You have access to a host of specialist facilities including the Lakeside Theatre - a purpose-built 200-seat venue in the heart of the University campus. As a commercial theatre, we stage productions by leading touring companies and new work written, produced and directed by our own staff and students. You also have access to the the Lakeside Studio - an intimate fully equipped black box theatre. Each year, we invite proposals from current and former Essex students to make work for this space as part of our Homegrown Shows programme. This four-year version of our degree allows you to spend the third on a placement, while otherwise remaining identical to the three-year course.
