The BA Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Warwick has a reputation for nurturing generations of new talent. That’s because you’ll be engaging with, watching and producing theatre from the moment that you arrive here, both on the course and beyond it.


The Theatre and Performance Studies programme Studies at the University of Warwick takes pride in its national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence. 

As a student, you will be taught by world-leading scholars, industry professionals and artists who are as passionate about the power of theatre and performance as you are.
