Illustration Animation, BA Hons
Kingston University did not grant any refund to me when I found out their classes are only 2 days a week and house facilities are so poor that to deal with drainage, I had to resort to measures myself especially during the lockdown with zero access to any tools. My mental health crashed during the 4 months I was indoors and the university did not compensate a penny to me despite asking nicely a hundred times since during the time, my father also lost his job. I’m no millionaire, Kingston University. Besides the one instructor I had, Richard, everyone else was way below subpar in communication which is why when I asked for a refund of at least 50%, they said I had passed my deadline for asking for a refund. This university only takes your money and doesn’t give you any quick response. They asked me to produce industry-level standard from projects when they should have mentioned that prior to accepting my enrollment. This university is nothing but a scam to those seeking placement.
I did a BA honours in Graphic Design and I would not recommend this university at all. The tutors obviously have favourites and unless you are one of them or unless you are caucasian you are very likely to receive a low final grade, even if your work is exceptional. How they managed to get away with this is beyond me but lucky you find work based on your portfolio and not your grade for graphic design. The building and facilities are very outdated, and there is hardly ever any space in the studio to work, even if there is it is very crammed and noisy and awkward. There are hardly any lectured for this course, you go in maybe once a week to see your tutor and all they give you is advice. They do not teach you any new skills, they expect you to already know it all. So basically you are paying 9k a year for opinion on your work.
Graphic Design, BA Hons
Fantastic course offering a completely fascinating way of studying Graphic Design. We really get our money's worth out of the tutors and teaching as they are always around and know us all individually.
