I lived on campus last year and it was pretty ideal! Close to my classes, beautiful scenery, nice grass to sit on, fountains. Also had my own bathroom which was great. The course itself is good but could be improved. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in art however you do have to pay for a lot of materials and printing yourself... which doesn't seem right to me. But anyway the teaching staff are great mostly, very passionate about their subjects and helpful for you to achieve your best. The only thing worth mentioning is that the art courses are 50% practical and 50% art and design history. Which no one tells you at first and should in theory be a joint honours but it's not, you will have exams and essays for art history. If you reall don't want To study art history, choose another university. Never the less it's a great uni. The students union is ages away so I've not even bothered. However we do have the cornerstone festival which is unique to us and there are lots of volunteering opportunities if you're interested in that! Worth a look around if this sounds like it's for you .
