SCUDD represents the interests of Drama, Theatre and Performance in the Higher Education sector in the UK. It acts as a mediating body with organisations such as funding councils, the AHRC and the Arts Councils and is consulted by such organisations when matters of future policy are discussed and decided. It is concerned, above all, to promote the multi-disciplined areas of drama, theatre and performance.



The Members Area contains information relevant to academic staff and postgraduates who are in a SCUDD member department or unit, or who are interested in what we do.

Who can become a member of SCUDD? All higher education units, with a demonstrable community of interest, which are teaching and/or researching in the subject domain at least to degree level (whether in departments, boards of study, subject groups etc.) are eligible for full membership.


Prospective Students

The Prospective Students Area contains information that will be of interest to anyone who has applied, or is thinking of applying, to an undergraduate or postgraduate course in drama, theatre and performance or registering for a research degree in these areas. This part of the site is in development.
