Katyana Malcolm, BA Acting Student, Year 3
“The great thing about the acting course at UWTSD is the range of modules available; from classical Shakespeare to absurd and experimental theatre.
“As part of the course, we receive a wide range of in-depth training from specialists in those areas. The tutors are always willing to chat, however, independent learning is also valued. I would encourage you to invest time in making friends with your fellow students on your course. It is important to support each other in the work that you do, and to encourage each other in your endeavours, both in and out of the lectures.
"Carmarthen itself is a lovely place to live, and so get involved in the town, volunteer, explore and learn. I am looking forward to working with professionals next year and exploring the depths of my abilities through the lessons I have learned over the past two years.”
Jordan Nasser, BA Acting Student, Year 3
“I chose to go to the University of Wales Trinity Saint David because of the homely atmosphere; being a smaller campus makes it easier to make friends inside and outside the course.
“Then there’s the quality and content of the BA Acting degree with its range of different modules that are suited to the industry today. Support has always been offered by the tutors on my course, which creates a very friendly atmosphere and builds a good relationship between the students and lecturers.
"The degree also offers many opportunities to get involved in a lot of creative projects within the university and has opened doors through me meeting contacts who have got me involved in other projects outside the university for work experience, setting me up for after the degree.
"Going forward into my third year, I really look forward to working with directors and other industry professionals and putting the things that I have learned throughout the degree, and personal aims built over the degree, to good use.”
Ahne Hovdhaugen, from Norway
"I am very pleased with both my course (BA Acting) and Carmarthen as a campus and as a town.
"The course is very well laid out, and the lecturers are amazing! Being taught by industry professionals is priceless!
"I like that the course is very practical, but also still values written work as a part of the assessment. I feel very 'seen' both by my lecturers and by the University as a whole. Everyone is super lovely and helpful, and I don’t regret applying for this University at all!
"Carmarthen as a town is very safe, welcoming, and not too big for someone who is anxious about moving abroad or away from home. Everything you need is in walking distance, but the taxi drivers are also super lovely if you ever need a taxi ride!"
