I believe that I can’t fully justify a 5 star rating for teaching given it is being presented over zoom but in terms of the course itself the workload is very high and so is the difficulty. read more

Doing foundation year so can't speak for the actual course but so far it's been pretty good. Most lecturers are interesting and engaging. Some need improvement though as they will just read their PowerPoint without elaborating, leaving you wondering why you turned up in the first place. read more

It's a very interesting course and I'm glad to have chosen it however it is very intense and requires a lot of time outside of lectures. I don't like the fact that there are so many lectures but that's expected of an intense course. read more
