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.×

I find it very easy to manage my costs. I shop at several supermarkets in order to minimise my spending on food and my university shop provides materials at a very low cost. I wish I had known at the beginning of my first year just how cheap the university shop was. I think this should definitely be stressed as it saved me heaps of money.×

The su bar is really friendly and has a lot of themed evenings. It's quite relaxed and artsy. There's a great bar opposite the main buildings which has bands and comedians all the time too. In the summer there are loads of outdoor areas to chill out in the sunshine.×

I really like the course I am on (illustration). There are workshops, tutorials and group crits pretty much every week, and there is always an ongoing project. The intensity of the course really depends on how much you put into it. Some students don't put much effort into their work and don't always turn up. It is easy to do this and get away with it, but of course you don't do as well. If you are someone who is good at organizing yourself, then the course is perfect.There are plenty of opportunities to book yourself into extra workshops, e.g. screen printing, etching.×

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.
