Lucy CounsellGraduate“I’ve just graduated from Musical Theatre Performance and I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made auditioning for this course. This course provides a multitude of opportunities that are primarily performance based which is ideal for people seeking performance-related routes. The teachers on this course I found were not only extremely knowledgeable of their chosen subject, but of the industry in its entirety plus they are caring of each individual and certainly gave up huge amounts of their time to help people in whatever way they could. The course leader, Andrew Wright, leads by example. I am most grateful for his guidance because there could have been many times whereby I could have crumbled from the pressure of being in our final year but Andrew often knew how to help us get over these hurdles and give us an indication on how to continue on a path that was in the right direction for us. I could not have completed my time at University in a better light, being on such a close-knit, driven and passionate course made me always aim to be the best version of myself.”
