It feels like a large, diverse constantly changing art gallery.Report
facilities, as most of our campus has been given to mid-kent we find it hard to get the space we needReport

Photography course - everything good until third year - marking based on whether tutors like you/your work or not, and is not marked on your skill, very little actually marked with project learning objectives in mind. Dissertation brief expected to be started and finished in the last week of second year, no feedback until you return - feedback given about dissertation limited, very little help thereafter to help you choose your specific subject - only 4, 30 minute tutorials with your given tutor. No work experience.×

The library facilities are very extensive and you can borrow from the other campuses which is great and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The building is set out quite well with a nice bar area but unfortunately the photography department is located on the top two floors; the photographic dark rooms and developing area is great and set out well so very easy to use. Unfortunately again there are very limited clubs/ activites out of studies in fact I don't think there are any! however there is a student union which I think can be very helpful with issues as well as many people within the course and out of the course to be able to talk to about work or money etc. There are many computers throughout the whole university including not only computer rooms but also in areas like the bar which is great!×

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.
