Costume with Textiles, BA Hons

By member420266 On 4th December 15

Not only are the Tutors and students on the course fantastic to be around the facilities available are Fantastic. not only is it the only costume course that offers textiles it's a close Nick course with only 50 students in first year. with trips available across this year's such as London and New York the fact that the course offers placement year is certainly something that Drew me to it.

Fashion Design with Marketing and Production, BA Hons

By Doritos On 3rd June 19

The course is more expensive than others, i spend more time working out finance options during the year. Tutors have their favourite students and focus on them and leave everyone else behind. I didn't have a personal tutor at all. No structured to the course no organised classes, tutors have avoided to reply to emails, tutors also avoid seeing students in person aswell, most tutors are unorganised. I will say that the course leader was trying to put things in place but did not work in her favour. The course leader is the only tutor trying to balance everything out and the other tutors are not helping her. There has been no guidance towards our career especially being a specialist course we need that extra guidance to understand what is required for the industry.

Illustration, BA Hons

By member739169 On 9th June 19

Before I’d even started this course, when I’d seen it advertised online it said it included a placement test which would include lots of help and guidance through the process as well as talks on it, it also said that we would be eligible for the adobe associate certificate which they described it as being beneficial to people in the creative industries and that it makes you “stand out” because you are proficient in all the software. The whole two years I’ve been on this course we’ve only had a few digital workshops which have consisted of basic things, not really being taught what we need to know like how to illustrate a character in photoshop, what people are looking for and potential employees etc ... not even being taught how to make a website which, in textiles and photography they have been show. For people who want to freelance how can they do this if they’re not being taught how? It feels like I’m back at college on this course, the tutors don’t really teach. Would not recommen

Overall it's alright but most of the time its self studying to learn and discover, the lectures are where you learn the most compared to other lessons.
