Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could help me find a degree course similar to the 'Education with english and drama' course offered at Cambridge. I achieved ABB at A Level, so i'm obviously not an oxbridge student, but I have fallen in love with this course and cant seem to find anything like it. Preferably i'd love a uni with a great theatre where i can throw myself into as many pieces and learn super practically alongside my degree.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi. If you're prepared to go abroad, then joint honours English and Drama at Trinity College Dublin, or single honours Drama and Theatre Studies. The Samuel Beckett Theatre at Trinity is a great learning ground for all aspects of theatre.

Hi my dd has applied to 5 Uni’s (currently year 13) to do English & drama (as loves both!) she spent a lot of time looking through the modules offered (as some excited her more than others) her favourite as it stands is probably Exeter.. followed by Lancaster & Warwick then Sussex. Has conditional from all these... the lowest offer coming from Sussex. Hope this helps

It's worth noting that Trinity use a points system rather than A level grades, with the points for English & Drama being 530 (roughly A*AA-A*A*A), whereas your ABB equates to 418 so quite short - could be worth it as an aspirational choice though.

Also, I don't believe SFE offer loans so you would have to pay for it all yourself and, as the UK has left the EU, the tuition fees alone are now pretty high.

Have you considered Liverpool? They have a very flexible major/minor or 50/50 system in the region of AAB-ABB (and often much lower on results day), and I've heard Liverpool Hope is good for Drama.

Good luck

Oh dear, ha, thanks for letting me know. Probably wont be applying for there then, particularly if there are no loans. What does it mean to have an 'aspirational' choice ? I've been looking into Liverpool and looks good. Thank you very much.

No problem. "Aspirational" - above what you're predicted, or in your case, have achieved (you could probably chance AAB for instance if your personal statement is strong). Hope you find somewhere that suits you

There is a common travel area between the UK and Ireland that precedes EU membership and which still pertains post Brexit, so an Irish student for example is eligible for a student loan in the UK for a course there. Might still be worth checking out what you might be entitled to. Fees in Republic of Ireland are 3000 euro, but accommodation in Dublin is pretty expensive. CAO.ie application deadline is Feb 1st, no personal statement etc required, so it wouldn't hurt to make an application if Trinity was of interest.

You apply through CAO.ie. Must register by the 1st Feb. You can make up to ten level 8 choices from any college courses in the Republic of Ireland in rank order (or just put down joint honours English and Drama at Trinity and single honours Drama in order of preference. Tariff points needed depends on demand for the course in any given year, so can vary quite a bit. If you need any more help let me know. I found applying through UCAS equally as confusing/daunting. It's all about what you're familiar with. Afaik you will qualify forhome fee status, just as Irish students have now in the UK.
