i was thinking about enroling a design course this summer. i’m living in spain but i wouldn’t mind checking another schools in europe. i’m interested in eco-design, industrial design and exhibition design mostly. especially in eco-design. everything i know about this i learnt by myself reading books, and i would like to attend a course and get into a workshop and do stuff
so my questions are:
which schools do you suggest in these fields? (eco, industrial and exhibition design)
what is the average cost of the courses? i assume they are expensive but i don’t want to go broke.
I think I would not recommend the London Milan Summer Design Sessions. I had a bad experience with them.
I was register to the Design for Consumer Electronics course in London. 3 weeks before the beginning of the course it was canceled. That could happen with every course, but I have the feeling that this time the organization was really bad.
At the beginning they didn’t offer me to attend the same course in Milan (the Milan version was not canceled). I had to ask for it and the information came very late.
After the cancellation the course was still published online and available to register through the online form.
Although I reserved and paid the hotel through them (university residence) I myself had to email another department to ask them to cancel my reservation and to give me back the money. (Actually, after 3 weeks I still don’t have the money). Even worse, I had to pay a 30 Pound administrative charge!
Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Domus Academy (DA) and Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti (NABA) in Milan did a bad job organizing this course.
