The Shakespeare Institute is hosting an open afternoon for prospective students on Thursday 29 November 2018.

You will have the opportunity to meet with programme convenors, have a library tour and speak with current students. You will be able to see the Institute at work and experience what it is like to study here.

This date coincides with one of our regular Thursday Seminars, which we would encourage you to attend during your visit. The seminar, ‘Waxy Ears and Ungodly Itching: Retracing Musical Response in the Early Modern Playhouse’ will be delivered by Dr Simon Smith, from The Shakespeare Institute. The seminar will be followed by a question and answer session.
