In many universities a placement within in a internship is usually dedicated to another year, therefore making your course 4 years long. At UCA Fashion Promotion, the Industry Awareness course allows you to complete a 8 week internship within the industry as a unit in second year. I even extended this internship for 9 months, turning it into a paid position which is very useful for work experience on my grad CV.

This entire unit has been one of the most enjoyable so far, it has really made an impact upon how - as a designer - you have to use influences around you and work to a certain audience.The use of sensitive issues such as migration and refugees, means that individual practises & views have to be left to the side as you are designing for a particular reason.

University for the Creative arts is great for the industry awareness you gain throughout the fashion promotion course. However due to basically no societies, sports events or socials university life has no quality unless you try very hard to make it. The course is taught more like a college qualification then a degree and teaching is unprofessional.

Overall, the course is full of useful and interesting content, although the structure and longwinded nature of the subject does let it down and at times makes for a relatively boring degree. However; the nature of the course allows the individual to be as creative as you like, increases design skill and also allows you to learn new and different processes which can then be put into practise in your work. At times like anything the teaching is not always as good as it could be, however tutors are always available for one to one meetings and are always willing to help.

Foundation year has been really good, I've learnt a lot of new skills which makes me more confident going into a degree course; it also helps get used to the 'art uni' vibe which I think is much different to a normal uni and one you should definitely look into if you're more concerned about social life - e.g. As Canterbury is quite a small uni there isn't such a big student presence in terms of uni events etc...

The course itself is very productive if you're willing to put the time and effort in with your peers to plan shoots. There's an excellent moral and work ethic from students. Tutors (for the most part) are fantastically enthusiastic to teach and see us learn more as our skills develop. The variety of teaching means students can choose what skills they want to develop further, in a sense giving you more control over what you get out of your degree. The course encourages experimentation with roles, meaning every student gets a chance to try new thing in projects.

Literally jumps from one thing o another. Nothing completely consistent and doesn't flow with each module

I love studying television production at my university. The lecturers are very kind & helpful in terms of feedback and academic support throughout the one and a half years that I've been studying here. The course is absolutely amazing; we have so many resources, famous guest lecturers coming in, equipment that we hire free of charge and in general we get a lot of good contacts for the future. It's not a module-based where you can have a choice of what you want to follow each semester, but a unit-based one with fixed units that we work on each term. In addition, the location of the course is at the Maidstone TV Studios, which is brilliant for work experience and contacts in general.

Feels more like going back to secondary school than going to university. Only lecturer who listens to me is my head of department.
