Teaching staff are by the courses biggest strengths. Especially Gordon brown, Finlay Pearson and Ryan locke, they are the figureheads in my opinion.

Computer Arts, BA Hons

If you want to study art here, just spare your money and time and get some good online courses, you will learn just as much, since lecturers don't go farther than teaching the basics of any software here. The majority of learning is always on you and the feedback is extremely lacking. You will see huge posters about taking care of your mental health plastered along the halls because they are at the point they expect you to feel depressed during the time here. No one can manage their time and feedback lacking is always blamed on lack of time overall, even though they have months to prepare and review their schedules. You will have to deal with academic researchers who never had to apply to a game career in their life and game designers who wish to enslave you to create bizarre and boring game concepts which you’ll never ever be able to display in your portfolio because they’re so awkward, even for student projects. And yes, the above is the art course. Stay away, trust me on this.

Massive waste of time. Catered almost entirely to game design students. Whole units will be spent as slaves to make THEIR units feasible, because they don't have the talent to actually do anything on their own. And then, to make up for that, you'll have big personal projects where you'll be lucky to get 1 minute of feedback a week because the tutors are too busy gabbing away with the students they're "pally" with and never bother to circulate until it's too late and they "promise they'll get to everyone next time". They won't.
