‘A’ Level Drama/Theatre Studies and BTec Performing Arts courses are widely available at local colleges, and favour students who have Drama GCSE. Universities offer combination degree courses of Drama with Art, Music, Psychology, Film and Media Studies as well as ‘straight’ degrees in Performing Arts or Theatre Studies.
Studying drama can lead to a wide variety of other future options too. Employers particularly favour how drama students have great people skills, and strong communication and presentation skills. Drama can be beneficial to students who are considering any people-based careers, medicine or law, advertising, communications, youth work, directing, stage and theatre management, counselling, T.V./film production, marketing, business, teaching, creative industries, acting, hospitality or social care. These are only a few examples – there are endless possibilities!
