I am loving my course in new media design, there are opportunities to really explore your own style and incorporate a massive amount of different techniques and ideas. The briefs are inspiring and the tutors are really supportive.
I do plan to a 3rd year either at MMU or Salford, but if I decided against this then the course I am on, is definitely geared towards finding work in my chosen industry and encourages work placements especially in the 2nd year. I find the tutors have a lot of sound advice as to helping my career and go out of their way to make meetings etc possible.
The course is as outlined, I would just say to students that the 2 years goes really fast, so do all the work and start on the portfolio straight away
I am a single mum so don't get much time in the union, but I have been there before the odd gig at manchester academy, as it is just next door and have also been to a few clubs nights there too. I don't now who does what but always have a very cheap fun night when I do venture there.
I live at home!
All facilities are excellent at MMU, not very sporty myself but I do know there is plenty to do if you are. I am very much into music and art and the university as well as the manchester scene is awesome!
I do live in a manchester student area, Hulme and have been here for the last 12yrs. I would say it suits an adventurous, arty person. It is very cool with a great sense of community and is so close to town for the social butterflies.
Yes there are loads of clubs and societies of every conceivable type. I joined the drama society as I wanted to get involved in stage work and also poster/flyer design. It has been great fun, but there are groups for musicians, artists, dancers, sporty types, comic book fans to mention a few
the manchester college is great. very good student services and all staff are really kind and helpful on my course. I havent started at uni yet but from what i have witnessed and heard of the course i am starting in september, it is fantastic, has a great atmosphere and very professional!
yes, if i am lucky after finishing my degree, hopefully i will get an agent and get auditions or work in theatres which would be a fantastic opportunity. as a back up plan, i would like to do a teaching post grad, specialising in either performing arts/drama or French. i would like to do this teaching course in salford university.
during my course at the arden school of theatre i will be doing, we will do performances both in manchester and london and the drama school will invite agents along for tv, film, radio and theatre.
the library is accessable for essays, dissertatons etc. teachers explain things properly to the students helping with the better performance.
