Although applicants normally require a first degree (usually at least a 2:2) or HND in a relevant subject and a minimum of three years post-qualification experience in a relevant field to undertake postgraduate study, we recognise that many people have a wealth of valuable skills and knowledge developed at work or through training. If you have the potential to succeed in postgraduate or post-experience studies we will consider your application on its individual merits.

Course contentThe MA Theatre Practice is part-time and designed to fit around professional working life. The degree is project-centred, giving you the chance to carry out a creative, practice-based or academic project in Theatre Practice. If accepted on to the course, you will conduct a project over two years, under our supervision, as well produce a dissertation in the second year on a related theme.
Our staff are able to provide expert guidance for a wide range of projects and dissertations, and most of the teaching on the course takes place through one-to-one tuition with a Theatre Practice specialist. The foundation of our expertise lies in the Centre for Media and Culture Research, which has an established research and publication record. As a Masters student, you are invited to the Centre's regular research seminars and public lectures.
The MA Theatre Practice is part of our successful Creative Media Arts scheme. Our MA students have undertaken projects such as developing film and television scripts, creating websites that build on new ideas, curating exhibitions of cutting edge work, writing innovative fiction, making documentaries and dramas, creating portfolios of digital photographs, and researching aspects of the media, arts and educational organisations. In negotiation and agreement with your tutor, the kind of project you choose to do for your Masters is up to you.
Students have full access to digital media facilities, a theatre and a digital gallery, supported by dedicated technicians. With LSBU close to the South Bank, across the river from the West End and Soho, our students have unrivalled access to the capital's creative and media arts communities.
