First off, I would like to point out that many people are going to say some pretty nasty stuff about this school out of spite because they come into the programs expecting a walk in the park and an easy degree and then because the standards are very poor to begin with, the students do not make any effort to achieve quality work or attempt to be held to any standard. Don't get me wrong, there are a few students who honestly want to put in a hard day's work and make the best of what they are given to work with but are only held back by some of the poor teaching styles of the teachers employed by this institution. Trust me I go to this school and am working hard to become someone who can be employed in the fast-moving, high standard film industry in Hollywood.
So with that being said, the teachers here are ,at most, mediocre. There are alot of things you have to learn on your own, and I'm not talking about those minute details that you are supposed to find in the book, I'm talking about things that you really cannot learn unless you are shown or told. There are many students who enroll in the program just to get the macbook pro that is offered (which the student pays $3300 for and can be found for almost half the price elswhere) and then leave the program. So your classes are full of people who just want a new laptop and could not afford a lower price up front so they signed up for school. Then when you get into 'advanced' classes the people who have made it that far only stay because teachers almost refuse to give bad grades because if students stay in school then the school receives more money.
I plan on graduating soon but i fear my degree will not reflect well on me and that Collins College may be a reason that I don't get a job. The quality of my work is not awesome because I don't have anyone to really show me what I am doing wrong.
Again the concepts are good and the work would be pretty good (this applies to most students) if we were given good equipment to work with. I am not trying to hate, but if you are planning on going to Collins College for any type of degree, If you are serious about your career, I strongly recommend that you consider looking elsewhere for a more professional education and one that will be taken seriously in your career field.
