Work out a weekly budget within your student loan and religiously stick to it. Eg, if your budget is 25 a week, withdraw 15 at the beginning of the week and try not to spend it all, the more money you can save the better. I set up a second (student) bank account when I started and each term moved all my rent money to that account for that term and then didn't touch it, so I didn't have to worry about not having rent each month.One day a week, 6-8 hours, this will help massively and it looks good to employers to have had a job alongside studies as it shows you can organise your time, etc.×

General living costs are fine. The main thing at NUA is the printing and materials costs because it's an arts university.Report

The graphic design tutors are amazing! They are always in the studio for constant feedback on both uni work and personal work (they love to know what you are doing outside the course). You get lectures and talks the ought the week as well as weekly tutorials and workshops in projects relevant to current projects. You also receive group critiques that allow you to talk to both tutors and fellow students about your work. The course is extremely challenging and certainly not easy going, but it really pushes you to reach your full potential. There is so much variety within the projects you are always learning. The course is mostly graded from portfolio project work that is graded at the end of each term, but there is also an element of contextual studies that is written or presentation based which is graded alongside your portfolio. The facilities are fantastic. High spec printers and fantastic technicians as well as laser cutters, foiling, vinyl and the ability to diversify into 3D workshops. There is sometimes a problem when it comes to deadline week, but if you are ahead, there is no problem.×

Stayed in halls in my first year which is no longer open, looked in Jan of first year and grabbed the first house we saw which was perfect. We found it by just browsing online×

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.
