I had a fabulous three years there. The course leaves you with a good grounding to go out into the industry and get your foot in the door. It's tough, but isn't everything worth doing? The theory is excellent, as is the practical side of the course. As long as you're motivated, and like a challenge, you'll fit right in. My year was a good year - there were D&AD pencils won plus nominations, and YCN wins from us too. All this coming from strategic framework from which to wind creative practice around - not to mention encouragement. The library is awesome - you will find anything you need. And as for the college, you can use any facilities you like. Small enough to be intimate and make friends - but large enough to have impact, the college is an excellent place to study. You will find all the support you need from people who really want to support you.
The most down to earth and helpful tutors. You can feel at ease and get all the help you could ever want with amazing resources as well as a great team around you being staff or pupils.
