Joshua with wings

Student of the week: Joshua Lowes – BA Drama

Big. Fun. Loveable.

Tell us about your time at QMUL. What have been your highlights?

Highlights have included: creating a dress out of Greggs career bags in Making Theatre, perfuming as sex therapist Dr Dodo in Performance Composition, and working/creating alongside a talented group of people (both staff and colleagues).

How has your course at Queen Mary helped you to progress into the world outside? What’s next?

It has allowed myself to become an independent artist, exposing me to new arts and ways of creating. Hopefully my research into the world of “drama” continues in time and my love for the subject only grows, I would love to do my Masters and PhD if at all possible. Or even gain a following in my art and work.

Aside from course content what have been your favourite elements of the experience of studying here as a whole?

QMBL Swim, I started off as a Fresher, became Social Sec, and finally president in my final year. I have made many friends in not just drama but other fields of study.
