Beth's Bath Spa story
The course prepared me in many ways.
One of the most important for me was finding out about portfolio careers. I’ve always had a lot of interests so I love the varied lifestyle a portfolio career offers. The creative practice modules gave me unusual ways to create diverse movement, which been a massive help in the creative processes of the projects I have been involved with so far.
Finally, completing the dissertation module gave me a full understanding of all the aspects that go into creating a performance, including budgeting, and I learned a lot about the importance of collaborating with others.
