Hi, I work in the enquiries office at Camberwell and thought it might help if I confirm a few facts about the CCW Foundation course as it sounds like you’ve heard a variety of different things and it can be a bit confusing! The course has about 580 students on it this year (Sept 11 – May 12) and we’ll be likely to have about 600 students on the course starting in September 2012. All students are based in the progression centre on Wilson Road (SE5 8LU if you want to check google map) until the end of the first part of the course (November) then students who specialise in theatre/film/tv relocate to Wimbledon college as Wimbledon has specialist theatre facilities. Everyone else remains in the progression centre (so that’s students who specialise in any Fine Art specialism, any communication specialism and 3D/Product/interior and fashion and textiles students) It might sound like a lot but the progression centre is a big building..also the building is open from 8am – 8pm so you can use the space outside of your official teaching time – as long as there’s at least 1 other student in the studio with you. I can’t comment on the halls as I haven’t visited or lived in them, but if anyone wants to know more about this – or get a student perspective on the course as well - please let me know and I’ll ask our current students for volunteers to get in touch and give you their point of view instead of a member of staff.
Now I'm moving to his city
