I'm interested in taking a BA Graphic Design (or possibly Animation) course at university, and want to know a bit more about these unis.

I'll be going to an open day for London College of Communication soon, so hopefully it'll give me more of an idea as to how the course is ran and the facilities that are available.

If anybody has any personal experiences with studying at either of these unis, or if you have an opinion on them please let me know! Anything about the tutors to the general vibes and interview process. I really appreciate it.

Heya BeeBeeFilms!

Sorry to see you haven't had any replies yet, hopefully, I can help bump the post for you. I currently study at Plymouth College of Art, where we have degree courses in both Graphic Design and Animation, which are very open and experimental in that you can work in the style that suits you.

When I was trying to decide between multiple courses, I decided to ask myself these questions in order to compare the courses/universities.

Which location provides better for what you want/ your lifestyle?
Which university has the best facilities, and which allows students longer access to both equipment and lecturers/ tutors?
Which has modules that suit you better? You can usually find module break-downs on the course page of the website or prospectus.
Where would you be happier living and studying?

Try and think of the pros and cons of each university and figure out which is more beneficial. When choosing my university, I definitely thought a lot about where I would feel most comfortable and happy, as I knew I wouldn't be working to my full potential living somewhere where I wasn't. Two websites that I found really useful when I was researching courses were Which? Uni and What Uni?, as you can see statistics for each course (for topics such as student satisfaction) and compare the courses that you're looking at easily.

Although it is not relevant to Camberwell or LCC, hopefully, this will help you with your decision.

I hope that helped!

Hi Harriet, thanks for the advice. I find it very useful as I’m sort of a point where I’m not even sure exactly what it is that i want to see in the university I hope to attend.

I’ll make sure to check out the Which? websites for more information. I’m fairly sure I want to attend a London university as I love the area. I appreciate your reply!

Hi BeeBeeFilms,

I know you wanted to hear about LCC and Camberwell but thought you might also like to hear about Ravensbourne. We are a specialised design and media university based in London.

I'm currently on the Graphic Design course here and my last two years have been really fun, although a lot of work! I have worked on different projects as well as doing competitions briefs and live briefs with companies. We have also had external and internal exhibitions. You will get to work on different types of projects to allow you to be experimental and work on different styles to figure out what you like best. While I have bene on the course I worked on projects I never would have imagined. I was able to collaborate with a sound students to work on a visual DJ project that was projected in Tate Modern. I also had the opportunity to work on a brief set by the Design Council with students from Web Media and Product Design.

Ravensbourne is an open space building so it allows for a collaborative and friendly environment. I would recommend coming to an open day to get more information.

I hope this was helpful and good luck with your A-Levels. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
