Georgia Munnion, a second-year student on the BA (Hons) European Theatre Arts (ETA) programme, spent five months at the RESAD (Real Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático) in Madrid. She comments:
“My five months on placement were a focal point of my time at Rose Bruford, introducing me to a variety of new and challenging theatrical training techniques, which I will continue to use for my artistic development. Furthermore, I was given the opportunity to experience working in different cultural surroundings, learn a new language, obtain useful future contacts and grow as an independent individual. It gave me an insight into the opportunities on offer for my future career, in terms of direction and location. The ETA placements provided the final touch of perfection to an incredibly fulfilling programme.”
