Applied Drama

Trinity’s range of Diplomas is being updated and some of our higher level qualifications are due to be withdrawn. For more details on which ones, and the timeline for withdrawal please read our news release.

Applied Drama is a phrase which indicates work with drama that does not have public performance as its prime objective but, rather, uses drama as a means to some other educational or therapeutically positive outcome.

Practitioners of drama in education, for example, may find that this is the diploma option that best suits their situation and experience.

Applied Drama is only available for a diploma award at Licentiate level. The prerequisites are an ATCL or Guildhall Performance Certificate, similar vocational qualification in drama or theatre arts or a professional qualification in youth work or Approved Prior Learning. Candidates in these latter categories should seek advice from the Trinity College London about the acceptability of their prior qualifications before entering.

The three units necessary to complete the diploma are, as with other Trinity College London Licentiates, a written paper (on the principles of Applied Drama), submitted materials on reflective practice, and a practical demonstration to the examiners followed by a  viva voce.

Before entering, candidates are advised to study the Trinity Drama and Speech Diplomas Syllabus carefully where a full description of requirements and advice to candidates is given.
