University- how i understand is UNIVERSE + CITY which means the learning of whole universe is available in a small city like place called university. people from different cultures, backgrounds, different style of working comes under one roof to put the best of their creativity. Semester 1 was challenging in terms of exploring, learning and adjusting but it was fun, Semester 2 faculty helping us to understand our research questions, Hence, building confidence. But then pandemic hits. In one night flew back to my country leaving away all the belongings and dreams. just for the safety. Everything was virtual, had to change my research, not access to equipments or limited research sources, camera shy peer don't speak in feedback sessions, network issues. money sucking accommodation. Overall from here it was a very bad experience.
They had arranged wonderful virtual sessions of career and employability. But in a month we all will get to know the job scenario.
MOST- labs, equipments, availability books for research, helpful staff, diversity in class LEAST- couldn't get access to any of the above things because of pandemic, through online class we can't study design, signal issue/ network interruptions, low interactions between students, couldn't see other students work / process in person and still the feeling of "Even after this, will i be able to find the job? "
They are doing well with their job. During this pandemic they are working amazingly. i wish i could also join this team but my application was pending to be approved, then this pandemic hits. Now everything is on hold and Sadly, i never got a chance to be part of wonderful student union.
Most of the things were just a click away. any help with technicians or to find a quick meditation session, just a click away. but to get an virtual access to hard copies of books was very difficult. Though the technicians were very helpful.
I love my college, it is near to Thames. The best location one can ask for. But what i wish it to had is, more of art related shops/ environment. like of CSM i just love love that campus-massive library and building. The vibe is soo classy as well as fun. Feels like we are in design college. I always wanted to experience a campus as it will have all the shops, materials easily available but at chelsea we need to travel a little more to source few items.
I am a MA student and we are not exposed to any of the sports kind of thing. there are societies i heard but never came across.
They were extremely helpful during this pandemic. Thankyou
Very disappointing. This course has not taught me any skills. If I could put zero stars I would. I would advise prospective students to avoid this course and save their money for one where you will actually be tutored. Do not be fooled by the reputation of the course, you would learn more in a smaller course where you actually have classes and not fifteen minutes of teaching a week.
Due to the amount of students, getting an appointment with the career department is not easy. Unless you get lucky with the drop -in sessions, which only last 15-30 min, where you will spend your tile explaining your work to someone who has no idea about the type of industry you want to work in.
The lack of teaching on this course is abysmal. There is around one skill class a year available to students (apart from the printmaking department). There were no drawing classes before I personally pushed for one. In an illustration course, you would expect there would be classes to learn these things but this course does not provide them. If you go to this course, you will rely on the Internet to teach you things, so save your money.
Facilities are decent. Library is good, with lots of spaces to work. Cafeteria is alright as well. The studios are also alright, but no nowhere near large enough for the amount of students.
I did not personally experience the personal support but the academic support is decent to a point. Tutors in the academic part of the course are good at helping with essays. Tutors in the studio part of the course try to help but can only offer so much attention, due to the number of students. They also specialize in very generalized things, making it hard to get relevant feedback.
learning how to find my own practice very self led. the uni location is amazing and is so well central with great transport. The facilities are great just good if all areas were a bit more open and allowed practice in certain technicals
a few classes every year but more about finding our own practice
very self led
very poor / none existent
extremely good but a bit short quantity with amount of students
yes it has a beautiful location right next to Tate Britain with convenience shops a short walk however not many cafes
quite poor i am part of none
its quite limited you do have access to staff but so busy
Been very chilled but hard work of course to make sure I get the best grade I can get! Always have the support from my tutors to help me formulate my ideas if I can’t and able to get the advice how I can take my ideas further to better them!
Degree shows and career advice workshops and talks
I like it how I can chose what I want to do and you have the support of your tutors throughout the process
Very passionate and always aiming to get best out of everything possible!
Very good and very accessible to you
Yeah it is so close to a train station and has lots of shops and food places on offer
Varied and easy to find out information
It’s great overall and it’s always ensured that you are keeping everyone updated what’s going on!
