Overall- very happy. I felt I learnt a lot more because it was a small uni with lots more time actually speaking to tutors. Helped that it was just a creative uni. Staff are great. Programme was great. I’m currently working at a small agency on placement.

As said before, my experience so far has been challenging but the support of tutors and peers in my class has been great. They've helped me cope being far away from home and have also really helped me with understanding the structure of the work required and how the lessons usually pan out with workshops, group critiques and other formats of receiving feedback.

I was promised a lot of things by staff before choosing CCAD as my university, none of which have been kept. I am extremely disappointed and feel let down by my uni.

My overall college experience so far has been a massive rollercoaster. On freshers week i discovered the uni doesnt have a student union bar, this made it difficult to make friends and instantly i thought i was going to be the last person on the bench when you pick your teams in dodgeball. The people at CCAD are different, it is a very accepting place and everyone shows their creativity in the way they dress and present themselfs, making people very open about themselfs. I guess i didnt expect this to be as hard as what it is but now im here and i can see how far i have come and how much i have learned i am so glad i came. Although the work load is hard, with the facilities, oppertunitys and staff i feel like its almost impossible to fail. I feel like im doing really well, theres so many techniques im still yet to learn. Academically, my grades are the highest they have ever been throughout my years at CCAD. 4 years ago, i left college with 4 ungraded results and since being at CCAD i am achieving 2:1's and even a few firsts. This is an amazing achievement for me and i cant wait to see what the future has for me after i graduate.

My Experience: Year 01: Drawing, drawing,drawing... Lots of creative projects to loosen you up and get you drawing like an illustrator should, there's trips to build up a visual library and the ability to work quite freely to produce work the way you want to. Year 02: Crazy year so far, I don't think I've worked this hard in a long time but we're working on briefs which would be applicable to the real world and it's fun to see how far you can push something from animation, to book illustration, personally created projects to work on what you want to do it's been great. Though with this comes a lot of writing and analysing, though I'm sure that this will eventually help me down the road when I break into the industry.

Mostly positive, with engaging projects to work on and good opportunities, but there have been issues with some of the tutors involving favouritism between students and harsh treatment for some students for unjustified reasons

Not what I expected at all. The workload is incredibly high compared to other courses and the communication between lectures and students is horrific along with lack of organisation in almost all places

I really love being at CCAD. I have learned so many skills that have made me a much better designer as well as ready for a job in the creative industry. Over the 3 years I have met friends that will now be friends for life
