon-Avon and on campus at Warwick Arts Centre.

Theatre Studies modules examine developments in theatrical theory and practice, often focusing on plays related to theatrical and political history, and emphasising how past movements have shaped the theatre of the present. English Literature elements focus on the close study of literary texts, exploring form and meaning. You will learn to understand and critically analyse texts, and to present persuasive and coherent written and oral arguments while developing independent thought, judgement and creativity. This gives you a distinct advantage in the workplace.

Interview

We prefer to interview candidates before making an offer. Interviews are tailor-made to each individual and designed to explore your suitability for study at Warwick, so they do not follow a set pattern. There is nothing specific you need to do to prepare, but expect to be asked about the literary works you have studied or have read beyond the syllabus, and the other interests you mention in your personal statement. The interview day typically includes an opportunity to meet with staff and students. Separate arrangements will be made for international students to complete an online interview.

Additional fee information

In line with government policy decisions, Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for the 2020/21 academic year are £9,250. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. Fees for Channel Islands students are linked to the Home fee as well as the Office for Students annual funding levels and are therefore subject to change in line with the above statement as well as the annual funding award for the year of study. The University has set the International fees for the period to 2021-22.
