Moving from undergraduate to postgraduate study at York for my MA was somehow even more stressful than moving away from home for the first time. At least when I moved for my BA, I had known a few people from my school who’d be going to university with me. When I moved to York, I … Continue reading Moving from undergraduate to postgraduate study
Hi there, I’m Sophie, a third-year student on the Theatre: Writing Directing and Performance course here at York! A question I asked of all the universities I considered was how they balance practical work and theory. One of the things I love the most about the structure of the course here at York is the way it builds and to become more independent and allow you more creative freedom as you progress and begin to specialise in your preferred areas. The Pre-1900s module in third is one of the most anticipated parts of the course and I’m super lucky to have opportunity to share with you my ‘week in the life’ post about my experience in production week as a co-director!
Hello! I’m Beth, a 2nd-Year Interactive Media student here at the University of York.

Hi! I’m Ollie and I’m a first year Film and TV Production student here at York. I thought it would be useful to talk about my personal experience starting this course so that you can gain an insight into it. The TFTI department has been so welcoming over the past term, from the TFTI building tour to the welcome drinks reception. As someone with anxiety, I was nervous about joining such an interactive, hands-on department but I’m so glad I did and I’d love to share that experience with you all! In my blog, I mention one of my first assessments and the process of developing my script for it. I touch on how the work we do in lectures and seminars has supported my individual studies. University is very different from high school but it’s such a fun and engaging new experience – I hope you’re excited! 🙂
I’m George and I study Business of the Creative Industries at York. I love studying this degree at York because it fully equips you with everything you would need to know if you are looking for a degree in the creative industries, from film/tv to theatre to live events…

Interactive Media student Ella tells us about her work placement as a Creative Campaigns and Production Intern at The Walt Disney Company. Why did you decide to do a placement?

My name is Stevie and I am a Third year Theatre student at the University of York. It is an absolute joy to write about this University and my course, in addition to what I believe makes it so unique in comparison to other institutions. In my blog I am going to be discussing a recent module I completed in the first term of Third year and the experiences I personally had with it. ‘Pre-1900s’ is a core module of your Third year within the Theatre degree, and is an incredibly exciting challenge to undertake working with your peers to create some truly impressive theatre. A key part of University, for me, is falling in love with your degree and reminding yourself why you chose to pursue the subject you did. With the Pre-1900s module it was absolutely a perfect reminder of why I particularly love Theatre and immersing myself in it on a daily basis.
