    I'm looking to Study Product/ industrial Design at Uni this year... but am struggling with where to put as my first and insurance places.
    Any general comments/ advice on the Uni's themselves is also very welcome.

    I'm looking for the best course... but also I'm looking for a good Uni experience!



    Where I've applied:

    Loughborough:Industrial Design
    +Course = Great reputation
    +Great workshop facilities
    +top ranked for student satisfaction
    +sport
    -Small Town
    ...Nightlife?


    Brunel:Industrial Design
    +Course = Great reputation
    +Great workshop facilities
    +sport
    -small(ish) Uni
    -Local area = not great
    ...Nightlife?


    Leeds:Product Design
    +Uni = Great reputation... don't know about the course though...
    +Great City
    +Great Nightlife
    -Poor workshop facilities


    Bournemouth:Product Design
    +Course = Decent reputation
    +Great workshop facilities
    +Beach
    -Small Uni
    ...Sport?
    ...Nightlife?


    Northumbria:Product Design
    +Course = Decent reputation
    +Great City
    +/-ok workshop facilities
    -engineering bias?
    ok sport
    ...Nightlife?


    I'm thinking it's between Loughborough, Brunel, Leeds & Bournemouth... but can't decide! Help! :confused:

    Thank you

    I was just about to start a similar thread
    I didn't apply this year but i'm going to the following. I'm not from UK so i would also like to recieve some reviews from locals. At this moment Loughborough is number one in my list because of the new building i guess. My other choices are Bournemoth and Brunel. I'm not considering Leeds and Northumbria because i want a sandwich which they don't offer.
    Have you recieved any offers?

    Hey guys. Just so you know, Brunel has a big engineering bias, even if you do BA... However, they do teach you the technical stuff in a different way (so I heard on the taster and open days I've been to there) - in a way that the more "arty" people understand easier.
    Just to clarify, when I say 'engineering bias' I do just mean that the course will have a more technical focus than perhaps the other unis do.

    Hope that helps.

    dehutirn04 - I can't choose between those two either!
