There is not nearly as much classroom experience as I had hoped! The teaching really varies depending on who is taking your seminar and the lectures can be painfully dull and vague. A lot of the stuff we learn way in advance of the essay in which we have to use it. The content of the essays we have to write is not always relevant to practice. Placement is where you learn everything but they do not prepare you well in terms of what paperwork you actually have to compete and get signed off at placement, they just give you your PAD (practice assessment document) and say "make sure you read it". There are also only two placements per academic year so if you get one you don't like your only option is to find a spoke placement (where you organise yourself to get experience in an areas related to your allocated placement).
I'm currently not paying tuition fees and would not pay £9250 per year for 1 to 2 lectures and 1 to 2 seminars per week for only 15 weeks of the academic year!
