We could have more printers, as the queues are sometimes frustrating. The opening times could be longer - I often want to stay in past 7pm, especially in the library.×

I was in Harvard which was really nice. Being in a house with four other people with everyone having your own ensuite. There was a connivence store down the road and it was only a 20minute walk to town and the university. We also had a cleaner who came during the week. The houses were modern and clean. The only bad things i think was the fact the accommodations did not have their own hoovers. You had to ask the cleaners, and during my stay other students began hiding the hoovers meaning there were no more to give to everyone. Also the internet was famous for not being able to support the 5 laptops in the house and constantly would go down.×

Teaching time in year 1 is 5 days a week, year 2 is about 2/3 days but you are expected to work 5 days a week every week. Coursework is the way you are marked and within this an essay alongside samples, practical work and book work is essential. Tutorials are really essential and helpful and we have group and indivdual tutorials about once a fortnight.×

As I live quite far from the university and it is in the countryside, coming from a big city myself I was surprised at the high cost of travel and slightly higher cost of living in the south×

Managing money is easy. I usually set out for a budget a month, and then I separate it into sections: for food, drinks out, cinema, theatre, concerts, travel. And I try to stick to it as much as possible. There are lots of opportunities for part-time jobs, as the university is situated in the centre of the town. This also means that the job would be close to where the courses take place. There are additional course costs, but this is quite obvious. Photography is not a cheap subject to study. Money for printing images and materials is required. Good value food can be found everywhere near the university, there are lots of shops nearby. On the way to halls of residence you can also find shops, so food is easy to procure and cook when you get in.×

illustration BA - A LOT of studio time with about 8 hours a week (minimum) of activity-esque teaching and a lecture once a week. Other than that the tutors are wandering around the studio usually. - the content is very much down to what you do with it, every project has a good research basis and interesting topic, but you have to delve into them yourself and be creative. I personally loved every project because i found interest and challenge in all of them. - The academic writing side of the course is very basic/dumbed down. I found this very annoying at first but I took it as something that only needed a small bit of my attention. Otherwise you are required to do a lot of development work research towards your final ideas. - at the end of every week you have a group crit with a tutor some of your peers, you have 1 individual tutorial with a tutor per unit but you can ask for more. After every unit has been marked you then have a session to discuss how it went with a tutor. - Very good, especially for print-making.×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
