Overall i have really enjoyed my time so far on this University course, it has helped me expand more of my knowledge for photography and is starting to give me a career path on what I'm passionate on and hope to carry on enjoying it
Since starting in September we have had a variety of different workshops and lectures, there has also been talks for work experience and careers and also a lot of different facilities to access these things.
The thing i find most enjoyable is the workshops, it is of great help to me especially when professionals are presenting them and makes me think a lot more clearly on my ideas and inspirations for future projects.
I find the Facilities a great help to me and there are also a wide range of them in case I'm ever in need of them, some of these include the HE center which is useful when i need to get on with some work in my own time, i also particularly find the library helpful when looking for book sources for my projects
My tutor is very helpful when it comes to a project as a whole, giving me ideas and inspiration when i am struggling and giving one to ones are useful
i really enjoy my course and all the exciting things we get to do week in week out. the course teacher is amazing and always full on energy which i think really helps encourage me and my peers. we are lucky to have access to all of the facilities and equipment that we do, i find it really helps me advance as a photographer
we have been given the chance to carry out workshops with professionals, opportunities for work placements during the summer and career workshops
our teacher is highly enthusiastic and helpful in every way. she gives us endless opportunities to learn new things and experiment, and is always on hand to answer any questions when we need her.
very good, we have access to both a studio which has lots of equipment as well as a darkroom
the support given to us is very good, especially in the academic region. i am aware of the personal facilities however i have never really needed to use them so i cannot comment.
Overall the experience has been great I have attended the college before the university course so it was good already know my tutor which helped to ease into the university course.
We've had multiple workshops with professional photographers who talked to us about different pathways and how they went into the field, we also have skills audits with our tutor and there are opportunities for work placement during the summer along with career workshops.
What I like the most is how the course is set out and it is very clear what we have to do along with our tutor giving us as much help as she can so were clear on what we have to do.
They are really good we have the equipment that we need and we also have equipment that is only used by the HND/C students so they are newer than the equipment used by the whole art department.
The feedback is really helpful when it comes to what I have to do to improve my work and what I need to do also she give us as many workshops as we can so we have multiple skills to use for our work
I have thoroughly enjoyed studying at the college. I feel as though i am learning everything i need to know and more. The college is supportive in preparing you in your future.
We do workshops with professionals in the different aspects of the photography industry. This helps to give us an idea of what to expect when we finish in education, and what options are available. We get given work placement opportunities during the summer.
What I like the most about the course is my tutor who is motivational and enthusiastic. She helps us understand every aspect of what we need to know and offers support in any way needed.
The support offered by the college is great. My tutor is supportive in any way we need. Also, i am aware of the facilities available through the college if i need additional support.
The overall college experience has been great, as it has allowed me opportunities in the film and television world that I thought I could never have, so I feel well qualified to work in my chosen area.
It makes effort to increase my employability skills, as it puts you in a situation of working with a client who is outside the course and puts you in a job situation on how to handle the success and problems we go through a production company.
The most I like about the course is the theoretical side, as I find the theory part interesting. The least is practical because it's the part where I'm weakest and I don't think there is as much support as it could be.
The college facilities are great in terms of up to date equipment that are used on film and television but the only problem is that there is not enough equipment as with all the students it runs out quickly.
The support is good, it helps me a lot hearing tutors feedback to my drafts in my coursework.
I have enjoyed my experience at the college. The teachers are helpful. The staff are great but I joined at a time where staff was lacking, mainly in the technician department. I believe this can be improved such as they way student and staff can have access to the kit. It isn't as modern as other universitys.
Gives us work experience.
Teachers are engaging and listen to their students. The negative aspects is access to equipment for the course due to lack of staff.
Decent, they provide the right equipment to help the students for the course such as editing software and filming equipment.
The tutors feedback is benifitia.
My overall college experience has been the best academic years. I have great memories from this college and the staff have always been friendly and helpful. I have honestly enjoyed my time at Solihull College.
During the course they have given us opportunities to work with future clients.
What I like most about the course is that the teachers make you priority, they also take time to look at the work and give you honest feedback. The thing I dislike about the course is how one of the teachers over explain things and makes it confusing.
They are really good and the library is full of all kinds of resources to help with our work. The camera equipment could be updated and looked after more but it is still good to use for our work.
The support offered by the college is really good. The teachers feedback is honest and very helpful.
My time here at Solihull College and University Center has been honestly, one of the most memorable experiences I will have. I have met some amazing people that i never thought I would meet. I have grown in confidence and skills to a standard I thought I would never be able to achieve.
Each specific module of the course is specifically designed in order to enhance our own skills, knowledge and experience within different sectors of the media industry. This assists in making us more employable in a variety of areas across the creative media sector.
The course is taught well and efficiently. However on some occasions I have been confused about a certain essay which hasn't been explained clearly enough.
Very good and efficient. Library is full of different resources. Staff there are also very friendly and helpful in assisting with any inquiries. Our equipment room is also of a higher standard compared to other university standards in which I have heard about.
I have enjoyed the smaller sizes of classes and the personal relationships you develop with the lecturers. I have been a student rep before and have suggested new equipment and larger range of equipment, I also know that other student reps and lecturers have asked for new kit in the 4 years I have been at the uni. There hasn't been enough improvement over this period
They lecturers dedicate time to discuss your futures and try to assist in routes into the industries.
The lecturers teach to smaller classes so you feel more valued and are able to ask questions easier. The equipment available to students is very limiting and there is not enough available to the students.
The college has a good standard of facilities but there is limited kit available to film students.
I feel well supported by the lecturers and Uni. I haven't had any experience with the counselling etc.
I love it and would readily recommend. This was structured fantastically as it encouraged working alongside. The staff members were very attentive and able to support in many ways!
Offers careers advice and encourages use of your own working experience to produce your assignments!
Brilliantly taught, extra support is provided if you need it! Course work is is really explained and the detail is fantastic! The ability to gain access to all the lesson documents and any suggested reading is readily available and encouraged! Staff were very supportive of any issues if your didn’t understand something they would try and explain it with loads of different examples so you could see the real world effects
Great!! Food available during later evenings. He areas very bright colourful plenty of computers and separate areas for relaxing during lessons
All was brilliant as per my previous comments
