"This course gave me the tools I needed to be the actor I am, and gave me the confidence to find my voice and know that I can use it."
"I am most proud of..."
During my final term of third year, I wanted to explore writing for the Bath Fringe Festival. I teamed up with two of my peers and together we wrote and devised "Seeds" and formed our own collective; Between Creatives.
Since graduating, we have performed "Seeds" at Salisbury Fringe Festival and as part of Herstory, a feminist theatre festival at the Bunker Theatre in London. We are currently putting together a 2018 tour.
"The best thing about the course ... "
You are able to shape the course to make it work for you and what you need, and you are guided by the experience of the tutors in order to do that. They understand what you need even before you do. They are honest and always have your best interest at heart.
"I recommend Bath Spa because..."
I felt completely supported by my tutors every step of the way and they were genuinely interested in my progress and what I wanted. When I was struggling they listened, and when I did well, they made me feel proud of myself.
Becoming an acting student at Bath Spa means you will change. It will take time and you won't always like it, but you will look back and realise you have made the best decision... You will leave with a network of friends and colleagues that will still be with you when you graduate.
Studying at Bath Spa completely changed my life... the whole three years feels like a highlight to me. I made friends for life, lived in a beautiful city, studied at an idyllic campus, worked in the Student Union and learnt from wonderful, experienced tutors.
"I have been able to explore a dream I have had since I was a child and now I have the skills and self belief to live it."
