Enjoyed the teachers and the course content, wasn’t a huge fan of the amount of theory as I came into the course expecting it to be more physical but I’m glad I learnt what I did

My advice to future students is: Absolutely read up on the course you’re planning on doing, don’t just pick something based on the title

I find classes very interesting, although in first year there's a lot of theory and not very relatable classes but hold in there, it gets more interesting.

You just have to work for it

My advice to future students is: Stick it out, it’s a lot of work and time but it’s worth it in the end

Positives: The teachers are so engaging aNd look after you really well. They’re super kind and have your best interests. Also the course is very interesting and the classes are very hands on

Negatives: There is little communication between teachers and students. Placement has not been organised very well at all

My advice to future students is: Email everyone all the time, especially your teachers. Absolutely pester them for details.
