    Hey guys, I want to do Graphic Design at uni coming Sept. 2017.
    At the moment I've looked into Bath Spa, Nottingham Trent, and Ravensbourne.

    What do you think of these choices?
    What do you suggest?

    I'm a bit dis-interested in UAL as I've been to CSM twice (and was on one of their Art & Design Courses in 2014) and didn't enjoy it as much as I think I could've, and don't think that I will be spending my time there doing what I would like to, and I don't think it's the right place for me. Maybe I'm wrong.
    What are your opinions on LCC and CSM for Graphic Design?

    I've heard good and bad things about Brighton, so my opinion is slightly mixed.
    Please help!

    Brighton yes. Also UWE, UCA, AUB, NUA, ECA, GSA (art schools/universities LOVE TLAs)

    What are TLAs?
    UWE - University of West of England (in Bristol)
    UCA - University for the Creative Arts (in Farnham and a few other places)
    AUB - Arts University Bournemouth
    NUA - Norwich University of the Arts
    ECA - Edinburgh College of Arts (now part of Edinburgh University)
    GSA - Glasgow School of Art (NOT part of Glasgow Uni)

    I realise on rereading you were asking for English universities so the last two probably aren't options.

    Falmouth is also worth a look (but they don't have a TLA :moon: )
    Also WSA (Winchester School of Art) is part of University of Southampton and worth checking on too

    Maybe try posting in the stickied GD applicants thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4286528

    Some of the other applicants might have some ideas if you quote/tag them.
