To many, the United Kingdom is the birthplace of modern theatre and the mecca for anyone who wishes to study drama. With its rich history of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Stoppard, Coward and more, the UK is often seen as the place to not only visit the theatre but also to study and explore as a student.

Many UG Drama or Theatre courses offer an array of specialities such as acting, directing, or even studying plays themselves from an English degree.
