Students are taught in lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical group projects, and are placed in tutorial groups for first year programmes and allocated a personal tutor who will monitor and advise on progress throughout your academic career. They take a variety of lecture based studies on historical and contextual themes and practical projects including video making, theatre production and play writing. An integral facility is the John Thaw Studio, where students can try out the performance ideas and techniques of theorists and practitioners past and present. Practical work is generally workshop based and not all projects culminate in public performance. Acting ability is not a prerequisite for study at Manchester; we do not offer actor training.
