              I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to better their performance skills and develop some business knowledge. The studios and equipment are amazing, and I’ve really enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to use them

              I have gained so many skills from my course – mainly confidence, teamwork, and professionalism. I know I am ready for the dance industry with all the outstanding training I have had.

              I chose UCW because they offered great work experience opportunities. Learning character design and making prosthetic pieces helped me to develop a smooth transition into the industry where I now work.

              When I started at UCW I never thought I'd progress as much as I have. I believe the support from the lecturers and their skills have been able to push me to be where I am now.
