Hello

I studied both pre-degree and degree at Plymouth College of Art, and chose this institution for many reasons. Firstly, I wanted to be in an atmosphere where everyone's creative, and found that at a specialist art college where all the courses are based around design and crafts.

All of the lecturers are also practicing designer-makers, which is really helpful when it comes to getting first-hand industry experience and advice.

The location itself was also perfect for me. The college is in the heart of the city where everything is within walking distance. There is a really unique contrast between the urban city environment, seaside, moorland and countryside here, and this can definitely influence your work asa designer. There's a bus station and a train station just a short walk from the college, making regular journeys to London, Bristol and the North.

When I studied, Plymouth didn’t have much in the way of recreational activities and places to eat that suited my tastes. Since then, there's been a fast development of many areas around the city. One of my favourite places is the Royal William Yard, where there are art galleries, studios, restaurants and bars.

We also have Drake Circus shopping centre adjacent to the college, making it really easy to do abit of lunchtime shopping! There are also plenty of beaches around Plymouth which is great if you're into water sports, or just want to relax after working in the studios. It's great to be in such an exciting and diverse place, and easy to find inspiration!

I hope this helps - good luck with your decision!

Hi Elfqueen1,

Thank you for commenting on our forum. I graduated from Plymouth University, studying Fine Art and I also completed the Foundation year at Plymouth College of Art. Having experienced both institutions, I am completely inclined to agree with all of the great points that Tom has made in the previous comment, about the institution and the city and surrounding areas.

For me personally, the Foundation course at Plymouth Art College was the ideal immersive and intensive learning experience that I needed following A level study and would recommend it to any budding creative.Following this year of study, I found that the Fine Art course at Plymouth University was perfectly suited to me, particularly as I wanted to get the best of on-campus learning in a central area, and to also experience the serenity of working in the impressive Royal William Yard studios that Plymouth University have access to.

One thing is for sure, the city of Plymouth is not short of opportunity! Good luck with your decision
