I was given freedom and provided with support and guidance to achieve and learn what was necessary, as well as what was interesting to me, specifically. I am very confident and skillful at what I do now. Lancaster helped me become good at what I do and gave me the foundation of a good life in which I can accomplish amazing things as I further develop my skills.

By rachnbob1996 On 1st March 16

Careers fair was aimed at Computer Science students, none of the employers had heard of our course and were not interested in talking to us. A lot of our modules are the SAME as Computer Science, our modules which computer science students do not do are still difficult and very technical.
