It's fun and nice, a bit rough in some places and can be improved but an amazing experience for someone special from an international country. A lot of fun memories made.
Don't know much but they do hold seminars and support as much as they can.
very supportive and well informed
There are many very nice and supportive facility.
It's a bit distant from town but in a nice open place so it's okay.
Nice way to meet people and communicate but university could put more effort and support the societies.
Too expensive without the luxury of worth. Much is lost on me as to where the money goes as it doesn't go into support for own property breakdown, it doesn't go into jobs unless you ask. Everything is not given when it really should be.
Not mandatory, should be.
Textbook driven, disruption is not taken seriously. Assistance is fantastic though.
Not present enough
Okay for the purposes of film
Varied. Counselling is solid.
Changing course and halls has been so easy with the help of student services. Counselling and wellbeing have supported me so much. Staff on Visual communication are amazing, illustration staff are ok.
Lots of help with the jobs/marketing department, but I’ve not used much yet as a first year. Plenty of seminars and workshops to help with employability
I like how my course encourages experimentation and thinking outside the box, but I’m not required to be in enough. I’ve got so much time off, some weeks I’m only in for an hour lecture on a Monday morning which is absolutely not worth 9 grand. I’ve gone from having around 9 contact hours at the start of the unit to literally 1 after about 6 weeks of my unit. Tutors contradict themselves a lot.
Couldn’t be better if they tried. Mental well-being is the number one focus.
Fantastic. Always equipment and space to use, inclusive toilets, plenty of places to get a drink or a snack and lots of places to fill your water bottle
It’s so easy getting to and from uni, even walking is around 30 minutes each way. Doctors surgery, chemist and off licence are all right next door
There’s pretty much a society for everything you’d be interested in between AUB and BU
Academic support is ok when I’m actually in workshops and lessons. Counselling and wellbeing is incredible, gets booked up quickly though
Overall I've enjoyed being here, I joined a society which I felt very at home with and the people there treat everyone as family. So far as the course goes, I have really liked how the course is set out by tutors and the very relaxed teaching approach.
Plenty of lecturers coming in to talk about varying industries, how to get noticed, and workshops on portfolio advice etc.
Lecturers are so down to earth and treat you as a person instead of a grade, but they are stern when they feel you aren't doing your best.
Honestly the SU don't really do much by way of what I've noticed on or off campus.
If you don't fancy any of the societies at AUB, there's an even wider choice you can look to at BU who are more than happy for you to join.
Pleanty of options available in terms of personal counselling, although I've never had to use one myself. Tutors give feedback almost the entire way throughout your projects and actively encourage peer assessment as much as possible.
Amazing! I struggled with the move in first year and was close to quitting but I am glad that I stuck with it, graduating this year. The tutors and university have been supportive throughout the three years and the university will continue to support after graduation through various platforms.
Leaving university, I will have many transferable skills (practical as well as interview techniques etc) due to the workshops that the university hold.
I like that there are a variety of tutors who specialise in different things
Our student union is very good, they always try and help everyone
Amazing! Especially for the Make-up course as it is industry professional
Yes, there are many bus routes etc.
There are many different societies/sports to get involved with
Very good. The tutors are very supportive and are willing to give feedback whenever you ask for it. The counselling at student services is also very good and confidential.
It's been very fun meeting lots of new people and learning new things, it's also been good to have independence and freedom living away from home and learning what it's like to be an adult
I'm not sure yet
The freedom they give us within the modules and the studio culture
Very good, not many facilities but there is a lot going on
The facilities are good but there's a lack of study spaces, the library is always full so there's nowhere else to go apart from the canteen
I would say so yes there's shops on campus and a doctors around the corner of the university, there are buses that go every 15 minutes so it's not hard to get anywhere
For AUB there's not many societies or sports but we don't have the facilities for it
Very good there's lots of people available for various things
Its a nice size university where you feel apart of the community. The staff and students are welcoming and there are many opportunities to engage in different sports, workshops and experiences
They do lots of workshops and give us many opportunities to better our practice
The strength and weakness is the standards of our grading, it is very difficult to get good grades. This proves when you get good grades its because you earned it. But in comparison to other courses the average isn't as high, making us seem less
I feel the process could be more transparent and see how our opinions are getting noticed
The facilities are great, perfect for a creative place
The university is close to thehighstreet and in a nice student area
There isn't many sports as the main sport teams are with BU which we aren't allow to compete with
we have a free foundling service and the tutors are very helpful, however I do wish we could get more help for learning disabilities such as dyslexia
It is tough, you have to learn everything through your own research. Tutors just set you a list of things which they would like to see on the submission, giving lectures about research, reading and clues on how to be efficient and how to manage your time is a bit useless for me. They love bubble diagrams and graphs, they pay more attention to the aesthetic way of presentation on paper than real architectural / interior design knowledge, which is very sad.
Honestly, I don't know.
I like freedom, that tutors just give us a little prompts but not the ready answers. They should learn about constructions much more, also it is frustring that a one of our tutors is not professional in this field, so how he could be good at providing us with architectural knowledge when he is not knowledgeable enough?
It is great, they always get involved in cool events
I think, that whole Adobe Creative programmes should be provided for free to download on our own devices. The rest of facilities like workshops are very well equiped
It is ok, but can be better. From the town center is about 30 minutes by bus
There is not that much feedback about our artworks which I was looking for. Student service is always very helpful, love them!
Majority of projects haven't been very interesting. But other that it's been fun. The projects seem to get better each time but the css and html project is a right ball ache.
I think they have some services but I've never used them.
I don't feel like we actually get taught much
Never really hear from them myself
pretty good facilities but there's a weird hostility between different courses and using their resources.
yeh its fine but kind of far from town centre
Very little societies for the Arts Uni
Good support when having tutorials but in terms of learning new practical skill not very good.
brilliant. feel very settled. theres always lots going on socially and academically, everyone was really welcoming and i've learnt how to manage my time to get everything done.
guest speakers events with employers events you can get involved in with creative people.
most- very open, allow creativity- in depth and informative group sessions. least- in need of more technical lessons.
its a good student union
they are top quality and have everything we need.
Yes, i'm right in the middle of everything and the uni is only a 15 minute bus journey.
There's loads of societies to choose from.
