the college has been better than expected. I knew it was a good college before I came here but it has surpassed my expectations. the library in the college is also excellent
the college is constantly striving to help students secure work experience and we have careers workshops in tandem with workshops with industry professionals Learning best business practice and writing business plans is integral to the course.
teachers are extremely knowledgeable and constantly correct the students when talking tech language which is very important in my opinion the ability to email tutors and get a swift response is extreamly helpful
excellant/. this is why I chose this college above 4 others within my travel distance
any support you require is catered for at all times
I've been at Solihull college for over four years and I will be sad to leave in May. I love university life!! It's been a great learning curve changing careers to explore different avenues in the field of education.
Careers come in regularly to advise on what our qualifications can do to help with our future careers
I like that I can study one day a week a full time course
Great feedback always there to support students
Loved my foundation degree but Found year 3 harder however have had a fab time here, made lifelong friends and a number of tutors will always be remembered for their hard work
Career department has been helpful and signposted places to research myself, previous knowledgable teachers and bringing outside employers into us
Most the social aspect and subject of my course Least some tutors lack knowledge however others are above and beyond
Very good, took on board previous feedback about the food
Feedback depends on the teachers however most tutors are a+ and will go above and beyond

Really happy with the support and feedback from tutors and other members of staff.
I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience so far. There is a great mix of ages and experience on my course and everyone is supportive of each other. I'm very excited at the possibilities for my future that this course has given me.
Workshops are taught by professionals and opportunities for networking are encouraged. There have been workshop sessions in professional environments to give a taste of real work in a live environment.
I like the workshops and I've learnt many new skills, with digital and analogue that I would not have known about if I hadn't been on the course.
There is a separate centre for Higher Education students which provides a place to study, eat and relax. The studio has recently been updated with new equipment and it's great that the studio and darkroom can be booked out for additional practice. There is a well stocked library which will arrange delivery of books to another campus if it's more convenient. The study sessions arranged by the library are very good.
Support has been vey good so far. The one to one sessions by the tutor really help to provide focus on the areas that require more work. The tutor has a lot of real word experience so is a great. person to offer advice and guidance.
It has been exciting and I have already progressed massively and learnt so much since starting the course and it has made me excited to start my own work. I have enjoyed the work within each project so far.
We have done voluntary work with professionals, opportunities for work placement during the summer and workshops with professional photographers, teaching us multiple techniques and talking about the world of work.
We have a wide range of different types of photography ranging from fashion to food, or newborn to weddings. I like that we get to have many workshops to practice different techniques and learn many new skills. I would like to be in an extra day in college to get as much practice as I can as I am eager to learn more and it could reduce the course length allowing us to go out into the work life sooner.
We have a wide range of facilities, we have a HE center which allows us to go up and work quietly and there is access to a kitchen with a microwave and a kettle. There is also a well stocked library full of many books for every single genre you could think of. There is also a well equip studio full of all the equipment we need, and if we ever require new equipment out tutor will do her best to get it for us.
We get a 1 on 1 meeting throughout every project to speak with our tutor on how our work is coming along and how we feel about the project so far, and if we need. There are areas in college where you can go and speak to someone privately if you need to speak to someone about something on your mind and all the staff support each student regardless of the situation.
I've been really enjoying the course as the facilities are great and I've found the projects/briefs to be really exciting. I have loved my experience as my tutor have been exceptionally supportive. I have been pushed to challenge myself and the facilities provide the perfect opportunities to learn new skills.
Good so far. The teachers know what theyre doing and all the resources we need are available to us. Im not really sure how to make this reach 160 characters sorry.

So far so good. nice people, nice equipment and nice location. Great teachers/tutors. course is fun and i'm learning a lot. looking forward to what comes next on my course
We have professional development lectures and opportunities to work in the field doing professional work for clients. We are being taught skills that will come in handy when looking for work in the field or for when setting up our own business.
We have a relaxed atmosphere that allows people to work in a nice environment.
Great one to one time that gives us proper feedback on work
