      The downside

      Other courses, specifically digital photography, 1 visiting lecturer all year scheduled to be in whilst we were due to be in another lecture. Being so focused on canon equipment and mac computers, completely biased and if you are a nikon/windows user, you do feel a massive pressure to convert which is not financially possible in most cases. The projects on photography are so specific and similar and uninsping, I honestly have bearly learnt anything in the whole year, which i am not impressed at, 3600 odd a year for this? is just not worth it. In the the 3rd term (10 weeks) I was timetabled for less than 25 days in uni, with only one project for the whole term. Every project i've been given i've been told to 'keep it simple, stupid (K.I.S.S), meaning my creativity is constantly shot down and forced to be as basic as possible, the projects are all very similar and get boring and tedious. One of the two photography lecturers is the worst teacher i have ever had, every single question someone asks him, he either makes a sarcastic comment, doesn't answer ('i've already answered this question in the brief' when you are asking the question because you don't understand what he's written) or tells you to find out yourself ('i'm not going to spoon-feed you' when asking a specific question about submission, the difference between a pass and a fail), which is not particularly helpful or inspiring. I have currently lost all passion for my subject by constantly being squashed down to fit into these simple ideas in strict breifs.

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.

More on what university league tables really tell you.

This institution doesn’t feature in any of the three main league tables, most likely because it’s small or specialist and there isn’t enough data to create a ranking. In a small number of cases some universities have opted out appearing in certain league tables.
