Really enjoying it, feeling challenged, seeing real progression and growth. I would tell future students to definitely do this course! Not an opportunity to be missed!
Really well as far as I am in
Least is that it’s hard to catch up if I have missed something from going too fast so would be improved by videoing session
Really good facilities Would be better if there were more, eg. Makeup and products, expensive to buy more as students when there’s not enough in uni supplied
It has been totally different to anything I have experienced in an education setting before, it’s tough and at times very challenging however it’s not meant to be a walk in the park and is an amazing way to push yourself, I love the fact the classes are smaller I find that helps a lot the conversations within the classes are more in depth because there’s more of a conversation that can be had and everyone can hear each other as a posed to a full auditorium. I love the support I get from my tutors and I hope to do very well on this course.
The tutors give us the best information and teach us many skills that enable us to enter employment or work placements
I like how the tutors make us feel relaxed the course sessions are not stressful and the help and support we receive as students is amazing
The space available is good a bit small but it’s good to have designated spaces just to work or just to socialise and not have to worry about being disturbed
Amazing, the tutors always give the best feed back on work and in what ways we can improve ourselves academically, they are always there for personal support and take time to get to know us all individually
Enjoyable, time consuming
Not yet applicable
Lots of time with tutors, facilities not always available
Alright could have more
Very enjoyable and all staff members have been extremely helpful whether it is work or personal issues. The course itself in very enjoyable and the modules are all applicable.
By involving modules such as work related learning where you have to go in the area you wish to work in and gain experience.
The course is great, and all staff are brilliant.
Good facilities but could just do with being slightly updated.
Very good, very helpful and always available.
Really enjoying the course, deffinitley have struggled but always came out with good marks. The actual modules are exactly what I thought they’d be which I’m happy with because I know a lot of degrees can disappoint in that element.
Always invite us to networking events. Have links in industry and with other courses relevant to us. Work experience is part of our 2nd year and they help us by getting the placements by getting us in with the northern film school.
I most enjoy the freedom within modules as it allows us to showcase our skills without having to compare to those around us. I do wish there was slightly less academic work as it’s not really relevant to the job’s from the degree but I understand that they’re necessary.
Very good. I like the fact the building is separate to the college so we have our own space. Facility wise we have different buildings suited for different lessons and they’re both very central
Tutors are supportive and point us in the direction of who we can get academic help from however you have to reach out for it and I do wish it was just a given as some people don’t like having to ask for help
I have been there 2 years and now in final year. It's been pleasant . It is a good place to study. The tutors are good and you can relate to them as there is no pressure
The courses are tailored towards getting a job. Regular jobfaires are taken place.
I like the way lectures are done in classroom,plus lectures are available on classroom
Excellent. Small to large lecture rooms. Excellent cantine with plenty of options catered for. Easy to find your way around lecture rooms. Toilets are well maintained. The centre is run by excellent experienced staff and help is always available.
Support is excellent. There is help for anything you need. You can make appointments to see members of staff/ tutors. You can email tutor when not in college and get a reply
The Extended Diploma in Fine Art and Design course was one of the best courses I have studied on, the tutors were perfect and made the course exciting and memorable. The course explored a range of different skills and media's with live and closed briefs. It prepares you for a job in the niche you choose or your chosen university course. If I could do it all over again I would, you really feel yourself grow and progress and all the staff are helpful and have an interest in your future.
The tutor are very helpful
Very detailed assignments
Its alright but need more improvements
Very good, I am enjoying my time there
Not got into that stuff
It’s easy to understand and the teachers are very helpful
it was alot better than i was expecting, i enjoy the course and i made alot of friends this year. im doing amazing in the exams, alot better than i did at A- levels due to the support i have recieved
they bring in ex students that are doing different degrees and careers to talk to us about what we can do after this course. they support our descions and help with our statements
i like how they try to intergrate practicals in to the course every week, hands on approach makes it easier to understand and its fun to do. the thing i like least is that sometimes the tutots talk fast and go through the lesson fast as it makes me rush my notes
they have good facilities and extremely good tutors who care about your mental health as well as your work. its really easy to understand the course content as the lecturers make it fun and exciting. i love how they have a therapy dog and show interest in our day to day lives. ive gotten so much support from these tutors than i ever did ad high school.
the academic support is exceptional, they talk to us contstantly and ask us if we understand the topic and explain it again if we dont. we get one on one sessions which we talk about our progress. personal support is amazing as they care alot about our mental health and take the time to take us out of lessons to ask us if we can cope
Some parts were really good but lack of tutor last semester has made things hard, the tutors have been supportive and got problems we had sorted! Hoping this semester is better
They are very good the staff are really supportive
Last semester we didn’t have a tutor for a matter of weeks
They are good but could be better,
Tutors are good
