A first class or good second class humanities degree is the normal entry requirement. Mature students with professional theatre experience are also welcomed. It is usual to commence in September, but it is possible to start at the beginning of any term. Part-time students are treated in exactly the same way as full-time students for all practical purposes; it is merely assumed that they will proceed at a slower pace. Students are normally registered for an MPhil in the first instance, and then upgraded when appropriate.
