The lecturers have been working hard and put so much effort even into first year studies and there is a lot of help available to those who need extra information

Taking 3 minors in first year is amazing, the only problem is now having to decide on what I want to major in, I love all of my subjects and tutors, will be sad to say goodbye!

Love the course: wide breadth of subjects but can be difficult being based in two completely separate departments that apparently don't communicate

I have never once met my personal tutor as he does not respond to any of my communication. Aside from this, my course has been really well taught and engaging.

You have to pay for the majority of your books on the course, making it not value for money compared to engineering for example who pay the same tuition fees but receive access to multimillion pound equipment

The course was very interesting, providing many potential job opportunities, however I don't think any degree could realistically be labelled 'a value for money' at £9k+.

I love this course and all the staff on it. All staff members are so passionate, interesting and dedicated. There's a lot of consideration for the student's personal circumstance. I have not got an Academic Advisor for some reason - must have been due to my change in course - which would be handy but hopefully that is easily sorted.

As a first year I felt slightly overlooked, some of the lecturers clearly thought they had better things to do than teach me and we haven’t really looked into many job opportunities yet

The course didn't inspire me as much as it probably should have - I found myself doing the work because I had to and not because I enjoyed it and wanted to achieve. Most tutors are very good though - I started working part time to improve job prospects as the course does not assist you in this.
