Welcome to the School of Performing and Digital Arts at Royal Holloway, University of London.

When the School was established in August 2018 it brought together the departments of Drama, Theatre & Dance, Media Arts, and Music. The School is home to over 1,000 students--approximately 831 undergraduate, 135 postgraduate taught, and 130 postgraduate research students from the UK and overseas. We have over 90 academic and administrative staff members, who bring a diverse range of teaching, research and practical expertise within and across our three departments. While we focus heavily on the distinct departmental strengths, we are also building interdisciplinary collaborations within the School, new courses and degrees which allow students to draw on the excellence across the School. Read more here.
