Course content

The Drama by Practice as Research programme is for practitioners who want time to develop and reflect on their work in a supportive and challenging environment.

It is also for recent graduates who want either to develop a body of practice or to conduct practice-based research at a higher level.

The programme leads through supervision to project planning with practice-based presentations, which are then written up for the final dissertation.
