offer a range of degree courses in the following subject areas: Creative
Music Technology, Digital Media, English, Theatre and Performance and a

are designed to prepare students to engage with contemporary art and

Following two successful residencies by Proto-type Theatre in 2009-10,
and Reckless Sleepers in 2010-11 (the outcome of the second residency is
currently showing at Flare International Festival in Manchester), the School

performance work(s) of professional (or near-professional) quality. The
performance outcome(s) will be presented to the public at the end of
this residency, as part of Coastival, see http://www.coastival.com/ The
materials and work methods involved should allow and encourage students
to undertake a high degree of initiative and responsibility in
developing the work further after the end of the residency, for touring
to national or international festivals, as the foundation for individual
artistic practice or for funding a graduate company.
The residence will be hosted within the University of Hull's Scarborough
campus. Our facilities include three professional, flexible
workshop/performance venues of up to 80 capacity, a workshop studio and
other facilities that can be booked according to requirements. The
