      Academic Experience

      I really enjoyed the teaching and the time we had to produce work, its incredibly flexible and allows you to leave when you like (BUT staying in is highly recommended to allow proper feedback to keep you on task). The course kept me incredibly interested through out my first year and really did challenge me to help me to improve the work i produce. It is al coursework 3/4 projects a term with a workshop every wednesday which you submit a portfolio of at the end of the term which gets graded, this happens 3 times a year (once a term). You get a feedback session timetabled for you every Friday which allows you to see your classes work and compare your progress to others and the course has loads of specific facilities, with various apple macs and other computers/printers/lazer cutting machines and massive format(size) printers to produce large scale work.

      Beechcroft. It's halls. Like any other halls your experience is down to the people you're with. I loved and hated my time due to the corridor i was put in where i got on far better with people in other corridors than most of the people i was living with. Though it's easy to simply walk over to other corridors. The kitchens are what drove me crazy as we had 12 people sharing two broken ovens and 2 sinks and 1 washing machine. the amount of dirty rotting food that was left in those sinks was horrific. Again, down to who you live with. The caretakers are lovely though and do their job as well as they can without infuriating everyone that lives there. Other than that, it was just a simple place to live, not too dissimilar to a hostel.

      Academic Experience

      the teaching time is great. we go in mon-fri and there is always a member of staff in our studios always willing to help and give feedback and advice. and we receive at least one formal group tutorial/feedback session per week the course is split into 3 terms a year. each term we are given approx 3briefs for creative projects. so it is mostly creative work. although essays and written research work is required. there are no exams though

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.
