Interior Design, BA Hons

I do not see a point in having a personal tutor, when they are only there for your personal issues unrelated to your submissions. Teaching quality would be 5 stars but chasing up some tutors is a challenge (for example teaching days are Mondays and Fridays - this tutor won't reply to your emails until Friday and if you got burning questions before submission, you best off jumping off a cliff with your questions.

If I had the chance I wouldn’t have picked this course at this uni, the opportunities were only given to the same individuals over and over again and the other left on their own. They have complete favourite and that becomes so obvious over the 3 years that the rest of the course don’t feel like they are worthy. Then when it comes to picking people for certain things they always pick the same people and give them multiple chances for things, again leaving the rest behind. It’s really a course like this has became so segregated with who’s the best and who isn’t. I really wouldn’t recommend this course, go somewhere else!
