First time post- Loughborough Industrial Design BA worries (Product design)

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi, this is my first time post, not sure if this is the right forum for this topic or not.
    So, basically, I am going to study at L'boro in September doing industrial design. I got in last year and deferred my place until this September.
    In essence, I'm worried about whether I'm good enough to do the course. My main concern is that my sketching ability is not fantastic, its good, however not very consistent, requiring a LOT of pressure, stress and time to produce a sketch that I'm happy with. When I see work done by students at L'boro doing the course, I'm terrified- their stuff is fantastic. Basically i'd like to know what to expect when arriving in September- should I be worried? Or are the tutors understanding and do they help you to improve your sketching- or do they expect you to be at a very high level already? Maybe I am just worrying too much- as the more reasonable side to me says that if I was good enough to get the grades and be successful in the interview process, then I should I be fine.

    Any and all responses would be much appreciated.
