  • The most valuable thing about my VU course was the amazing practical experience I gained during my placement at Malthouse Theatre. I gained confidence to work in the real world, and got some great recommendations, referrals for jobs and connections within the industry.

  • Being able to focus on one course at a time allows students to learn quickly and effectively. I am always surprised at how much it is possible to learn in such a brief period, but this is only possible because of the immersive learning environment.
