There is no teaching. You get called a designer from day one and reviewed publicly weekly. Sort of a bootcamp of how to deal with criticism and do better next time. A learn by doing and learn through your classmates, but no strategy is there to manage people in case things do not work. You deal with it and move on to the next one. Unless you are rockstar designer, you know what you want to do and have a defined identity along with the hard and soft skills, don't. Otherwise, great course for a relevant themed folio. read more

I was told to pay full price for my tuition for 2 years, before they realized I should get it for free. No repayment to this day. I am far from the only student that had this problem. The level of unprofessionalism is insane! When suffering from depression in my last year I was told all my work lacked “intelligent input” and when raising concerns with my Head of Department I was told “that they thought I would be stringer than that”. This university gave me some of the most horrible years of my life. I wouldn’t send my worst enemy there. read more
