    I've applied there too for media culture and production. I like the sound of the course but I've been hearing bad things about solent on this forum so I'm slightly worried now.

    From my experience of three and a half years, I can say they keep you on your toes. I think it is a lot better now that most of the lecturers have embraced the technology at their disposal. So you might have more than a few hours of notice before you sit your exams.

    I've applied to Solent to do Fashion Design! My cousin went there and she loved it, and after going to an open day i've now fallen in love with the place! Has anyone been given interviews/offers yet? because i havent heard anything from them, not even a letter/email saying they received my application, and i sent off 2 months ago

    I too have taken a gap year and would like to go to Solent, although I have to admit after reading some of the comments on this forum, I may be required to think again

    Hopefully most of It Is just rivalry, as I really like the look of it!

    I'd heard some bad things about solent here on the forum too, but usually it comes from students who don't even go to solent. From all the students from solent that I've asked about it, it sounds brilliant.
    I got a conditional offer from them last night for Media Culture & Production

    Yeah as far as I can tell people who don't go there hate it and people who go there love it.

    Hey i'm in my second year of Tv and video production, it really is a great course. The first year isn't as good as the second but stick it out and it will be worth it! The studios are awesome and you get some really great oppurtunities! If you want to know anything else then just ask good luck!

    Ignore them! I promise you it's a great course, am in my second year and am loving every minute of it, have got some great work experience through the uni and have gained a lot of contacts that will go on to help me in the future. Solent may not be that great for other courses, but it hasn't let me down for TV Prod yet! The first year is just an introduction to everything but the second year gets really intense and a lot more hands on.
