Go to the in-person Open Days that will happen in the Autumn term and listen to the 'subject talks' about several different courses/subjects. Each University will be different - both in the way it teaches a subject and the facilities available. You will get the opportunity to see and 'feel' if that University is right for you.

2020 has gone. Exeter might be worth looking at. They can combine most subjects under their flexible combined honours course. I dont know if they do theatre studies but do offer Drama which you might be able to combine with English

Hi there, I'm Daisy and I am also studying Theatre at Lancaster in my final year so I can answer this for you too!

Personally, I have found Lancaster University itself a lovely place to study and I've really enjoyed getting to know the city of Lancaster. It's a smaller city but there's always plenty of events going on and the campus is a very lively place. The course for Theatre, Drama, and Performance is great course if you're also interested in the more academic side of Theatre. The course tends to split it between theoretical classes and practical classes which means there's always something interesting for everyone. In second and third year, you can tailor the modules to you. For instance, this year I am doing a module called Writing For Performance and also a module about New British Writing for the theatre which as a director, would be the kind of module you might find interesting. These are just examples and I can't promise you'd have these in your time at Lancaster too. There were also modules that allow students to devise a piece of theatre in groups and it is performed in our Nuffield Theatre on campus which is one of the biggest black box theatres outside of London. It is also home to Lancaster Arts, a professional arts organisation which welcomes shows throughout the year so there's always theatre to go see. There's also the Dukes Theatre and the Grand Theatre in town.
I hope this answers your questions and gives you an idea of what Theatre at Lancaster is like! Feel free to ask me more questions.

Daisy (Final Year Spanish Studies and Theatre
