The course was very interesting, providing many potential job opportunities, however I don't think any degree could realistically be labelled 'a value for money' at £9k+. read more

The course didn't inspire me as much as it probably should have - I found myself doing the work because I had to and not because I enjoyed it and wanted to achieve. Most tutors are very good though - I started working part time to improve job prospects as the course does not assist you in this. read more

I love this course and all the staff on it. All staff members are so passionate, interesting and dedicated. There's a lot of consideration for the student's personal circumstance. I have not got an Academic Advisor for some reason - must have been due to my change in course - which would be handy but hopefully that is easily sorted. read more

You have to pay for the majority of your books on the course, making it not value for money compared to engineering for example who pay the same tuition fees but receive access to multimillion pound equipment read more
