University Education For The Creative Industries

What Uni? Student Choice Awards 2020

The best private creative industries institution in the UK

Futureworks has been recognised as the highest rated creative industries private institution in the country and the third best all-round private university by WhatUni.

This prestigious honour is extremely important to us because it is the result of votes and ratings submitted by the people who matter most – students.

We are obviously very proud of this award. It is testimony to the hard work put in by all the staff at Futureworks who are dedicated to making the Futureworks experience enjoyable and fulfilling for students.

WhatUni reviews, combined with the annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards, paint a detailed picture of what students can expect when choosing a university.

Here are some of things our students have said about us recently on the WhatUni site…

★★★★★ I have really enjoyed my years at Futureworks, even though there is a lot of work expected of us on our course, everyone is there to help us through whenever we need it and with whatever issues we face. I would recommend the university over larger ones as the personal help from the tutors have been invaluable.
Eleanor, Game Art BA (Hons) student

★★★★★ I’ve really enjoyed my experience at futureworks. I feel like the small class sizes and the one-on-one experience you get with tutors is something you wouldn’t get at another university and I feel like I wouldn’t have enjoyed another uni as much due to this.
Holly, Independent Filmmaking BA (Hons) student

★★★★★ My uni experience at Futureworks so far has exceeded expectations. The tutors are amazing in that they have extremely extensive subject knowledge to answer any questions even if not relevant to the specific topic at hand. They are also really friendly and approachable and seem to make everyone comfortable. The facilities are amazing so far, will be introduced to more equipment through the course but even the starting selection is to a high standard.
Charlie, Audio Engineering and Production (Hons) Student
