Why did you decide to study to be a teacher?
There were several good teachers who made important contributions to my life. So I wanted to become a teacher in the hope of bringing positive changes to others.
Why did you decide to study here at Warwick?
It has the right course and I spoke to those who studied here, and was told it’s an excellent university with a good campus life.
How did you find out about your particular course?
I checked up about Warwick on the Internet and applied for — and was accepted for — a language course. At a pre-departure meeting I saw a Drama and Theatre Education in the HK Warwick Newsletter and so I changed from the previous course. I love the course I’m doing now, which is the perfect one for me.
What do you like most about your course here?
I’m doing a Masters in Drama and Theatre Education and apart from it being an interesting course of a very high standard, the students and tutors are a family who know each other well and mix socially as well as academically. We often have post-workshops social and end of term parties.
What are you planning to do when you finish the course?
My course has strengthened my desire to stay in education specialising in drama.
Would you recommend this course to others?If yes, what would be your advice to them?
Definitely! The course is not prescriptive, so be open-minded to the views of others, and always prepared to change your opinions.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Warwick is an excellent university in a good location with cultural diversity, a range of activities from skydiving to Spanish, and many excursions!
