UNSW is difficult to manoeuvre in terms of application and course selection but the support team are helpful. Honestly, other than that, this course is incredible, I have learnt so many practical skills. Most importantly my personal morals and understanding of the world and context have been completely broadened.

I don't think this course prepared me at all for a career in design. It is very art-focused, I got the impression that it sets you up well if you want to be a self-supporting artist. There was zero advice or guidance on practical skill such as how to develop a portfolio, or how to find a job in the industry.

Tutors were supportive however future career prospects were not tailored into the content of the courses. More relevant material that would assist in seeking future job opportunities. Opportunities for internship with a range of companies for students to apply their skills in order to find their career path.
