The staff and facilities are incredible. There is such opportunity in this department with the amount of and quality of space for student projects both personal and course based. It feels like a big happy family, and there is even a mentoring system in place that takes the structure of a family - in freshers week the second years 'adopt' the first years into little families. The third years are the grandparents and each new year group brings a new generation into what is now decades of family tree. Somewhere I have great great great great x10 drama grandparents!
All staff want to help and assist. They are there for you 24/5 (weekends are for you) and can't help but fall in love with the buildings made just for Drama Students. The connection first years can create with second and third years is unlike any other subject (bar music) and that is fantastic when the course requires you to be up close and personal with everyone.
