Jake Sawyers

Graduated 2016

“Since graduating from UWTSD in 2016 with a First-Class BA (Hons) in Acting, I have been working consistently in the creative industry.”

“I now live and work in Cardiff as a self-employed actor. This is thanks to the connections and skills I developed during my time at UWTSD. When choosing a place to study my priorities were the quality of the course and the amount of teaching hours. UWTSD definitely met my expectations. The BA Acting course is very practical and provides you with skills you can actually use in the world of performance.

As a registered blind student, having a strong relationship and open dialogue with lecturers was essential. During my time at UWTSD, I felt like I was treated as an individual and not just seen as a number. I had plenty of contact and support with all of the staff, and my needs were always a priority. Since graduating, I have worked with companies such as UCAN Productions, Yellow Brick and Elbow Room Theatre Company. I am also a content creator for BBC Cymru.”
