Loving my course so far. Sometimes I feel like I’m paying an awful lot to only be there 8 hours a week compared to my friends paying the same for 30+ hours of contact time.
The teachers on my course seem really passionate and some of them are absolutely amazing at what they do. As you’d expect there are some I don’t get on with as well - mostly because their lecturing style just doesn’t suit me. Some modules are not what I’d hoped but again - it’s what you expect.
Overall, the course is pretty intense in terms of independent work and readings etc, but I’d say that’s what any degree in this area is like.
*This is only a review of first year!*
I'd say great if you're really interested in speech therapy and the science of language. It's definitely not a course for creative people as content can be quite dry.
The amount of contact time v independent study is ridiculous (and typical of an Arts and Humanities degree) which is a big reason I would not say the degree is worth £9000 a year.
Low contact hours (9 this semester, 11 last) but due to the fact you rely on group rehearsals so much you couldn't really do much more! Teaching is great, you get a good tech training too and it's not all about the acting which I like. Felt like I've learnt more on the theatre side of the course then the English though, although you do get good feedback
