At interviews of this course I was told to bring a portfolio of art work and that any knowledge of computer software was liked but not needed. To be completely honest this was true. A lot of the course in first year involved designing and sketching and research, as you would find in a portfolio, and any projects with software some people like myself would be unfamiliar with was 100% guided and helped with. I was taught a great new skill with tutorials on several different software programmes like Maya, Adobe and RoadKill and really took something away from just one year. The help was great and the work was always new and interesting, it's something I would suggest for any starting 3d animator or modeller, but as mentioned, a good understanding of basic at is very useful to help you along too.

This university is great for the psychology degree, possibly not because it's a high end university but because the tutors are very informative and are there whenever help is needed. I also really enjoy my time here, mainly because they have choices of doing 4 out of 8 assignments, so if you mess up on the first two, you still have options of passing. Some of my friends also live there and say the student life is decent, but they tend to have more house parties than going out all the time.

The Applied Drama course is perfect for those who want to explore the range of careers that the performance industry has to offer other than becoming an actor. The lectures are amazing and professional and have come from different areas of drama, you're being taught from people who have experience in their chosen industries. There are so many opportunities for students to complete work experience with companies around Swansea as well as the ability to work with guest lecturers. There is also the opportunity to study abroad which is an amazing experience.

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.
