Year-on-year fall in applications to art and design courses
I have a BA (hons) in design from Edinburgh Art school, I passed it about 10 years ago, it only ever led to offers of working for nothing from company’s offering experience, an impossibility when you have amounted so much dept. Out of everyone I went to collage with it was only the architects that ever went on to any sort of professional design work. In my view furniture, ceramics, costume, fashion etc. Is a total waste of time, you will learn very little and company’s know this. I studied furniture design and would have been much better off going down the city and guilds route. I think many people wanting to work creatively, or just with their hands would be much happier and wealthier going this route too. Unfortunately most people are pushed the uni-route by nieve parents that do not understand that collages are businesses that are more interested in taking your money than providing well rounded courses designed to help you become a professional. I left well before course fees. The type of dept. kids are now looking at when leaving collage is life ruining to the ordinary man if it leads to nothing at the end.
I re-trained and now work a manager on a construction site, the sad thing is that the only other degrees held on my site is a BA in fine art, by the girl who cleans the site toilets and a BA in philosophy a one of the temporary labourers.
