As an art student doing textiles it is purely practical and have 2 days with tutors, more if we're learning new techniques. The hours are normally 9.30 till 3 but preferably tutors expect you to work till 5.30. The course has a lot of varied amount of projects sometimes working on 3 different ones for one module. They suit both fashion, interior and sometimes work to live briefs. We do practise essays in first year but don't in second year and in third year we do a 6000 word dissertation. The third year is the only one which counts to get us prepared. We have to organise our time and if you don't bother the tutors don't bother about you. The tutor feedback is varied, each tutor has a different opinion and in the end you have to go on your own instinct. The university course is known for print rather than Constructed which is knitting and weaving and Embriodery.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
