13 Cinematics & photography reviews at Solent University, Southampton


Student Review: 1.6 /5

Photography, BA Hons

By member755890 On 5th April 21

Studied here for the first year this year and was incredibly disappointed. Teaching hours are very lacking, usually around or below 10 hours per week. Some timetabled classes are actually just "watch a video on youtube" but are still listed as class hours, when there is classes the majority of the time the tutor will just talk about pictures from google images for the entire session (very little practical teaching) and then most classes finishes 15+ minutes early. Teaching staff were nice enough, no problems but they didn't explain what we were actually supposed to be doing and it wasn't clear what was expected. Towards the end of every semester the teaching gets even worse, with all of the actual classes being replaced with 10 minute drop in sessions for the second half of the two semesters (teaching for the year finishes in March). No university community at all and societies are nonexistent so it's a pretty lonely place to study unless you're a people person, wouldn't recommend.

Animation, BA Hons

By member1142997 On 28th October 19

I am currently studying animation in my final year of university and never before have I been this disappointed in life. Absolute joke of a course, massive money trap, course team pretend to care when all they care about is getting their fat paycheck. Presently I just have 1 single lecture each week, full time yeah right. You won't get taught anything on this course. Course leader keeps deflecting feedback and acts unprofessionally. Should have gone to Bournemouth.

First year was good. Second year has been a shambles of wrong information and timetables being messed up, rooms changed last minute. Tutors rarely answer emails. And when they can be bothered they will help. Or so they think. You are very much left alone in this course
