I found our Photography course "leader" CT to be arrogant and dismissive with little to offer in terms of motivation or progression. I looked forward to lectures and guest speakers where he was not a part of our working day. You will soon come to understand why particular students are given preference over others. Rather than giving some degree of equal tutoring to all students, they very quickly select a few students to divert their time to, and then claim later down the road that those wonderful alumni achieved after their years at the Arts University Bournemouth. By our 3rd year all mature students had given up on the course, I wish I had too. they only wanted our fees in exchange for very little in return. You're lucky to get half an hour per week of one to one time, whilst spending the majority sitting in a room with a projector waiting for your turn at some point through the day to have your 10 minutes showing your work and getting some group feedback. So very uninspiring.
The only reason I stayed at these halls is cause I got a double bed.. but it was so not worth it man These halls are so bad. Our chairs were torn, walls were chipped, carpet was stained, the mop was broken and the vacuum cleaner was broken (throughout the year). My shower has been broken from the beginning of the year, the walls are so thin (you can literally hear everything) and one time water from my flatmates shower went into my other flatmates bedroom and all her stuff was soaked. The launderette downstairs is possibly the most expensive laundry place in the country. It's a 20 minute walk from uni which is amazing but then it's a half hour bus ride to everywhere else that's worth going. You can't receive mail in the evening or over the weekend. There's no overnight security and the main door breaks every once in a while. It's also hot as hell inside (especially on 3rd floor cause 'hot air rises'). Wifi is horrible. Just go to Madeira or get a house bruh
There are some major problems with this building. First of all the management are a bunch of thieves. They don't give a damn about your complaints and in the end of your tenancy they will ROB you. When you first enter the halls make sure to take CLEAR pictures of: ALL the carpets All the utilities the mattress the shower doors (very important. they charge everyone for the salt on the doors when they give it to you in a bad condition from the start) and aaaany minor defect you see. Trust me, they are thieves. the Internet is bad, the communal areas are next to none and all that would be fine if the halls were cheap but they are waaaay too expensive for what they are.
Halls are falling apart, no common room and I hardly see anyone that live in halls. A new sprinkles opened downstairs and it's always loud and my flat smells like sugar all the time. There have been things complained about at the beginning of year in September that still haven't be fixed in March. Management doesn't seem to listen to what there is to be said, and the halls aren't clean. Such a shame how they've neglected it when the location is this good.
