Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good school with great resources and facilities. But I think foundation year is bull shit. As a photography major you don’t get to take any photography classes. No one gets to take a class directly pertaining to their major unless you’re in fine arts, then you’re just lucky. Some professors are better than others and in general I like them.

I cannot stress enough how much I hate foundation year! Why do I have to take a drawing class if I’m never going to draw again? Waste of money.

The MFA Lighting Design Program is fantastic. It prepares you really well to pioneer the lighting design world right from the day you graduate. However considering the high fees, the returns on investment may be slow. Good luck!
Amenities are really good and programs are perfect and good space to working.
Many spaces are available to students working and many of computers are also available. And students are available rent macbook and laptop which is really good for who does not have. We have a lot of exiting programs to take. Also our school respect all race. And around school have a lot of stores , convienience store and restaurants which is really convienient. Moreover, the location is perfect. There are N,Q,R,F,M,4,5,6,1,2,3 lines near shchools. Transfortation is really important.
