Course review , 30/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

My degree has been a very eye opening and exciting however, the tutors on my course make it very difficult for all the students to keep up with the work. They give us notices extremely late so there is a massive panic and then the students are always the ones to blame when its actually the tutors who are unorganised. We also need more clubs, however due to the small grounds it makes it difficult to organise anything like that of a large university.

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.

Course module review - Industry Awareness, 20/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

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.

Industry Awareness

Course module review - Social And Cultural Context, 02/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

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.
