12 Design studies reviews at University of Hertfordshire
Fashion, BA Hons
Annie who wasn’t a teacher on a full time contract would stay late and help over until 8pm on many occasions. Tutors were helpful but didn’t always got the extra mile. The technicians were always happy to help and stay late and were a huge help to me personally.
Illustration, BA Hons
Wonderful course, get taught so much and the tutors really help to teach students how to move forwards as professional illustrators after university. Lots of great briefs including one day projects and stuff like making Christmas cards to sell in the art shop. The facilities are wonderful, including access to printmaking and sculpture as well as a risograph machine which we're very lucky to have!
Interior Architecture And Design, BA Hons
Job prospects were okay because of the course nature. The university didn't help that much in terms of applying for jobs. They helped with preparation for interviews though
Model Design (Model Effects), BA Hons
Great course for industry knowledge however you will get more from students and technicians than tutors. Not sure if they are hard to find or really busy. Spent long hours in the studio over 8 week projects and didn't see much. Course is completely self funded, wasn't mentioned how expensive it world be at interviews. Great for contacts though.
Product Design, BA Hons
Warning this review may seem harsh, but you need to know: 1st year is a total waste, dumbed-down content to tailor to students who frankly dont want to be there. Literally 1k let alone 7 or 9k is an insane price for this year, you learn next to nothing imo. 2nd year could easily replace the 1st year, you actually do real work. Teaching is 'counselling' NOT SKILL TRAINING, dont expect to be taught how to draw, use Photoshop, learn graphic design/presentation or even rendering in CAD. In fairness the CAD teaching (non rendering) is ok, but pay online instead = much better value for money. 3rd year = You come up with a project and go do it. You get 'counselling' style advice, but still little to no raw skill training. Dont trust my review though, go look and compare at New Designers London to see for yourself. (baring in mind they are trying to sell the course to you there.) Just remember £9k a year UK/EU! 11k for International students!! you have been warned.
