Great course. Really enjoying each module. Not great facilities, but it is being improved. Good student support. Only problem is I've had to do my own research when it comes to my own future. The course focuses more on becoming a musician. So in the classes where we go over job prospects, it often doesn't apply to me and isn't much help.

Great Course i believe.... just dont do the foundation year course or fail the entry requirements to do the foundation year as it will just put you off the first year of the course and you may drop out. With the Foundation year it has be regret and i nearly left the rubbish waste of £6,000 of my year. The reason why this is rated well is because of people in the first year of the course i know are enjoying themselves and I HAVE WITNESSED IT. read more
