I have applied for Drama at both Goldsmiths and Queen Mary. I have been offered a place at both university, but I can't decide between the two.
Can anyone studying on a BA Drama and Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths give me their opinion on the course?
Also, how is the social life at Goldsmiths (student union, societies...)? I don't fancy the area very much, but I know Goldsmiths has a good reputation for the arts and a guy who has studied on a BA Acting at LIPA (he was my acting coach) said it's a good course and it's getting better every year.
I already know the school lacks performance spaces, but I would like to know something more about the course. How is the teaching quality? Do you get any support in looking for work or finding placements within the arts industry? Do you get any support as a student in general?
I am interested in Goldsmiths because the course is half practice and half theory, so it would allow me to explore both performance and analysis, but I woul like to hear from some current students.
Or does it play no part?
