I visited the Manchester Metropolitan Degree shows recently. I did my degree at MMU, and a lot has changed since then. I did a Textile degree which was a course focusing on either print,knit or woven textiles, I chose print. The course now is called BA (hons) Textiles in practise, this now appears to of blended with the Embroidery degree which used to be a stand alone course. The course has also moved to a new building which houses all the creative degrees, the shows were impressive with a real diverse set of work. I also very much admired the Illustration with animation course, and I think If I were to choose now Illustration would be my preference.
I have put together a small montage of the photos I took, all work can be viewed in more detail here.
