Surveys

The last National Student Survey (2011) of final year undergraduates confirmed that we are one of the highest scoring specialist art institutions in the country with an 86% overall satisfaction rate.

A recent survey was undertaken (Creative Graduate Creative Futures, 2009) tracking career trajectories of students 5 years after graduating. From the responses received over 75 percent reported that they were employed in the Creative Industries sector.
