This programme is also available as a 13 month MA, training at NTI and Rose Bruford College. The MA course structure is under review and more detail will be added to our website in early 2023.

This programme is only suitable for US citizens as the National Theater Institute (NTI) cannot host International students for the element of the programme delivered here. If you are not a US citizen, you will not be eligible to apply for this course, but you may be interested in one of our other Postgraduate programmes.

Why choose this course?

  • Expert training: Drawing on the benefits and experience of two noteworthy educational institutions with an excellent history of delivering high-quality vocational theatre training, you will study performance and theatre creation in its totality: acting, directing, playwriting, music theatre, theory, history, and dramatic literature, as well as several basic aspects of technical theatre.

  • Unique approach: This MA/MFA programme offers a unique global degree across two continents. The programme uniquely integrates the British and American approaches to theatre training. This programme attracts students who are not just internationally-focused and highly motivated but also interested in self-sustaining approaches to theatre making.

  • Multidisciplinary: Students will undertake a profound practical investigation into contemporary performance, directing and writing, and their relationship to making new theatre and performance creation.

  • Industry contacts and networking: Build a network and make connections on both sides of the Atlantic. Graduates can take part in a showcase in New York.

  • Graduate Visa: On successful completion of the MFA you will be eligible to apply for the Graduate visa, which will give you permission to stay in the UK for at least 2 years. With a Graduate visa you can: work in most jobs, look for work, be self-employed, continue living in the UK with you partner and children (if they’re eligible), do voluntary work, travel abroad and return to the UK.
