I’m two years into my graphic design course at WSA and I can sadly say it’s the biggest mistake I’ve ever made and paid for. Where do I begin? Paying for everything eg trips, stationery (glue , scissors printing etc), the extremely rude and negative staff and lecturers, being patronised and made to feel like a school student, the “lecturers” being late, the extremely useless and unrelated workshops or the tiny amount we’re in out of the year. I am so disappointed and let down how it has been nothing like I was told it would be at the first open day. Fast forward me too this time next year when I’m done with the place. Did I say it’s not worth a penny out of the £9250? P.S only in one day a week at the moment - tell me what I’m paying for! Disgraceful
Teaching not great. all lectures should be taken away and fully qualified on some sort of course nation wide that teaches them how to teach properly to students at a level or above teaching standards, not standards below primary school level.
More reliable and accessible course content is needed. And the exams to be written off written course content, not stuff that might or might not have been mentioned verbally.
