hi i'm thinking about where to study graphics when i go to university... i wondered if anyone who knows about these things could help me in my choice (employers, current designers, students, etc) i'm currently enrolled on a Graphics BTEC and am on course to get a distinction grade (...so you know that i'm serious about it). i'm now taking a gap year and will apply to uni during that year... the thing is i've found it hard to gague the reputations of the courses and uni's that i've been looking at? as the uni's that offer the Graphic Design generally aren't in the standard league tables with the more traditional unis (not that league tables are all that helpful anyway...) anyway i guess (in an ideal world) i'd be looking for... a good standard of teaching (actual instruction, teaching skills as well as more general creative and critical thinking) 'good' students attracted there (...i mean people that primarily at uni to learn, are creative, etc) good facilities (own working space) smaller class sizes good reputation good location (?) (not so important tho... i'm mainly thinking about the actual course here) at the moment i've been looking at... Central St. Martins (i know this one has a good rep... how hard is it to get in to?) Falmouth* UWE (bristol)* The Arts Institute at Bournemouth* (* as i live in the SWest... but i'd go further if the uni was great... well if they let me in) any help would be great! thanks.
