The lecturers are good at explaining and they give as much help as you need when it comes to assignments and other work outside of the lectures. It is also a good course for leading straight into a job as the placements they offer are leading you up to graduating and starting work
Most of my work was self taught, lectures are informal however sometimes didn’t even last the full duration. I barely went to lectures because I didn’t find them substantial enough and often questioned “why am I here”. I used to not go to lectures and sit at home on moodle and read the PowerPoints and do work for myself because if I went into uni a lot of the lectures were just reading off the PowerPoint and I thought to myself “I can read I don’t need someone to read to me”. I got mostly 2:1 and 2:2 in my assignments with the occasional first, not bad for 5% attendance and a 2:2 overall when I graduated. It just shows that the quality of teaching wasn’t there if I was able to achieve this through simply reading the PowerPoints and gaining the knowledge at home. The lectures were not enriching.
