Since 2012, Out of Joint has run an Associate University Programme. The programme has been designed to build and strengthen our relationship with universities by providing opportunities to collaborate and learn – and even develop new work. For instance, research and development work with Hertfordshire University led to the development of Rebecca Lenkiewicz play Jane Wenham: The Witch of Walkern about witch trials in early 18th century rural Hertfordshire, which was toured nationally by Out of Joint in 2015.

The Associate University programme offers two workshops a year (one with Max Stafford-Clark and one with an associate of Out of Joint) and one weeklong mentoring internship at the office and in rehearsals for a set fee of £1000 per year. Recent Associate Universities are the universities of Hertfordshire, Hull, Lincoln, Warwick and Essex, Trinity College Dublin, Sheffield Hallam and the Danish National School of Performing Arts.
