"It was the audition that made me choose Bath Spa. I got a taster of the course and truly felt that the tutors were passionate about delivering an outstanding course for the students."
Meeting such wonderful people and creating lifelong bonds. I feel as though I gained a second family while at university.
How did the course support your steps into the industry?
In every way possible. Going into the third year was very daunting. However, as time went on you realised how the course had provided you with a strong foundation to enter the industry. From the first year, you're equipped with a range of skills to help you develop yourself as a creative individual.
I learnt that there are always opportunities around you; opportunities to flourish as a performer. For me, this course pushed me to create my own work and gave me the confidence to do so. I truly believe our industry is full of different and exciting ways to develop and showcase your craft; you just have to be open, willing and often your own advocate.
"I would never have come out of university with my own theatre collective without the knowledge I have obtained from this course."
"I am most proud of..."
In my last term at University, myself and two other students wrote, devised and performed our show "Seeds" as part of the Bath Fringe Festival and subsequently formed our own theatre collective, Between Creatives.
This was such an incredible opportunity as we were given the chance to produce a professional show to be seen by our peers and the public. The show was reviewed just like a theatre performance and we also received feedback which led us to move forward in our work.
