The Department of Theatre and Film is internationally acclaimed for its innovative approach to research, actively integrating theory and practice both on stage and in film. Its postgraduate courses make it possible for students to chose to combine film and theatre studies, or to specialise in one or the other. Students are encouraged to work both as scholars and artists: to think and to write, but also to create, to act and direct.
