So far good course, some tutors aren't the best and obviously would much rather not be there, even getting other tutors to take lectures/seminars read more

second year is much better than first so far, while covid is an excuse thrown around a lot, it could have been the issue, however, there have been changes in teaching staff which could have been a huge benefit. read more

This course has been a tremendous waste of time. Many of the lecturers are not only unhelpful but also have a weak grasp of the subjects taught. The only redeeming quality would be the job opportunities provided as the university was helpful in securing a placement. The modules which where part of the course varied greatly in difficulty with some being laughably simple. The more difficult modules where also the ones with terrible lecturers. If you want to be taught by incompetent teachers reading from powerpoints like back in school, this is the university for you but otherwise, dont waste your time. read more

Overall I regret choosing this university. Since the campuses now share a common space (they are moving everything to Millennium Point area) there's no additional parking, no additional transport, and the canteens are busier (and more expensive) than ever before. Course content: generally poor value. Tutors do their best in the convoluted and restrictive framework to which they work in. Courses are shortened/deadlines extended/assessment criteria changed/etc at the drop of a hat. Lecturers are either (a) so sedentary they're complacent and just do the bare minimum, (b) blag their way through the lecture they were given just this morning to deliver, or (c) recognise the failings of everyone else so work twice as hard as a result, in the quest to give the students some actual value. Student engagement has plummeted since 2014, which is when I started. Staff turnover is quite high (see above!) so consistency is absent. Complaints about couse content get ignored. read more
