Honestly the best university for any creative subjects, the amount of support is really incredible and I'm so thankful for all the staff support during my time here. Resource-wise I was blown off my feet at what was a available to use night and day, free of charge, on and off the campus. Techs and course staff are really knowledgeable and helpful too. Careers and the students union are my two favourite areas of the college despite clearly being the least funded. Both areas do great things with what they've got so I can only imagine how much they'd thrive with the appropriate funds. The clubs and societies are a bit lacking but they are led by students and not everyone has the time to be running them alongside their work and the wifi can be pretty patchy at times, it's basically non-existent in the fine art and masters buildings which isn't ideal. Overall a brilliant experience here and couldn't recommend it enough!

Student Review: 3 /5
By member658965 On 26th May 21

They have wasted my time and stolen my money. There courses are shambles and I have learnt the majority of my key skills outside of university. I can only suggest that they invest in improved teaching staff and leadership. Their unwillingness to listen to suggestions and Frank rudeness when receiving complaints is very disheartening. Several staff are brilliant at their jobs I simply have not been able to flourish there.

Great facilities. Not the best for clubs and societies, think I was only ever told of three going on and they weren’t my thing.

the facilities, technicians and lecturers are truly amazing and everyone is so knowledgeable and friendly.. over covid times we have been sent stuff and the president of the SU ran a food bank from her flat which was amazing. just feel really thankful and supported in my studies here, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone (all ages, genders, everything goes at art school!)

The University Campus is alright. It's just your average building that has all the creative courses you can think of. I can't say too much about the clubs or the Student Union because I've never been to them. However, the people here are very nice and easy to talk to.

Student Review: 1 /5

This is probably the worst university I have ever attended. The lack of knowledge in many of these tutors is insane. Especially the hate they have against the foreigners. I can tell you here and now, this is a university that will do anything to keep their staff in place and let the student be wrong. Do you know what is funny? After I worked day and night to finish my work, I received a poor grade and I asked them if they even read my work and my tutor responded: "no, I don’t have time to read everyone’s work." .. is this really a fit university for people to attend?

Just overall a negative experience from tutors and their abhorrent and obvious favouritism to the complete lack of students union. Can honestly say I learnt nothing, when the tutors where challenged on the lack of teaching the course leader explained we should be learning this stuff out of uni time??? So what did we pay for? The library and student support from counsellors and careers advisers are the best part.

Our Students' Union has grown so much over the past couple of years, the staff are all so lovely, the clubs and societies are really accessible and I can't wait to see how much it develops this year.
