About

The Drama by Practice as Research programme from University of Kent was at the forefront of pioneering Practice as Research and continues to lead the field. 

Overview

During your time at Kent you will have a minimum of two supervisors who will support and guide you through your academic and professional development. 

By taking the Drama by Practice as Research programme from University of Kent you will meet regularly with your supervisor(s) who will not only guide your research but will also help you to identify areas where you may require further training or support. 

A series of reviews will take place throughout your studies in order to ensure that your research stays on track and that you have all the necessary support and resources required to successfully complete it.

Careers

Drama PhD students come from a range of backgrounds. Some have followed the academic path through from undergraduate studies, whilst others come to us after working in the Arts for a number of years, and others are seeking a career-change. We also have a number of PhD students who join us in retirement. Whatever your background and experience, we treat each PhD student as an individual and tailor your support to reflect the reasons for doing a PhD and what you want to get out of it. Many of our PhD students have gone on to have successful careers as academics both in the UK and internationally. Others have used their PhDs to develop their artistic practice in new directions, whilst many have also gone on to work in the Arts, Culture and Heritage sector: gaining professional positions in museums, archives, the media, and theatre. We are proud that Drama at Kent has a reputation in the theatre industry for producing innovative, creative and passionate graduates.
