Hi (:

Is there anyone who is doing the Contemporary Arts Practice course at Bath Spa (Sion Hill campus) who can give me any advice/information on the course??? I have been offered a place and need to firm next week, however I did not have an interview or look around this course on an open day as I originally applied for Textiles (which I didn't get a place for). Any help would be great.

Thank you!!

I have firmed my place on that course, and i went to the interview and got to look around then. They have lots of facilities and i really liked it. You are able to basically do whatever you want. im currently studying fashion and textiles, but im more textiles based, and contemporary arts allows you to incorporate textiles into you work with other mediums or just textiles if you want (i thought this was a real bonus) hope this helps

Hey Thank you for getting back to me. Sorry for the incredibly late reply, it has taken me a while to accept the choice I made!! I have firmed the course at Bath (: Your info was helpful!! That's what I thought as well in the end, it gives you so much freedom to experiment and not be limited to one area. Have you just been doing A levels?

(: A BTEC in Textiles and Fashion? I did a BTEC/Diplomary thing with different areas of Art like Sculpture etc, which I finished last year. It's quite similar to the course at Bath. Have you had your results?

Hello! I'm due to start at the same time as you. The campus itself was absolutely beautiful, very spacious but cozy at the same time. My only gripe is that it is at the top of the steepest hill (Sion Hill) known to man, haha. I chose Contemporary Arts Practice because its SOOOO diverse, you can experiement with as much or as little of any subject area. The student who took us round on the open day stressed how much freedom students had, and many people end up doing something they never would have though of doing. Thats the advantage, you're not restricted to one subject area or technique. If you're staying at Waterside or Charlton, its about a twenty minute walk to campus and a ten minute walk to town. If at Bankside, I believe that it is on the way up to the Campus and is just for Art and Design students.

Hope this helped a bit, Emma x

Hi (: Thank you for that info! Yeah the hill is steep, but I have heard there was a trial bus last year that went to Sion Hill, so hopefully it will be in September or otherwise lots of exercise! I think the diverseness of the course slightly put me off at first as I did a similar course at College, but have realised I would like to be less restricted still (: So have you had your results? What did you do at College?
