Entry requirements

You require a good honours degree or equivalent professional experience.

You must supply a portfolio of writing for live performance of around 45 minutes playing time and should make a selection of extracts from your writing rather than sending full scripts.

This should be accompanied by a personal statement outlining your relevant experience, particular writing interests and why you want to study writing for theatre and performance. Work in other forms (e.g. journalism, fiction or poetry) will not be considered a valid sample.

If English is not your first language, you will also need to supply evidence of your English language proficiency.
