Online lectures are not as good quality so are not as good value for money, and we cannot use library's etc. Teaching quality is good overall but some lecturers are not as good as expected. Personal tutor is not very involved, only meets when required once a term for 5 mins. Course content is similar to all maths degrees. Job prospects are as good as most other universities. read more

£9000 a year for that? What a rip off. The lectures don't care about the content, they aren't passionate. They just want to shove it in your head as fast as possible, expect you to remember everything for an exam and one module (computing) the guy doesn't even teach you it! Alevel was enjoyable and fascinating, but the stuff they were teaching would make anyone passionate about mathematics never want to do it again. They need to make it more interesting and enjoyable. One of my lectures never even looked at anyone or talked to anyone. He would come in write on the board, everyone would copy it down, then he left. Everything he was writing down was online so I didn't even need to turn up to them. I already had what he was going to write. Another module was a new one, changed but very similar to one students kept failing every year. This is probably because of how badly it is taught. I don't blame the lecture for this one. There is far too much content! I could go on. read more

Fantastic course a lot of the lectures you really warm to quickly and makes learning easier as you're in a friendly environment. However I would recommend looking at the online notes before the lecture or even taking a copy of the notes with you. Also take guidance from the actual lecturers and keep on top of the homework they hand out. read more
