What are Drama Schools?

Most of the more reputable drama schools are affiliated with a university or college.  When people reference ‘drama schools’ they’re talking about fully immersive universities or conservatory programs in which the actors are attending school full time for several years. At the end of your time at drama school, you should have a degree or diploma to commemorate your studies.
