    6.8 /10

    I went to this college mainly because of the reputation it had for the arts. I wanted a school that would not only teach me practical art techniques but also processes that would help me make it in business. This school offered this alongside many opportunities with companies.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is interesting starting with a foundation year before entering your degree. The foundation year allows exploration but is also directionless and vague. The actual degrees are rather high quality in education however, I found that people stay an extra year just to learn more.
