I have looked at everything, the rankings, areas, courses... and I still cannot decide. I want to study Drama/ Theatre and Performance and would like to take a placement year. Surrey has a great reputation but I do prefer the course at Essex, however I fear I am giving up a great opportunity by not going to Surrey? Any advice?

go with Essex if you prefer the course. higher ranked unis are generally better-targeted by employers, but that doesn't really apply to Drama/Theatre (you're not going to get headhunted by the Big 4 accountancy firms) so there will be no particular benefit of Surrey, although I hope you've visited Essex uni....

Thank you, yeah I visited them both on applicant days and preferred Surrey University as a whole but didn't mind Essex. It's just I prefer the course there.

Are you allergic to orange faces? If so, Essex is not for you.

Yo.

I'm currently on the Theatre and Performance programme at Surrey. If have any questions or want to chat through anything regarding the course / placement before making your choice, feel free to send me a message or reply here.

I wish you all the best whatever decision you make .
Louis.
