Had a passion for graphic design all throughout high school that carried on to sixth form. I found the jump massive considering I did not complete a foundation course prior to starting my first head at Hallam. But overall you meet some amazing people (inc tutors) and really get to explore your own style of designing.

I transferred universities from Derby to Sheffield and it was the best decision I ever made. The tutors are really supportive, you can have a quiet discussion with any of them if you are stuck or unsure. There is the option to go in on a free day and ask the tutors how to do things in any of the adobe packages and they will teach you how to do it. There are plenty of opportunities to try different media's to work with, it is mainly digital but we've also done print making, risograph, 3D models and animation. It is as equally fun as it is challenging, it's been hard work but it's been worth it. Anything that's been a problem or something the students have discussed that they want changing for the following term they've done their best to change it. Your voice is heard, which is refreshing. We've had the chance to visit professionals and ask them questions about working in the industry. So far I'm in my 2nd year and it's been great.

The course and tutors are great just a shame the university doesn’t give the course enough funding as we have to pay for all software ourselves and there’s no funding for transport for national competitions which results in the completions getting cancelled.

AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL! STAY AWAY - What a waste of £9000. I honestly felt like I had taken 2 steps back into GCSE Art and Design. They completely waste your time and have no idea on how to structure a course.

Some aspects of the course are creatively challenging, motivating you to try your best. Yet some parts of the course feel tedious and useless at times. Curated by lectures and when designers give workshops to students are very insightful and enjoyable. Tutors are friendly and approachable as well.

First year was a bit mixed mached as there's 120 students on the course however tutors are excellent and always there if you need help or support. Don't have a personal tutor as such which I feel is a down fall to the couse.

I enjoyed and thought what was on offer was good. Being slightly generous with the rating because there was a large amount of time where I didn't have time in the course as the University (and others) went on strike. That's an issue with the higher ups and not the art department though.
