LCC graphic design
Seemed very professional. Very focused on typography. They have the biggest printing room in ual (two whole floors). Lots of international students- good with diversity (probably a lot more competitive since international students pay more). The area of elephant and castle and the outside of LCC isn’t that nice. The interior of LCC isn’t that bad but doesn’t give the same feeling camberwell and chelsea do.

On the same day as the Chelsea open day I went to the Central Saint Martins open day for graphics communication. The atmosphere was very difficult. It felt highly prestigious in comparison to the other ual campuses I had visited. The presentation given was slightly boring however and made me question if I could handle each lecture being similarly presented. The standards were very high - students were going international to do work and such. Winning competitions and having in depth understanding about designers seemed key to the lecturer I had so I will bare that in mind to learn more before my interviews.

Went to Chelsea graphic communication open day. Felt like a really good cozy atmosphere. It was right next to Tate Britain and had a nice location where it wasn’t too busy.
Right now I’d put it in my 2nd/3rd choice. I need to check if Camberwell could do a better job since I heard it’s very good with graphic communication.

Went to goldsmiths university open day. Saw the computing course, the design course and a bit of art.
The design course was very creative and seemed like the briefs set were extremely vague. The campus was nice but reminded me of my old school. It was very close which was good. The students looked ok. Surrounding area outside the campus was like East Croydon.

Went to the new designers show (pt 2).
Both Falmouth and Hertfordshire universities caught my eyes.
Hertfordshire combined graphic design with fashion- working with prada and politecnico de milano in a project.
Falmouth had a wide variety of highly talented illustrators. (First video and picture is Falmouth's set up).
I was really put off swindon college of art. You can see why in the last two images.
I still wish to stay in London as a priority though so Falmouth and Hertfordshire will likely stay behind csm in my list.

Went to LCC (London College of Communication) with my friend Jade. First impression was that the campus looked pretty ugly and old on the outside. The inside was better but me and Jade searched inside more and there was parts that made me wonder where all the money the students paying ended up. Looks aside, the work was mainly design based and there was also illustration. Both courses looked good. The design course took up the majority of space.

Went to Goldmiths art show
The campus was the nicest I've seen yet.
I feel like the art was also very good. There was a high quality in each piece. Central saint martins had a wider range of art types and seemed to have more students overall but goldsmiths looked really good and close to home so I wouldn't have to get accommodation if I end up going.
I still don't know how to feel about spending £9000+ to do a course in art though.
