“When people hear ‘performing arts’ they usually think ‘dance and drama’ but that’s not the case on this course. Here you get the whole spectrum including design, masks, puppets, physical theatre and circus skills. Being able to explore these different disciplines is what drew me here and it has been amazing.

The physical theatre module has been the best so far. My background is in this area so I was in my element because it allowed me to show what I’m capable of doing. I even enjoyed the viva after my performance when I was able to explain the piece.

I have also got a lot from working with people from musical theatre, while collaborating with different disciplines from across the department has been a great experience. This is a really diverse course and next year I am doing a prosthetics make up module which means once I graduate I can go into a wide variety of areas.

The support I’ve received from my tutors has been fantastic. I was pretty ill at the start of the course but they have been so accommodating. Being far from home and then being ill was hard, but having support from friends and staff has been amazing.

I didn’t think I’d get support as university is usually about being independent, so it was a big relief to get that help. It has made my experience so much better than I ever expected.”
