Charlotte's story

Bath is a beautiful city and a great place to live. I had an amazing three years living with lifelong friends I made at University. But the highlight for me was working with all the amazing tutors and peers on an incredible course.

I don't think I had one boring moment in three years - from working with our movement teacher, to our all-round talented, amazing director and producer, bringing us tea and biscuits whilst helping us pick a monologue and giving us the best, more accurate advice and guidance, to our comedy teacher, asking us to come into class wearing a red nose and verbally abuse one another, in the most loving way we know how!

Nothing seems to be off-limits because you are working in an incredibly safe environment where you feel comfortable to explore and take risks. I could go on forever to list every highlight of my three years and I feel fortunate to be able to say that and mean it!

"My most recent production, Bleak House, has most definitely been my proudest achievement yet. I felt extremely grateful to be working with David Glass Ensemble on such a vivid project with a team of talented people straight after graduating, it was exciting, scary and so rewarding."

Why did you choose the BA Acting course at Bath Spa?

As soon as I did my audition at Bath Spa I knew it was where I wanted to go. The audition process challenged you in a positive way to highlight who you were and what you could do. Also the surroundings on campus are absolutely beautiful, you would get inspired just driving up to campus!

"The best thing about the course is..."

You have so much choice and freedom to experiment with who you want to be and what you want to do. There is a great variety of learning in the course, from sitcom to voiceovers to a directed play. You have vast opportunities to create your own work and be able to work with people currently in the industry.

"I recommend Bath Spa because..."

The best thing about Bath Spa without a doubt is the tutors. They inspire, motivate, teach, support, enhance and drive you to be the best you can be. The amount of guidance is outstanding and the variety and experience they bring is unmeasurable.

They provide you with all the tools you will need to go into the industry with but it is so much more than that. They make the daunting exciting and the unachievable achievable.

I hate to admit it, but they also seem to know what you want and need better than you do yourself but they teach and guide you to start recognising it, unleashing your potential.
