Love this course. Some lessons are a little repetitive and pointless but that’s university.

Teaching quality is adequate yet there needs to be better communication between lecturers. Personal tutors don't really get involved, only seen ours once or twice in the whole year.

No support offered or given when asked for. Blamed for trying to contact for help. Did NOT teach, just discussed their opinions and life stories. Would not explain assignments.

Other than my academic tutor (IW), the majority of other staff read off power points and gave me nothing else that I couldn't have received from looking at the power points at home.
