Final year students rehearse for ‘when the terror has ended the victims will dance’ an orginal play by Mark Ravenhill, their final play before graduation.

Drama Centre London has come out on top in the National Student Survey as all students polled that they were happy with their training and experience.

DCL attained 100% in the annual survey, ranking it as the best drama school in the country alongside the School of Theatre at Manchester Metropolitan University. These are the only two schools to achieve an overall score of 100%.

DCL principal Jonathan Martin spoke of the results as “a reflection of our brilliant team of tutors, and the excellent facilities and environment provided by Central Saint Martins at our new building in Kings Cross.”

The National Student Survey is an annual survey aimed at final year students to gather their opinions about their experiences and to provide honest feedback on their courses. The NSS is  taken by over 300,000 students at over 250 institutions each year.
