Student Reviews for Plymouth College of Art

Student satisfaction:
4.4 (based on 263 student reviews)

“The library is full of materials that we can make use of, like up-to-date magazine subscriptions and books that would be expensive to buy ourselves. You’re kind of expected to study independently, so I think new students should not expect a lot of help with assignments here. I personally like that approach because it gives me more freedom.”

“For me as a Photography student the facilities here couldn’t be better. There’s a booking system for expensive and high-quality equipment, and you get access to darkrooms as well as audio and video editing suites.”

About Plymouth College of Art

PROS

  • One of the most recurring comments from students is that the college provides exceptional facilities and materials for all courses, including high -end equipment such as Hassleblad cameras and graphics tablets available for rent.
  • Teachers assist students in finding work experience placements, and this is done by taking the interests and career goals of each individual to find a placement that is truly beneficial for the learner.

CONS

  • A recurring opinion about courses here is that some programmes are not as specific as advertised, and in fact teach a much more generalised curriculum.
