No support given for students with differences. Instead they're just shamed

The course isn’t great. It’s basically teaching slides and the lectures just reading off them. I wish I had the slides just emailed to me. Tutors don’t know/ care about you. Any issues they send you to student wellbeing. The best part is placement and is the only reason I’m still on the course but even then the uni have struggled in the past to allocate students into schools, they have a whole placement office and they can’t do just one job! Overall, if you like listening to slides with the occasional example/ experiment, with loads of essays and assignments that are not very clear about what they actually want, get on this course!

I couldnt have settled into this course better, with regular updates and close support from lecturers - im only first year and i know if i have a problem then i could easily ask for their support. Already feels like a big family.

Personal tutor is a very dull man. And I've been placed too far away for my placement.
