Student review
It was an enoyable and informative course, that i learnt alot from. I had a positive experience overall with majority of tutors being very supportive. A negative was we did not all receive clear, relevant and helpful advice in how to further apply our art degrees to jobs once finished the course (unless you undertook the professional practice class which did not suit all students time schedules etc).

This course will teach you how to think, live, breath and practice like a contemporary artist or theorist. The course was mainly based on explaining the theory to the practice, there is very little technical skill taught. I’ve come out of it with the ability to analyse creativity using a critical thought process.

It really is a great course if you love contemporary art, but if you prefer design, this course is not for you.
