I enjoyed the whole course, in particular the final year due the versatility of the modules. In Staging the Dance I had the opportunity to choreograph my own piece with my own dancers, which I found both challenging and beneficial.
I also found the modules where I went on placement really rewarding as I want to go into teaching. Completing these modules gave me experience and knowledge around the subject area on a first hand basis.

I had to develop skills whilst at University to ensure my work was done to a high standard. I still use these skills every day, especially when teaching as I have to plan every lesson, manage my time and also ensure my work is completed for my PGCE.”
