Camilla Potter - Drama and Theatre
Course: Drama and Theatre
Year of study: 3rd
Why did you choose to study at Royal Holloway?
I really liked the atmosphere of a campus university and could see myself being happy at Royal Holloway. I also looked closely at league tables for both the university and my course and looked at student forums online.
What do you enjoy most about studying Drama and Theatre?
I enjoy getting to study a wide range of courses within theatre that I wasn't necessarily interested in before. I've also loved being around so many other people with a passion for theatre. I feel comfortable and settled within the department and academically, my confidence has grown significantly over the past three years.
What is your favourite thing about being a student at Royal Holloway?
I love the community feel of Royal Holloway and bumping into my friends when I'm walking around campus. I like that everything is so close and convenient. Overall, I am happy and enjoy my course, I have a lovely group of friends and I've enjoyed getting involved in various societies.
What is the student life like?
Student life is really what you make of it and the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. Egham is full of students so you're always able to meet new people.
What are your future plans and has your degree helped you achieve these?
I plan on going travelling after I graduate and explore my options further. I would like to get into the film industry working as a producer. Royal Holloway has prepared me well and I feel lucky enough to have lots of options both career wise as well as continuing in higher education.
