The 'Drawing, Discourses, and Debates' module is awful. Every lecture I watch I have no clue what point the lecturer was trying to make. The facilities are good but we only have one weekly workshop so if you actually want to learn anything, you have to be in workshops in your own time. (You have to book a spot, and there isn't always space). The rest of the time they just let you do whatever and then assess you on it. You're not really given feedback just ideas on how to develop your projects. An absolute nightmare for first years, nobody has any clue what they're doing. My personal tutor is lovely and he actually makes me want to suck it up and make the best of this course. read more

My personal tutor was basically non existent & I received no help ever, despite multiple emails. The teachers also provide very dry unsupportive help which is not that often, you’re basically alone for weeks at a time with zero guidance and I hope everyone applying is aware of that as it might not suit some people. The campus is good and lots of nice facilities & Amazing societies, but so sporty that for an artistic soul a bit intense. read more

Fine Art, BA Hons FullTime

I came to uni with a dream, that dream and all hopes for the future are now destroyed and sucked dry with all the incompetences here along with my self esteem, mental health and career prospects. All I hope for the future is that I never have to come to this place ever again. From start to finish the uni is unorganised and delivers unstimulating content, the sense of community here is a sham, if you are not a sport or engineering student you get little funding, minimum contact and the worse facilities. The union is extortionately priced, and is poorly structured. read more
