University of Hull has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Be part of a close-knit, friendly drama community – based around a working theatre in a Grade II-listed building - on a course with excellent career prospects.
This is a remarkably theatrical city with dozens of theatre companies – small wonder Hull was named the UK City of Culture. We’re one of the oldest university drama departments in the country with a commitment to the performing arts going back more than 50 years.
Our students love the Grade II-listed Gulbenkian Centre where they enjoy exclusive access to a purpose-built working theatre complete with studios and workshops
99% of our drama students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey for the academic year 2016/17, published by HESA 2018)
Benefit from the facilities of Middleton Hall where we've invested £9.5 million to create a concert venue, music theatre and cinema, with industry-standard recording studios
Engage with local arts organisations, including Hull Truck Theatre, and graduate theatre companies such as Middle Child, Grim Visions, Silent Uproar and the Roaring Girls
You’ll take part in at least two major student theatre productions each year as part of this programme, as well as having access to a range of extra-curricular opportunities.
- In your final year, you’ll form a small theatre company offering a potential launch pad into your future career
Drama at Hull allows you to develop your talents as a theatre maker, performer, critic, writer, technician or designer. This course blends practical work with theory, and our wide range of options give you the chance to follow your interests through your studies.

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.

It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
