I did this one day Saturday course and really enjoyed it. The tutor, Phil, was very helpful and I picked up lots of hints and tips on different designs, how to do them quickly and what to consider if you want to do this as a sideline. Thoroughly recommended.

Facilities

Facilities were good. A model was provided or you could bring your own kids, and lots of paints were also provided.

Student life

Not really applicable.

Do not study this course at this college

The college is not ready for higher education students - do yourself a favour and study with UWE or Oxford Brookes - do not take this course at New College - poor quality teaching, lack of resources/opening of library times - libray is ran like a youth club - no feedback with course work - no real guidence just told to get on with it your at Uni now - out of 15 students only 3 of us stayed the course - the reflective practise was a waste of time

Facilities

classes very noisey, no lecture halls, students walked in without knocking if they wished to see a teacher - awful! Music blaring from cars when trying to do exams

Student life

full of teenage kids

Fantastic course and a brilliant tutor. Course well taught and resources were great. I wanted to try this kind of massage and this introductory course was perfect. Am now going to embark on a practitioner course. The college was great and liked the goody bag. Learnt a lot and would recommend.

Facilities

New College is a relatively new building so good enviroment. Light and airy classroom, very clean and tidy.

Student life

This cours was only a one day workshop but everyone on the course got on well together - a nice group of people.

The teacher is a really good laugh and gives it too us bluntly and is too the point. The lessons are very fun and enjoyable.

Facilities

The rooms have computers but not enough the class is too big and they need to install more air conditioning.

Student life

The class is a great class and easy to make new friends and get along with them. I do enjoy going to class.

A Good Choice

the course really provides help to understanding the way people are. There is no major difficulty in the course but remebering the key points are important. Doing the coursework on the course helps you to become more confident in what you do.

Facilities

The classrooms are well organised so that each student can be seen by the teacher. This helps to show if the student is struggling. There are many useful resources such as the library and open learning centre where provided is many computers that are availiable to students.

Student life

Each class is made up of about 20-25 students which is a reasonable amount. Enjoying each subject is important as you learn stuff more but also that there are many group tasks where you get the chance to get to know everyone and express your own individual opinions.
