Drama and Theatre Arts, BA Hons FullTime

The undergraduate course I did was a nerve wrecking experience. My mental health spiralled down, I had no help from my fellow students, or personal tutor who literally saw me cry at a 1:1 and did nothing. Job prospects are close to none and you have to work really hard to find any information about careers. The tutors don't talk about careers at all and it seems impossible to get a job in theatre after. It's my person experience but I would definitely reconsider if you are thinking of applying to this course. read more
