It is immersive and students require practicing masters to embed knowledge through practice.

First City UC provided the best 3+0 course during my time. The study environment was great and inspiring. The structure of the course was well organised and we had great tutorial sessions and lectures. We even have our coursework accessed by lecturers from Nottingham Trent University. The course materials were very relevant to the industry requirements. I found my first role as an interior designer after a week after I graduated. I have no problem looking for a design job because the course prepared me for the industry.

I was especially attracted to the twinning programme offered by KBU as the university college was known then, as it offered me a pathway to complete my final year in the UK. I enjoyed the friendly environment at the campus and the lecturers who were very attentive and responsible in ensuring that the students succeed in their studies.
The college had a friendly environment, as most of the lecturers and staffs were always courteous and warm to the students. They were also very approachable, which made the students feel comfortable in getting their advice and guidance. I would recommend First City UC because they have courses which had been designed to focus on really important fundamental knowledge.

Studying at First City UC has given me more focus in achieving my goals in life. First City UC has assisted my friends and I to get employment even before we sat for our final exam.
