CIPR Approved: No

Offers placement year: No

Overall:  4

Teaching/Lecturers:  5

Support available:  4

Extra Opportunities available: 3 – Work experience is compulsory in year 2 for a four-week period. The college will not find this for you and you must find it yourself, although you will be provided with links and useful resources.

Accommodation: 3- Expensive, as its London. Halls roughly depending on how central to London are at least £150 per week. Note: most will require you to have a travel card for bus and tube travel as no accommodation is walking distance from the campus.

Facilities (including library): 5 – the library is amazing, and is the biggest fashion library In Europe, holding books covering a vast array of fashion subjects.

Nightlife: 5 -Its London! Nightlife is fantastic, with plenty of choice for whatever you’re into, as well as late openings and many locations to check out.

Socials/Societies: 2 – the Uni holds little in the way of social events, but being in such a big city, you can normally be entertained with friends you make. There are a number of societies though.

Students Union: 3 – light and airy, plenty of space and a good selection of food and drinks.

Overall, this course will provide you with brilliant lectures that really know what they are talking about. Both of my lecturers, who I mainly am taught by are from industry and have a mass of experience. A brilliant course.
