    Hi,
    I've just firmed a conditional offer for the musical theatre and acting for film course, (my predicted grades are higher than the conditions so I'm going to start planning now just in case) and I'm not sure whether I should stay in halls or look for flat mates? Would I be missing out on the experience if i stayed privately and how much would the costs differ between?

    Thank you!!

    I've got a conditional offer for that course too (it's my first choice) at an open day they said that people tend to stay in halls the first year and flats the second year. but I'm equally as lost because i have no idea which halls to choose

    I've accepted my unconditional for this course and for the first year I am going to stay in halls of residence. The Bognor Regis campus is where all the musical theatre stuff happens so it may be better to stay there but the Chi campus is only a bus ride away!!

    Hey!

    If you're not sure which campus is better for you to live on in terms of social activities, you might like to chat to one of our SU officers about what each campus has to offer from a student's point of view! You can find their contact details on their website - http://www.ucsu.org/your-union/your-officers/

    Hi! I'm starting in September but have lived in Chichester for a while, it usually works out a lot cheaper to live in shared accommodation but youre right, most people tend to live in halls for the first year and move into shared houses with friends they make at the end of it. I'm having the same problem though, ive seen the halls and theyre pretty gross and a little pricey, also very small! Good luck!

    I'm currently finishing my first year on MT and Acting for Film and lived on the Bognor campus this year. For me personally I would have rather lived in Chi as we had some lessons at 8am and getting the 40 minute bus before was a hassle. The joint honours classes are mainly in Chi (I think 1 and a half hours a week will be in Bognor next year) and the MT society stuff takes place on the Chi campus too. However Bognor campus is quieter and very close to the beach and I have a few friends that have preferred living further away from our lessons

    Any questions about it I'm happy to answer, just let me know

    Hi! I was just wondering whether there were any 17-year-olds on your course at the start of the year? My birthday isn't until the 9th December and I'm scared that I'm going to miss out on the majority of fresher's week and the social aspect of the first few months haha

    Also, what are the contact hours like for this course? I'm trying to weigh up the differences between here and drama school at the moment because I love this course but I need to work on my dancing A LOT haha, like do you feel as though you get enough dance training?

    I don't know of any 17 year olds on the course, however there was one in my block this year and she just joined in with the flat parties ect. You're 18th will be massive at uni hahaha there are loads of societies and sports clubs that you can join to meet people too!

    So overall you do about 6 hours of dance and 9 hours of acting a week. Then lectures vary between semesters. My dancing was terrible before I came to this uni and I feel this course is really good for those without a lot of previous dancing experience compared to drama schools who usually want you to be a dancer already.
