The tutors read off of slides and often offer no extra support. When they do offer advice and support it often does not reflect in grading, as if yoy follow their advice in the mark up it often says it was wrong and you lose points. It's so inconsistent. The course is so poorly planned it's disgusting,to top it all off. read more

Lots of modules to choose from so can personalise your learning experience to your interests and desired career. Teaching quality is generally good and if you have any questions/concerns staff members are fairly easy to contact. Organisation is sometimes lacking however, but if you are a proactive student this shouldn't be a problem. read more

Going through the motions best describes this course. The teachers don't care about you or your degree and only work there because they have to for money. They are the least passionate people I have ever met. And apart for my tutor David Reynolds, everyone is useless, unhelpful and don't respond to emails. Dissertation choice is the worst as you pick 5 studies out of maybe 40, most of which have little research around them and make for a poor dissertation choice and you can't pick a preference of those 5 so you just have to hope you get the one you want. Even if you do get the one you want, you'll probably not do well because Uni doesn't even have up to date free software to carry them out with and your dissertation leader will be about as helpful as a spooked rabbit desperately trying to avoid you. If I could go back in time and pick another uni, I wouldn't even consider going back here. read more
