The University of Birmingham is engaged in an exciting five-year collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) at The Other Place. This pioneering project has seen the reinstatement of the iconic RSC studio theatre, The Other Place. Opened in 2016 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, The Other Place is the RSC’s creative hub for rehearsal, training, learning and research.
- Our students spend a day learning and playing literary games in the wonderful hospitality of our Shakespeare Institute, culminating in a trip to see the RSC's adaptation of A Christmas Carol in the iconic Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
- On Saturday 2 March 2019, we are opening the doors to both The Shakespeare Institute and The Other Place to invite prospective postgraduate students to learn more about our range of innovative study opportunities for September 2019 and beyond.
- Eight leading universities in the Midlands are joining together to train the next generation of highly-skilled arts and humanities researchers, thanks to funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
