"I have found the BA course well balanced subject-wise. The choice of classes we are given each semester allows students to work in a wide variety of ways over the course of the four years. The elective classes are also great and give us the chance to explore other skills and interests alongside our main studio work. The course has a fantastic range of teachers who encourage creativity, individuality and innovation, while equipping students with strong technical skills. "
