8 Design studies reviews at University of Brighton


Student Review: 1.4 /5

Graphic Design for Digital Media, BA Hons

By member1167800 On 4th April 22 verified Verified student

£9,250 a year for a “Full-Time” course - as a third year we go in one day a week, have less than 3 hours total contact time and get bombarded with an extortionate amount of work, with inconsistent feedback between students amongst the same class. Get taught along side animation and games design, where the games designers are obviously out of place, and if I was an animation student I would’ve definitely regretted my choice of university (which a few students did and left). As a design for digital media student, had I not taught myself and been on a college Graphic Design course prior (luckily a very good one at that) I can assure you that I would have no clue on how to make a design that a professional designer would even consider to be adequate. If you want to go to university to be able to design to a professional standard, do not do this course.

Illustration for Screen Arts, BA Hons

By UoBAnimationStudent On 7th March 22 verified Verified student

Teaching is very poor. Tutors couldn't care less about us, with one making comments such as "I think of this as a part-time job". We are here to learn practical skills so that we can become animators when we graduate, which does not look like it is going to happen. The uni also chose to stay online when other unis were fully open, which further impacted our poor education. When we have asked for extensions on our deadlines for perfectly valid reasons, we have been messed around by tutors and threatened to be capped when our situations have been completely out of our control. We have one tutor who uses our course as a promotional opportunity for her friends, and another who is nice but doesn't seem to have a clue what is going on most of the time. The uni also frequently goes on strike, cancelling our lectures, and when I inquired about replacement sessions, I was told that these would not be happening. The amount of stress that this uni has caused me and my classmates is extortionate.

The only thing thats good is the personal tutor but it is unorganized. They kept on sending wrong emails and apologized. Why can't ya double check the emails before sending them?!

On top of paying £9,250 per year to attend, you have to pay for your printing in a library that does not have the capacity for all the students that need to use it. The course is quite unorganised and there are often mistakes on timetables which has led people to miss out on certain workshops. The workload however is manageable but there is a lack of support from the tutors.
