As a 3rd year student, the teaching for several modules during my time at the university have left much to be desired, and the quality has been particularly harmed by Covid-19 restrictions. However, there have been a few modules which I have found exciting and relevant to my interests, and I have enjoyed that aspect of my course thoroughly.

This puts me off computer science, probably the worst learning experience I have ever had. On assignments lectures, supervisors and tutors give you completely different advice and you'll be going round in circles.

Very poor course. None of your teachers will learn your name. You’ll never get that 1 on 1 teaching u get in high school. Barely any interesting lab classes. Some lab advisors don’t know what they’re doing or what’s going on. Especially in the team project modules, the whole module is a mess and extremely unorganised

Teaching quality is poor. Lecturers have no passion in their material and lecture times are too far apart and at stupid hours 5pm - 7pm
