    I want to study ceramics, preferably with the possibility of learning other crafts and gaining some general design skills too. Which courses would people recommend?

    I'm not bothered about the qualification so much as gaining useful skills. I'm a mature student, and I'm already making and selling my work, but want to go a lot further. I've already made my UCAS application, but it's not too late to change it if necessary....

    Currently my choices are: Plymouth College of Arts, Hereford College of Arts, Brighton University, Cardiff Metropolitan, and University of the Creative Arts.

    Hi,

    I studied Fine Art at Plymouth College of Art and had friends on the 3D Design Crafts/Ceramic & Glass courses. The craft facilities are really impressive and because the students are all creative it has a really buzzing and inspiring atmosphere. Plymouth is in a fantastic location as a city by the sea which a lot of students find to be a huge influence.

    Students had loads of opportunities to sell their work at various events in Plymouth and nationally and really benefited from the opportunities to collaborate with other departments and expand their knowledge of their craft and individual practice.I really enjoyed my time as a student at Plymouth College of Art.

    I hope that helps with your decision making!

    Best wishes,

    Thank you... PCA is actually already my number one choice! I currently live in Cornwall and have been to an open day there. I was really impressed with the quality of work by the students, and it was gloriously well resourced!
