Lloyd Macey, BA Perfformio 2017

I’m very proud to have studied the BA Perfformio course at UWTSD – it gave me the opportunity to grow and develop as a performer and to find my own voice.

I don’t think I would ever have gone for the X Factor audition if I hadn’t have done this course. I’d had experience of singing before but the course gave me the confidence and it taught me so much about myself. It taught me how to channel my nerves... to think I can sing in front of millions of people every weekend... two years ago, I would never have been able to do it. So no way, I would never have done the X Factor if it hadn’t been for all the hard work and effort that the lecturers invested in students and this course.

We were encouraged to explore all aspects of performance before deciding what we want to focus on – we were given so many different experiences. We also worked with a huge range of professional performers and directors from the world of theatre and television throughout the duration of the course – people who have seen our progress and witnessed our development.

I don’t think I would have had the courage and self-belief to audition for The X Factor if it hadn’t been for all the wonderful opportunities and experiences I received during my time on the course
