My project was said to be too difficult to understand while the exhibition had a student who put a video of GTA 5 with a voice-over, that was considered art. Be aware this is not a facility to think different and explore ideas in because the tutors will not understand it.
Went to LCC for both Foundation and Graphic Design (so 4 years in total). Can not believe that this university is ranked 2nd in the world this year for art and design! The teachers barely knew us as the class sizes were too overcrowded so there was little support and most of us felt anonymous. I guess it has good (overrated) reputation in the industry but I personally had such little career support at the uni, so I'm lucky if I can even get into the industry without vital networking and skill building. The grading requirement system is very poor as I know students that clearly cheated for their projects and it was not flagged up (they still passed).
Lime grove is confusing and rooms are literally always booked when you need it. They don’t have much equipment so it’s hard to go there to do projects the cafeteria is extremely expensive for not that great of food. the food is usually cold especially jacket potatoes that they don’t even serve with cheese just lettuce. With the internet, you can only sign up one device which is useless when you have possibly a laptop and a phone or ipad.
Great studio facilities and access to equipment. Lovely canteen with good quality food. TERRIBLE toilets and classrooms. Bad building design but it's going to be rebuilt in the next few years so later students will benefit from this.
This uni is a joke. I can't wait to leave it. There are two goods tutors on my course, others are a complete joke. Course requirements are usually very unclear, marking system is really confusing. Lectures are a total joke, they expect you to do everything on your own, no supervision whatsoever. Avoid by all means.
Briefly.. I am from Amman, Jordan. When I decided to apply for the UAL, they welcomed and treated me in a good way with quick responses to my e-mail and I applied and I paid the tuition for a short course for the summer course of 2017, they sent me the confirmation. After I got the confirmation and all the papers from the university I applied for the UK embassy to get the Visa but its been rejected TWICE. The UK Embassy told me that they phoned the University to check about the confirmation and that I applied and paid the tuition but the UAL reply was: No, he is not a student at our university. The time passed and I couldn't apply again because the course would start in few days as the Visa takes from 2 to 3 weeks to be done. Anyways, I sent the UAL an email to get a refund because of the rejected Visas and to get my money back, their emails responses were so slow and they rejected to refund me as I sent them all the papers and the proofs that I applied TWICE.
Didn't enjoy my time here and ended up withdrawing. It was a while back now, went to Wimbledon, apart from being on the wrong course, it was poorly structured, teachers were never in and nobody hardly turned up, snobby lazy, environment. Only got thing was admin support staff and the ual society. Worst time ever
The worst thing about my uni is how little information is really easily accessible. I am second year and have no idea how to access any support or facilities despite this last year. When I ask people, everyone seems very unorganised and unprofessional. Good university status but honestly, I feel I get taught to a far less extent to most other unis.
I go to Chelsea and love love love it here. All of my other UAL friends that go to other uni's and visited have commented on how lovely the whole place is. It's so homey and comfortable and welcoming in a lot of ways. It being next to the Tate and a 20 minute walk from southbank is also a massive +. UAL as an entity is good also; the scale of it means that it's got really good facilities between all the campuses. using CSM library is a dream!
