Solent or UCLAN? Watch
Can you guys help me decide. What have you heard about them? If you study there, what is it like?
I'm taking Film Production.
Thank you Loves!
As for UCLan. As a current student studying Nursing, although it's a very different course, I hear and see a lot about the arts, and film production within the university. They're constantly posting things in the college magazine, and the SU website about productions, research and events from all different performing arts courses.
For extra-curricular events and things, I'd say it's widely represented within the university and around the city, but as for course content etc. I could not tell you
I also think preston's quite accessible really, i regularly go to manchester/liverpool and theres trains to many major cities.

I didn't do film but I did accidentally walk in to a film lecture once and it seemed quite good.
Solent don't have a great reputation that is true but it is a pretty good film course and I think it is quite respected in the field. Courses at Solent are also quite vocational so you actually do things and don't just learn the theory.
Southampton is a great place to live and being a little closer to home so you can go home at the weekend , which is nice to know while you settle in. There are many clubs and bars jesters is good for a really messy night and I've herd pop world is good (but I think it's a gay bar) but that's only a couple there is also a good shopping area and live music can be found most nights not to mention big bands (like subways for example or frank turner) often play the guildhall I loved my time at Solent male sure you live in halls and you'll have a great time. I know I did.

I have decided to go to Southampton Solent due to costs of travelling. It would cost be £150 to travel to UCLAN each time but only £35 for Solent. I know it seems silly to pick a University that way but I don't think I would have £150 spare every time I come home for holidays or the odd weekend (if I needed too.) I am more likely to have £35 spare. It is a shame that because of this I have not visited UCLAN but have put it has my second choice. If I turns out I do go to UCLAN instead of Solent then I would speak to them about travel costs - I have spoken to them before about this for open days but did not get a response.
It was a hard choice but I think I made the right one.
Thank you again.
