    If you want to go straight into directing perhaps Queen Mary is not for you. But it is a very enlightening course. It opens your eyes to things you would have never even considered "Drama" or "Theatre" before which, I believe would be very beneficial if you wanted to be a director.

    Plus you have the benefit of being in London.

    In terms of league tables the Queen Mary Drama department is the best in the country, with our academics getting the highest research ranking possible.

    I can answer more specific questions about Queen Mary if you want. Just quote me or PM.

    Right, well the process might be a little different for 2010 entry as 2009 entry was their first intake for the course. Basically, what put me off was for 2009 entry, in the second and third year you HAD to take the theatre option, even though they do television and film as well. The reason for that was because we wouldn't have enough time in the new department they are building at the moment. I'm not sure if its the same for 2010 entry, but you probably have more choice as the building is supposed to be ready around September 2010. So, you would have brand spanking new facilities which of course is a great thing. I actually didn't have an interview for York - they just gave me a conditional offer. They did that with quite a few people, but they definitely did interview some, which was on a one to one interview basis. Even if you do get an offer without an interview, you will have a department day. This for us consisted of some sample teaching and being shown around the department/university. The fact that it does span theatre, film and tv, just make sure you are enthusiastic about all of the areas even if you haven't had any experience in all of them. Just show off some knowledge and make it clear that you have a general interest - there are lots of people who will have come from a theatre based background so lots of people are in the same situation. But, it is good to show it as it shows better suitability to the course. Hope this helps :-)

    I have a central related question for you

    What are your hours at the school per day? Do you have like 9-whenever hours?

    Just been curious about this for a while and haven't been able to find the information anywhere!

    Thanks

    come to Centralll
    I have a question for you francescarella
    I went to the central open day on the 29th October and i must say I do love the place. Theres just one thing that concerns me!
    We got round to talking about accomodation and i hadn't realised that most people go straight into living in a flat rather than the 1st year in some form of halls.

    I was just wondering what you did. did you commute, or have one of those few places in halls, or did you do the flat thing? and how did you feel about whichever you had.
    Theres no possible way i could commute if i got a place on the DATE course as i live in Harrogate (yorkshire), and im a little nervous about the idea of moving straight into a flat without the comfort blanket of halls first, that and im worried that the financial implications might be a little bit of an issue.
    I was just wondering about your opinions on accomodation, or on any advice. It seems like a silly thing to be fussed over when at the end of the day if i get in its a place at central! but any opinions would be REALLY useful! thank you
