Placements and industry links
As well as your academic and practical studies, there is a wealth of connection with the performing arts world and other creative industries in the Drama department and wider Arts Faculty.
All of our staff are practicing researchers and industry professionals and you'll gain enormous benefit from working alongside them. We have strong links to theatre companies and individual theatre artists, local communities and a national and international network of theatre scholars and makers.
There are numerous opportunities to gain performing experience at Royal Holloway and beyond, through societies - such as the Drama Department's own Student Workshop, the Drama Society, Musical Theatre Society, Shakespeare Society, and many more - and also to get involved in the administrative side of working with groups like these. You'll find creative connections can be made with students studying in all kinds of other fields like Music, Media Arts and Creative Writing.
In addition, Royal Holloway's Careers Service shares details of placement schemes available to all students and encourages and supports you to apply for these.
