The content of my course (Access to HE Fashion) is great. It really prepares you for a degree course and ensured that I met the criteria when applying for a degree course. Although tutors weren't very accessible outside of class we did get good feedback from them throughout the year. We are required to do a variety of work. Although most task/projects are very creative we did have written work too.×

We have really interesting tutors and lectures. I remember this one time I was hungover and I still made it to class, and even though I was dying to sleep, I was so mesmerized and inspired by the lecture, I was really proud I chose this uni and this course. We have classes 3 times in a week, so we have flexibility to work alongside the course. I think our course is fairly organized and each term the kind of work we are given is even more challenging and most of all, we are constantly learning even though I hate that we have to learn cultural studies, a subject I hate. We don't have exams but have essays and projects due, our creative skills are also tested as we are taught to view our work not only from a business point of view but also from a design aesthetic, which I think is incredible. Also, the tutors are very helpful and extremely supportive and they make sure you understand what youre lacking in, and what you could have done better but at the same time, they will praise you for a job well done. I'm doing Fashion PR, probably should have mentioned that before, but the Creative Opportunities page does help us a lot, as part of one of our projects was to be a part of London Fashion Week, and both of my internships I got through applying from this page.×

Ual is a very big university with 6 colleges arround london. You can study anything related to art including fashion courses. There is the student union who provideds activities, support and help. They have lots of clubs in sport, art and subject related. The colleges themselves have great support facilities, industry guest speakers, networking events, careers support and advice. Job boards, creative oppertunities. The colleges provide cross course tecnical anf creative workshops. The staff are very helpfull and friendly, they support you in many ways. I'm really happy with my choice.×

The tuition I received was poor. The amount of time each student got to spend with each tutor was abysmal, and I felt like I could have easily taught myself the same amount. Facilities are brilliant, but there is simply not enough space or for example, items available to hire, to supply demand. Although London is a fantastic city to study in, it also has it's downfalls - the universities buildings are so spread out across the city that it is hard to develop and maintain a real 'community' atmosphere, which I never once felt as part of this university. As a result, I think many students remain only on the periphery of the university 'experience'.×

It really depends on how good/bad you are with money and if you work or live on parents income. It is possible to handle money wisely while on the other hand London has many temptations.×

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.
