Isabella currently studies BSc (Hons) Theatre, Television and Performance.
What were you doing before coming to Wrexham Glyndwr University?
I was at sixth form completing my A-levels.
What attracted you to Wrexham Glyndwr University?
I was ultimately attracted to the course that I am on and its mix between theory and practical. I also like Wrexham as a student town - It's not too big but has everything you need.
What’s the atmosphere like around campus?
It has a very positive feel, there's always students around hanging around the campus. I also feel very safe here.
What do you enjoy most about your course?
How there is a mix between practical and theoretical learning. I've improved in my written work considerably.
What do you hope to do when you graduate?
I would either like to apply for a masters or become part of a theatre company.
What has the support been like?
I always say that Glyndwr is like my second family and my tutor is like my “uni mum”. She is always looking out for me and will always offer support both inside and outside of my education.
How do you think you have benefited from studying at Wrexham Glyndwr University?
From living in Wrexham, I have learned to appreciate the Welsh culture from both exploring Wales itself and becoming friends with those who are Welsh. The course has helped me explore different career options that I wouldn't have necessarily looked into and has sparked an interest in other areas of theatre.
If you were to sum up your experience at Wrexham Glyndwr University in one word what would it be and why?
Enlightening, because I have learned so much both inside and outside my degree. I have learned what it means to be independent and I have learned what true friends are.
Isabella is also a WGU Insider so will be popping up on social media throughout the year giving you an insight into her Glyndwr experience.
