"I had the most amazing three years at Bath Spa, and if I could, I would most definitely go back and do it all again!"
How did the course support your steps into the industry?
The acting course at Bath Spa doesn't hide the fact that the industry is incredibly hard. I believe this is where the course differs from other actor training.
The course gives you the building blocks to allow you to create your own work, a platform that can springboard you straight into the industry. Opportunities to perform, such as in the Bath Fringe and performing to the general public, allowed me to experience first-hand what life outside the University walls is truly like.
The support network is huge, and the course is always there to help you think about the next steps, creating contacts that will set you up with work straight out of your degree.
"I am most proud of..."
I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to take my final year performance to Taiwan, and perform as part of the TNUA festival at Taipei University. To be able to say I have performed in an international festival is truly amazing, and I am proud of the hard work and dedication I put into the performance to allow me to be given that opportunity.
"The best thing about the course was... "
The Acting course at Bath Spa University gives you the opportunity to explore every avenue within the arts, allowing you to truly achieve your dreams. The tutors that you work with are second to none; their enthusiasm and knowledge is inspiring and they really are there for you every step of the way.

Bath Spa is a beautiful, friendly and extremely welcoming University. There is no limit to what you can achieve; if there is something you want to do, Bath Spa will do everything they can to make that dream a reality.
