Q&A Archive

These were the questions asked during the Postgraduate Opportunities in Drama and Theatre Arts live event.

We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.

We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on 20 March 2019. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.

Rowan Johnson asked:

Of course most postgraduates go on to teach, but would you please share a bit about the kinds of job opportunities postgraduates from your program have found?

Richard Swain replied:

Hi Rowan,

Thanks for your question. While many of our graduates have entered roles related to the programme, such as playwriting, directing or teaching drama, others have used their transferable skills in a wide variety of other occupations, ranging from production management, to marketing, to arts administration.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Richard
