At first it may look as a barrier but later on you’ll see it as a good thing for the significant amount of opportunities you will have to put your knowledge into the scene in the most authentic way.
For the experience of other students I had, I can say that all of them coincide in seeing this as something very positive that made them improve faster than they thought.
