Reviews of American University of Sharjah
The 'Multimedia Design' program in this school is a pure waste of 4 years of your life's if your looking for a place to teach you about filmmaking. They offer only a few number of 'filmmaking' courses that produce horrible pieces of video clips that Im even ashamed to call movies. They teach very little about making movies, out of 4 years, the last 2 years only introduce "filmmaking" courses. The courses also do not even teach you about acutal 'film' production, everything is made using mini DV. You are required to study math and sciences, which doesnt make any sense in a filmmaking program. In other words.. DO NOT register in this school if you really want to be a filmmaker.Do register if you want to learn a mix of many things that will not lead you anywhere. P.S In order to be fair to the school of Architecture and Design, other programs such as Architecture, Interior Design and Visual Comunication are actually very good and ones of the best in the reigon.
This School is only designed for to teach theories, and more theories... The Program is a 5 Year program that will lead you to absiloutly nothing, unlike other Film schools in the world... They consentrate more about you being a "Math" NERD than being a "Creative Filmmaker"... In other words "This School is NOT even worth trying". Note: It's expensive for nothing.
