Throughout my time at the University of Chichester, I have never once doubted whether the degree I decided to do was the right one for me. I've enjoyed every moment of it. Considering the course is only 6/7 years old, it offers a good range of content which gave me a great insight into the different fields and perspectives in psychology - helping me to make a decision in what area I would like to eventually pursue a career in. I felt the structure of the course sufficiently prepared me well for the subsequent years and to go on and do a Master's after graduation. The teaching was impeccable; I have developed a fantastic relationship with the lecturers - they are approachable and extremely supportive (you can tell they genuinely want you to do well on your course). It was so clear how enthusiastic and passionate they are about their specialist areas and you almost adopt this enthusiasm and passion for the subject yourself, it's wonderful. They also listen and take into account any issues you may have with the course - your opinion very much counts! There are a range of different assessments within the course including presentation, exams, lab reports and many more which gave people a greater opportunity at getting the mark they deserved. Overall, I cannot knock the course or the lecturers and I am thoroughly glad I went to Chichester to study a subject I am very passionate about.

English and creative writing is a three year course and for the first two years you do pretty much the same thing. This means the course doesn't really become specified until the final year. Compared to how this course is structured at other universities, it feels like a waste of a year.Additionally on the course, no time is spent in making students feel comfortable with one another. This can make it uncomfortable when it comes to work-shopping in creative classes and can make it hard to get honest feedback, which makes it hard to re-draft.On the critical side of the course, when teachers give presentations, during lectures, they will load them with pictures and photographs. This means that if you don't write down exactly what they're saying during the lecture, you will have no clue what they where talking about when you look back at the presentation online.On the bright side, the maximum amount of hours you'll have for lectures in a week is 8, which gives you plenty of time to read, write and do personal things. On the bad side, when you don't want to read or write, the rest of the university will be busy with their actual fully packed courses and you'll wonder why you're paying so much for an underdeveloped course, and going to a university where everyone else is too busy to do anything.

Positive aspects of the course include that in your final year, the teachers will start to give you proper, detailed and really good feedback, and that help is always there for those who ask for it. The teachers and administrative staff are also all very nice.

The University itself is very nice with new building work taking place and has plenty of sporting facilities. The course itself is very broad which is good as it covers a whole spectrum of sports pathways. My personal favourite is Performance Analysis but motor learning development is also very good. The lectures are very informative and helpful.

My course is great! I get to do 9 hours of acting a week, 6 hours of dance, along with a few lectures and a 1 to 1 singing lesson! The teachers are brilliant! They know their stuff and are are genuinely nice and happy people. However some things are a little unorganised and you have to search for answers yourself a lot of the time.

This course seemed exciting and promising when I decided to take it. With options to do modules in teaching, musical grammar and being able to set how much dance, acting and singing that I do, it appeared to be perfect. How wrong I was.

I was confused by the reading list that I was sent a few weeks before the first semester started, as it included books on fundraising, which was not something I was anticipating on being involved in the course. It wasn't until the third day when we were told what the course would involve, which was basically just charity. There was no mention of a musical grammar module, nothing about teaching, or business, as some people had been led to believe the course involved, and there was certainly no way that I could see to link "arts development" back into musical theatre.

I was disappointed also when there was no option to increase the amount of dance and acting that we could take on the course, although we could drop classes if we desired. Singing was also not included automatically, we had to drop a module to be able to take it. I'm only thankful that we could drop the arts development modules for it.

A lack of suitable facilities for dance has further hindered my education, and led to injury for myself and others on numerous occassions. The university has taken too many students with little consideration as to the space that is avalible. 

​Despite all of this, most of the teachers have done their best to deal with the spaces we have been allocated. Dance teachers even apologise to the students for the quality of the flooring, and the teaching is up to an acceptable standard, even if the streaming system is not entirely accurate.

 My only issue with teaching is the arts development lectures, which are often long winded, and the lecturers tend to pick on certain students a lot. They may appear to be this way because of how seemingly irrelevant this side of the course is. Communication is poor.

The fine art course at the university of chichester is so eye opening. You get a chance to be yourself and work in the medium you wish, with nothing but support from each one of the lecturers. I am in the third year currently and I feel so inspired at the moment by how much each student in the year have grown by the aid of the lecturers and tutors. Each one of them has gotten to know us personally and this has helped me grow as a person and an artist. The course had sculpted me into a more confident and skilled artist and I am very happy here and I know alot of other people are too. Tutorials are very regular and this enables you to reflect on your own work as well as see other students work. You also gain alot of knowledge from the people around you in the course, as in the studio space you get a chance to see other people's works and share advise and knowledge with each other. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that loves art.

The dance and acting choices are very varied, allowing for a greater extension of knowledge through the different styles. The contact hours increase through the degree and the modules are also quite varied allowing a greater development through the practical and theoretical elements of musical theatre. The course enables you to perform up to 2 fully staged musicals per year and at least 1 straight acting play with the university allowing for more performances through the musical theatre society.

The BMus degree at Chichester University is a performance filled course with lots of hands on experience in ensemble performance and orchestras and bands

The course content included a wide range of subject area such as hr, finance,economics,supply chain management, preparation for working along with many others. I believe this gave me a good overall view of business. The assessment criteria was either exams assessments or assessed presentations which was interesting as each need the use of different sets of skills. The class structure was similar to college with about 20/30 people in each lecture which made you feel closer to the lecturer in terms of them answering any queries you may have.
