Jackie Smart, associate professor, talks about the Drama BA(Hons) course and the benefits of studying at degree level.
- At Kingston we believe in combining theory and practice. Our understanding of drama as a practical subject extends through our teaching and assessments methods. Our teaching includes practical workshops as well as lectures and seminars, for example. Your assessments will include essays, but also presentations, performances and performance essays.
- Our programme of student productions offers opportunities to create and perform in plays both at the University and further afield. Read more in the Student productions section.
- Our team of tutors have a wealth of professional experience in both drama and education. For example, Colin Chambers, the literary manager of the Royal Shakespeare Company for many years, is a Professor Emeritus at Kingston. Read more in the Who teaches this course section.
- Our base in the Reg Bailey building includes two equipped performance spaces (the Reg Bailey and the Studio) as well as teaching and rehearsal room. We also have close links to Kingston's theatre, the Rose Theatre. Read more in the Facilities section.
- Kingston is only 30 minutes from central London, the UK's cultural hub, meaning you have easy access to West End theatres and the South Bank.
