What model of iPad is it? What keyboard brand is it? Can the £100 be spent on technology/art supplies (applied for computer game art) and are all lectures recorded?

I'm pretty sure that plenty of the teaching staff aren't happy with all lectures being recorded (there are major issues around confidentiality, the need for editing, etc.). The whole iPad thing is a gimmick. Go somewhere better.

Obviously it’s a gimmick, that doesn’t mean I’m not interested to know which model as it’s my first choice. This had nothing to do with the iPad but the fact that they provided the best computer games art course I could find within 4 hours from home. The recorded lecture thing is important because I dissociate a lot and I’ll orherwise need a dictaphone.

IMO, you'll still need a dictaphone. Speak to the lecturers so they can support you.

It's an Apple iPad 9.7” (5th Gen) 32GB Wi-Fi. The keyboard is Logitech and the £100 can be spent through John Smith’s bookstore on selected texts.

Thanks

out of curiosity, since the 2018 model of the iPad 9.7 was released in March for the same price as the 2017 model, would the iPad still be the 2017 model?
