Fashion Design BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

university so far has been amazing and even though money gets spent a lot quicker than you think, you can still have a great time making friends, studying the course you love and enjoying an independent life. i really do believe leeds and the uni specifically has been the reason i’ve enjoyed uni so much so far and can’t hank the staff enough for making my time so far so good.

Job Prospects
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

it has student rooms to chat to careers advisors, tutors are more than happy to talk about it, emails are constantly sent about small career boosting opportunities, internships and competitions and career prospects are well advertised around the uni.

Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?

the thing i like most about the course is how much of the subject it covers, from pattern cutting to design rendering to sewing, we do it all. i also love how hands-on and genuinely caring the tutors are about the course, they’re passionate. the thing i like least about the course would have to be the little amount of contact time we have with tutors a week. however, it’s the same with all courses in all uni’s so i really can’t complain.

How many contact hours per week do you have?

Students' Union
What do you think of your Students' Union? If you don't get involved, why not?

from what i know the students union is one of the best, i have received emails and promotional opportunities to join and so on and if i had more time i would definitely be up for joining, the only reason i dont is down to lack of time with studying a practical course

Uni Facilities
How good are your university’s facilities?

the university’s facilities are out of this world, they have everything you can think of and with the correct permission you can use whatever you need. we’re at the point a new building is being built just to suit the amount of facilities for certain departments and to give the students more space to work.

City Life
What’s the city life like?

city life for me has been great, coming from the countryside i thought it would be hard to adjust to city life, however, being relatively quite and friendly, leeds has been amazing with making me feel comfortable.

Clubs and Societies
What are the clubs and societies like?

there are many clubs and societies within leeds arts, i even signed up to a couple myself, they range from life drawing society to cheese society, there really is something for everyone. with friendly staff and student operators, they make you feel at home

Student Support
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

there is a lot of support available in the uni which is a key thing for me. having been to ask about counciling and being told that there’s a waiting list because the support and demand is so busy, i resorted to chatting to my tutors about personal and work related issues who are more than happy to talk for a while, support is great at leeds arts and you feel completely safe.

I think I initially struggled a lot but now in third year I feel I can reflect back on leeds and the arts uni positively. It has so much to offer but it really is down to the student to use the facilities and get the help, it’s all on you if you want to successfully use the uni to your advantage.

Learnt a lot and covered a wide variety skills and disaplines. The course can be very intense at times with a lot expected from you but it’s a steep learning curve which really helps to develop and improve quickly

Its amazing! I love the content and the way it has been layed out, althoughi would have like some of the submissions to be spaced out a bit more. The course covers a range of topics where you can decide to focus is you choice later on, but yoi have a base to work with anything.

So far university has been incredibly busy and hard work but we are always encouraged to do more and take our ideas further, and given individual advice from our tutors that is endlessly useful. It is obvious that this is the best graphic design curse in the country and why it is
