Student life

The University of Exeter is a great place to study Drama.

The Department has a close-knit family atmosphere. Your personal tutor will offer pastoral support throughout your three years here, as well as giving feedback on marks, your progress throughout the degree, and advice on career possibilities.

The collaborative nature of our work means that you quickly get to know most people in our department and make life-long friends - we have student mentors, where second-year students offer support, advice and a welcome to small groups of new students throughout their first year.

Drama students play a large role in the cultural and social life of the University. As well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities (including working with the Guild of Students musical and drama societies), there are regular events created by students as part of the Drama programme, from full Shakespeare plays to site-specific installations.

Drama is based in Thornlea, on the Streatham Campus, which is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful university campuses in the UK. You can take a closer look at the campus by taking the virtual tours found in the Visiting Us section of the main University website.
