    First of all what are you studying? Secondly, how much support were you given during your course, did you feel like you could always go to someone for help if you didn't understand something?

    I study film and tv and I think I got a good level of support.

    I was on the Contemporary Lens Media course, before I left for health reasons. I did enjoy it to begin with, you learn a lot of interesting things. But it depends on what you're focused on.

    I found that if you're a Moving Image focused person, you'll find yourself alienated, as a lot of people take the course mainly to do the Photography aspect. Most of the people on my course were like 'I've never done film, I wanted to see what it was like'.

    Oh, and there are a lot of rules to filmmaking that they don't teach you, but they teach you all the rules of photography. Guess that's biased in photography's favour?

    I was in the Thomas Parker House for my course, and it's since moved on-campus. It's probably better now, but I didn't rate it too highly.

    You'd be better off with more than just my opinion. I only did the course for around three months before I left.

    I hated some of my flatmates too, so I don't think that helped much.


    If you're focusing mostly on one aspect of the course, you'd be better off doing that specific course (if you're interested in Moving Image mainly, I'd suggest choosing Film Studies).

    I have a couple of questions.
    The first is how much are the posters in the poster sale? (Everything else that I'm interested in for the welcome week is free as far as I know - the fairs). The second is how would you rate the gym? I'm considering joining the gym but I also want to learn kick-boxing or different gym classes. :/
    I'm taking Film and TV. What's it like, as a whole? I know you said that you felt like you got a good level of support earlier.

    well if I remember the posters were about £3 or slightly moor for a big one.
    I only went in the gym ones but it seemed to have most things no punch bags or anything like that but every thing else you would expect.
    as for film and TV the work is split between practical and theory modules. in first year you do both single cam witch is short films and multi cam witch is in the tv studio.

    I've enrolled yesterday and there wasnt any timetable on any blackboards? But i'll check again this monday as the supposed dates for undergraduates enrollment starts then.

    My previous university didnt allow ua to choose our classes or timetable or anything. It's a determined set of classes and time for each student so once i register i just basically click "ok" a hundred times at the portal and i'm done. That's why i'm a bit clueless when it comes to this as i have never done this before.

    Thanks for your help!! I appreciate it so much

    Night life is good, always things going on from tuesday-saturday. In general, the female to male ratio is probably a close 50/50, but it all depends on your course.
