Would not recommend this course whatsoever, it truly is poor and leaves me upset every week thinking about it. Don't get me wrong the lecturers can be nice but the way the course is run is worrying. It feels a very unrealistic experience in all parameters from project types to marking. The dropout rate for the current final year is verging on 50% (There were 50 people in the first month)... now there are 25.
Visual Communication is about exploring a variety of creative fields and ideas/ theories to best communicate messages, both experimental and commercial. All staff are very responsive and connected with their students, all offer plenty of experience in fields of digital, illustration, animation, web design, packaging, print making, book binding to name a few.
Course offers and notifies their students regularly with plenty of opportunities through design competitions, external clients, talks, events and collaborations. It was here I was given a Work Placement at ITV through one of the many industry guest lecturers visiting. Plenty of preparation for industry but as a second year it is still unclear as to the type of jobs I may find myself doing after the course.
I am so surprise there are tutors with teaching experience in Royal College of Art and how patient they are. Of course every tutor's teaching level is quite high and we can easily book an personal tutorial anytime we want. I think it is really helpful for undergraduate student.
Despite paying £9000 a year for a basically print based course, we were expected to pay for all printing and paper costing hundreds. Lack of technical classes, meant I was left to learn individually online or in books. Printers were routinely broken however technicians were always helpful and worked hard resolves these issues within there power.
