UWE Bristol will be fully opening its campus for September with necessary health and safety protocols in place. Students are urged to get vaccinated before arrival, however, there are opportunuties to get vaccinated after the start of the term as well, there will be regular COVID testing, as well as a face mask policy.
After changing to this course I've found that its a pretty decent course however the teaching quality isn't as high as expected. There tends to be a lot of confusion in the small lectures we have and a lot of miscommunication.
I think the lecturers were very dedicated to their craft as most were successful illustrators outside the university. However because of this it meant it was hard to get a hold of them when it came to needing extra help. I think the course was quite unorganised and there was a good four weeks where we didnt have any university and there was no real reason for it.
Feel like I had a better experience at UWE compared to what I've heard of UOB. My tutor was reliable and helpful, and the course content was kept interesting. The Arnofini is a great place to meet other artists and designers and get inspired. Final year was tough but I think everyone feels that way at uni.
Sick course, been very happy with it. Lots of work but I’ve still found time to go out a fair bit, go on trips and do loads of society stuff. Just need to strike a good balance, there’s no reason why you can’t get a first in pretty much everything and still go out a lot and have a good time.
