1 Design studies review at Goldsmiths, University of London
Design, BA Hons
The course has some really great tutors and a different take on what design is. There is a great studio culture of working around other students and learning from each other. Tutors push you to think originally and do things that haven't been done before. However they are so focused on originality that it almost feels like a fine arts degree at times - the concept is everything and that means there is little time spent on technical skills or linking our wacky ideas to real-world design needs and careers. Many students felt lost on graduation, knowing little about how to survive in the design world 'out there' as opposed to the little bubble we spent 3 years in that promotes a very specific style of thinking about design that cuts out most work that has a potential for making a living.
