The course is compleately practical, me learn how to design set, Costume and props for theatre and performance. From model making, pattern cutting, cad and sketch up. Skills that we will use on a daily basis as a performance designer. The projects go from designing for conceptual productions, to massive puppetry projects, to a realisation of a design in your third year. I am tottally confident that I will get a job when I graduate in a few months time.

I decided to attend the university of South Wales as their business course was known to be excellent and comes with the added bonus of graduating with a CIPD membership and excellent placement connections.

The teaching takes place in individual classrooms of around 20-40 students therefore the lectures are a lot more interactive rather than a lecturer just talking at you. This also allows them to do more group activities which not only allows you to see other peoples points of view on the subjects but also allows you to get to know the people on your course.

The variety of assessments are also good. There is a mix of essays, reports, self-assessments, presentations, completing a business plan, a recruitment portfolio and conducting mock job interviews. At the beginning of the course the prospect of numerous presentations was off putting however I now feel confident enough to do them which has put me in a good position for when I am expected to do them in the workplace.

The lecturers have generally been very supportive however in the 4 years (including a placement year) there have been the odd lecturer that have offered poor advice leading to me not getting the mark I was hoping for. This however was dealt with well by the university therefore don't let this put you off the course!

The first year of the degree does not seem specific enough to the course but it's just icing you a base for what you're going to be studying. You'll learn tips for how to write a university essay and how to reference. The assignments are normally spread out and you have 2 per module and you complete 6 modules over 2 semesters. Most of the modules help you with management and business side of tourism and then gets more specific to what route you want to go down in years 2 and 3.

A range of different assessment forms are used within the course. There is a large amount of practical teaching practice which gives you experience in teaching a range of difference sports and activities that are delivered in the Welsh curriculum.

Overall the degree was excellent however for my personal goals it lacked enough nutrition modules and focused a lot on sport rather than General health where my interest lies. However thoroughly enjoyed the practical experience gained from the degree in modules such as work placement and health promotion in practice.

The course itself is fairly straight forward, mainly comprising of assignments and in-class tests that are fairly informal but can carry a large percentage of your overall grade. This year I have only one examination which does take the majority of the pressure off as it is Year 1 but also pushes you to achieve more on assignments, presentations and tests. The course is also fairly focused on in-class group presentations and these usually focus on a new product or service you have made/intend to offer so an aspiring entrepreneur would strive on this course, along with those interested in marketing. The lectures are fairly informal and allow you to relax and gain the most out of your studies.

My degree was totally not what I expected. I thought it would be more reading writing workshopping with a bit a theory thrown in. Instead the course is heavily weighted to history, theory, and the writing part takes up only two hours of lectures a week, very disappointing. I understand theory and lit is needed to understand how writers tick and possibly to inspire, but the amount in which we are bombarded with is slightly suffocated.

The course is fab for those looking for a job inside Drama that doesn't include acting. It has a perfect mix of performance and theory so you can study the work you are doing. There are no exams so no pressie but a constant supply of work that needs to be done to certain deadlines, but you are never given more than you can handle! I would suggest it to anyone
