What their Students Say

When it came to applying for university, Winchester became my first choice. Not only because the course is amazing, but also the lecturers and students gave me a very welcoming and friendly vibe when I had my interview. Although it was hard since it happened during the pandemic, it was the best interview I had. It was more than an interview, the lecturers gave me a lot of useful singing and acting advice which helped me to improve my skills, and senior students told me about their fabulous time in the university, inside and outside classes.

The course combines practical professionalism and academic study which helps us to know the industry better and offers us multiple choices in future careers. We’ve had multiple guest lecturers from the musical theatre industry giving us diverse views about our future careers. We are also able to set up our social network in theatre from our lecturers, classmates, and friends from societies. I was lucky to be involved in two professional shows outside the university this year, The Producers in Plaza Theatre and Starling Arts 10+ concert in London Cadogan Hall. These great experiences not only happen in the Faculty of Arts, but also in every other course. The University of Winchester is a university that provides current academic study as well as future career advice help which helps us to move forward after a university

BA(Hons) Musical Theatre ; Home country: China

The University campus is very much technologically advanced. I am studying at the West Downs Campus, which has a massive library with computer and printing facilities and a laptop-on-loan facility – this is the best place for me to look for research papers, articles, and books for my study work. Charming Cafes offer delicious pizza, wraps, sandwiches, and many more, to munch between the sessions.

The student Community is strong; we have a student union here and various clubs that support us in growing outside the classroom. The teaching faculty and administrative staff are very supportive. Apart from the regular seminars and workshops, we can get one-on-one guidance for the assignments from the faculties, who are experts in their field. Even to make international students adjust to the new environment, the university offers sessions on “Culture Adjustment and Diversity,” which helped us a lot with social etiquette and gave us insights into the British culture, which I believe is essential when you come to UK and study.