I love it! I moved from another country to study and had a lot of expectations. It was hard to meet people at first but I managed and I'm really enjoying the course. It's really different from what I was used to but it suits me, I enjoy working on my own, having longer projects... There are things that could be better for sure but I'm extremely satisfied so far.
Lots of events, help for CVs and portfolios, careers department, you can work within the uni itself...
Really independent working / sometimes not enough support from the teachers.
Good!! Efficient!! Engaged!!
A lot of them, clean, accessible, free.
25 min bus journey to my accommodation. That is very comfortable.
I haven’t joined any society but can tell for sure they are a lot (a LOT) of them, from sports to community societies (countries/religions/origins), to cultural ones, to feminism, debates, drama…
Could be better. Not always regular. But a lot of people in the building that you can go to if needed.
Fairly frustrating at times, I don't like how little contact time we have and how the course is separated into pathways. Some of the projects have been great, but it is over subscribed, too many students for the amount of space there is
There are lots of career fairs, and placement years to get involved in.
I like that it's free and flexible. I don't like that we don;t have much contact time or tutorials
Pretty good, again not centralised so difficult to hear about it all sometimes
Very good, we can't use them all on our course however.
Yes, not too close but alright for London accommodation.
Pretty good, not centralised so difficult to find out about it all.
Fairly good, but we don't get much support and not much time with tutors.
I love CSM on my first sight and I am happy that I could live with it for 2 years. I love the fountains. I love the coal drops yard. I love the Friday markets. I love the platform bar. I love the people in CSM. If the canteen could be more delicious then it would be perfect.
We have part-time job fairs and we have workshops and events related to careers and employability.
I love the course structure which combines practice with everyday experiences and we are working in groups for each install. I would like to have more activities outside of the classroom, at least once a month.
I think they are quite helpful.
I love CSM for that you can find benches or sofas everywhere to have a rest. You can also play ping-pong and piano in public. That makes me feel good about my uni.
Yes, CSM is located at Kings Cross, and I love it.
I am a member of dance society and I like all the events that are held by Arts Student Union.
I love the academic support; however, the workshops are not that convenient for that normally we could only have tutorials on one to one base and the technicians are always quite busy.
My first term was really challenging and lonely. I was disappointed by the teaching and contact hours. This term I am working to improve my experience and my second term (so far) as been much better. I have began diving into every opportunity and building the learning environment I want to study in. Having friends visit and visiting home has also improved my mental health and wellbeing.
Artstemps employs students during and after their university days. Their are job fairs but as a first year, I haven't yet been to them.
There is VERY LITTLE contact time with tutors. The facilities are excellent.
Dont really know enough about this.
The workshops are amazing, top facilities and the staff are wonderful.
Yep. Great- really close to CSM. There is a Sunday market that sells unpackaged, organic food. The Sainsbury's and Nisa are on the street corner. There is a lidl around the corner and a great Crisis second hand shop.
None are very well advertised or enticing to join. Also the information on the website isn't up to date eg. Green Roof. Green Roof is a fantastic .
I have been on the waiting list for counselling since the first term. The dyspraxia support is good.
Good and motivating but expensive. Very nice and encouraging staff. Lots of facilities. Very good quality of teaching. But it remains expensive on a daily basis (I don’t talk about tuition fees)
I like the positivity of teachers but it’s get confusing sometimes as they are many of them.
Don’t really know about it
Good quality but expensive. Need to pay for everything
Yes, 20min by bus
I don’t use it but I should
So far it has been great. It was a life goal of mine to come here and both the university and the city haven’t disappointed. I feel challenged and I feel like I am growing in my field and has a person.
They are active in promoting evens where companies can come to school and meet the students.
I like how challenging it is but i feel like there is amost no time with tutors during the week
They are active and helpful
Amazing! Especially compared to the uni where i did the BA
Yes, i think it’s perfect
It has a good variety
Pretty good. I feel like there is always someone at school that can help either in a academic or personal level
