Tutors were obviously confused when teaching content some lecturers would skip over important details for assignments others would give false information about hand in dates and requirements for essays and this just made the whole experience a lot more stressful!
Love the course and the tutors! Placement is the most valuable experience and the fees are reasonable! The university also covers all travel expenses to placement and offer lots of great grants and bursaries!
Excellent placement opportunities and majority of lecturers are excellent and very enthusiastic! I feel some content may be unnecessary and some other topics should take more priority. But I thoroughly enjoy the course and is definitely helping me on my way to becoming a teacher and improving my knowledge of the job.
The teacher tutors are genuinely lovely. I've only been slightly less than satisfied with one or two, the rest are so very good at communicating ideas and making you feel at ease. The content of the course is very informative and helpful, and there are only some lectures that I felt were not necessary! My personal tutor is also very good and we get on very well, meeting regualarly.
PT - I barely saw my tutor over the three years, my tutor changed in my third year, this meant that my new tutor was to write my personal reference, despite not truly knowing who I am.
Most of the teaching is impeccable, I do think that some of the content let down the teaching though - this is because many of the seminar sessions were read off the PowerPoint, meaning I could have just stayed home and read it myself.
Job prospects are great though! Because of the practical training we receive, trainee teachers are in a good position.
