More about Angus
What made you choose to study at NTU?
“The course was the main reason I chose to study here at NTU. I got a good impression from all the tutors I met at open days and at my interview. The structure of the course appealed to me since it gives you the freedom to explore lots of different avenues in graphic design and create your own path. I’d also heard great things about Nottingham as a city.”
What have you enjoyed most about your course so far?
“The progression I’ve made through each year and the variety of topics I’ve covered. There’s a great sense of community amongst the students and staff which has made the whole experience enjoyable even through times of stress.”
Has the course included any guest speakers?
“We have regular guest speakers visit each Wednesday, these are a mixture of professionals and NTU alumni who have gone on to have great success in the industry. Two that come to mind are Jonathan Barnbrook, who discussed the making of David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, and also Alex Fowkes, a former NTU graphic design student, who talked about being commissioned to work for Sony Music and Urban Outfitters.”
How do you find the course staff?
“They all have experience in the industry. There’s a good mix of tutors and staff who each have knowledge in a specific field of design, so you can always find someone who help you for a certain project.”
What do you enjoy most about studying and living in Nottingham?
“It’s a great city for students to live in. It has everything you need and it’s a good transition into city life from someone who comes from the countryside.”
Why would you recommend studying Graphic Design at NTU?
“You get the right balance of attention and tutoring. Over the three years you’re treated in an increasingly professional manner which helps prepare you for life after education. You learn so much in such a short space of time.”
