Hey

I have posted this somewhere else, I didnt know this part was here (sorry... I'm new :P)

So yeah,

I was just wondering which universities offer respected drama courses, I'm hoping to study Drama and French at university (if i don't get into a Drama school) and I am just curious as to which ones are "better" so to speak.

Thanks
xx

I have a lot of friends who studied theatre studies and they always used to say that Bristol, Warwick and Royal Holloway were the most prestigious. However you definitely can't do drama with french at Warwick (although you could do an outside module in it, which would make up a quarter of your course), don't know about the other two.

Is your plan to eventually have a career as a professional actor? In which case you should really consider which unis offer the best extra-curricular drama oppportunities as they're so important for putting on post grad application forms etc. Of the three I mentioned I think Warwick definitely used to be the best, not sure now though.

Good luck!

I've just looked at Warwick,
And because I am hoping to take a Gap Year, I would probably have to apply during my gap year, (they only accept deferred entry in special circumstances... though what that means, I really don't know lols :P)

I think though, I have my heart sort of set on Royal Holloway for a Uni...

I'm gonna go on the open day thats in September, to see if it really is as nice at it looks :P

You wouldn't be able to take French in first year though and it would be pure theatre with no flexibility. The no deferring thing is about not wasting interview places on people who could go for an interview the year after...maximizes the chances of those applying for the year of entry. If you are on a gap year abroad you can apply for deferred th.ough
