MA/MFA Classical and Contemporary Text is for actors and directors who find themselves looking beyond traditional and contemporary artistic approaches as they seek to broaden and deepen their individual practice.

Individuality is at the core of this postgraduate programme. We work with artists who use their social, moral, and ethical values to animate their practice. This is a course where you will have agency over your own work and be responsible for driving your learning and creativity forward.

It is this agency which makes the programme different from undergraduate study. With support from the staff team, you will write your own learning outcomes, determining your trajectory and ultimately, we hope, you will flourish as both a learner and a creative practitioner.

It’s an intense programme where actors and directors work together, creating a dynamic community rooted in creative collaboration. Highlights include developing new text in partnership with Playwrights’ Studio Scotland, performing or directing contemporary performance working in proto-professional ensembles and completing a month’s residency at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, London.

At the end of this residency, after undertaking classes with the educational team at the Globe, you will perform or direct sharing’s on the mainstage of Shakespeare’s Globe, a unique and iconic playing space.


This Masters programme is just the beginning of a lifelong journey of creativity, exploration, and development, led always by the values and agency of each student and graduate.

Upon completing this programme, you will be equipped to make your own decisions about the next stages of your creative and professional life. This might involve work as an actor, director, being a performance maker, forming a company, writing, teaching, or moving into other areas of the creative industries and beyond.

This is just a snapshot of some of our graduates and their unique careers.
