Course description

Theatre and Performance Studies at Bristol is characterised by the way we blend historical and theoretical study with practice-based investigations. You will encounter a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical workshops. You will study historical contexts, consider theoretical perspectives and engage in practice-based activities using our two in-house theatres for your presentations. You will have access to our museum-accredited theatre archive and twenty-four hour rehearsal space. The Department of Theatre has strong links with a wide range of theatres, arts organizations and theatre companies and in their final year students follow an industrial placement within the creative industries.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in seven get jobs elsewhere in the EU – often as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in marketing, business and finance and the arts - as events organisers, projects managers, management consultants, and, of course, translators. But remember, whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
