'Studying drama at Excelsia means I am able to pursue all my passions both on stage and off. This course allows students to learn both the acting side of theatre, as well as the backstage side. We learn how to create a piece of theatre, be a director or a stage manager, or even be the designer in costume or props. There is a chance to do what they are interested in. Now I really learned a lot and want to try everything and I have learned so much in only a year. The lecturers care so much and are truly willing to help in any way they can.'
