    Hi,

    currently, i'm studying a BA in interactive media and i'm looking to do an MA in graphic design. i've narrowed down my possible list to either kingston or Chelsea college of art and design, primarily because of their studio based courses with a theoretical underpinning. I was hoping any graduates or current students might be able to give me any inside information on either of the two courses. Just things like what the workshops/tutorials are
    like, how are the tutors themselves? i know they are two great institutions, but i like to get as much information as possible!

    cheers in advance for any replies!

    I know nothing about kingston but I've always thought chelsea was really good for graphic design. The degree shows there can be full of cool ideas.

    I had several friends on the undergrad equivalent at Chelsea when I was studying at CSM, and the work produced was definitely good. However, I'm under the impression that the postgrad course has an entirely different ethos (since the undergrad was a lot more vocational) and has different staff. I did have a quick glance at the postgrad degree show a few years back and the work was interesting.

    In terms of facilities, you have access to all of the computer rooms throughout the college and you're entitled to use the workshops with the help of the technicians should you require them. As I'm sure you're fully aware, the campus is situated in Milbank, which is a great place to study at, given its central location alongside the Thames and neighbouring the Tate Britain.

    Unfortunately, that's all I can comment since my knowledge is limited. Similarly, I've been to the degree show for the undergrad at Kingston, but I don't know anything about the postgrad. Still, Kingston, like Chelsea, has established a good reputation, and especially for graphic design. :smile:
