I won't say it's a bad course but they could have made it a lot better. I didn't personally liked the teaching method. Every assignments have to be done as a group. That's really bad. How can someone learn by doing a just a portion? read more

Even though I have now transferred courses from CompSci, I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in coding and working in the games industry. All the tutors were brilliant and even supported me through my transfer without making me feel embarrassed or ashamed about it. The course is hard to say the least but if you have a good work ethic and are able to focus you can fly through it. read more

Computer Science, BSc Hons FullTime

Im actually studying Computer Science for games but that doesn't show up. The course leader isn't approachable at all for starters. They told us they would teach us from scratch as if we've never programmed before, that was a lie. We get 5 lessons on Unity and then are expected to make a full game from it? The biggest issue is the fact they go on strike for 5 weeks and some even go on Holiday, they also set us assignments without being able to get support from them since they are on strike. The fact we aren't getting reimbursement for the strikes is also an absolute joke. read more

Animation, BA Hons FullTime

Value for money: none. nearly every class from the get go was 'show and tell'. u came in, showed your homework, and were told the homework for the next week - no teaching of programmes, nothing. how they can get away with a course that teaches nothing I have no idea. Teaching quality: awful. they focused on the 5-10 'chosen' students who they favoured (those who basically kissed ass) - no desire to help students falling behind or those who weren't interested in pursuing their field after uni. Personal tutor: didn't even have one. took weeks to get meetings with teachers, when you did it felt pointless as they barely helped. Course content: almost none existent, like I said previously, they taught nothing. its a practical course where programmes NEED to be taught to students - I had to practically teach myself which I could've done without getting 50 grand in debt. Job prospects: none considering I left after 3 years knowing nothing about animation except the basics. appalling read more

Software Engineering, BEng Hons FullTime

This course is for anyone that wants to become a programmer/software engineer. You don't need any prior experience in programming at the beginning, the course starts off assuming you know nothing, but don't be fooled! This is university and it quickly steps up the pace so if you dont have any make sure you study hard. Past experience will help later, though you might be a bit bored for the first few weeks as the beginners catch up. Basic IT knowledge is definitely a requirement though I'd expect most people interested in this course would be knowledgeable in this. Assuming you don't though, you'll need to know how to use Microsoft office, file explorer and your internet browser as well as knowing their way around your pc in general. You'll require some knowledge in mathematics, there is a module first year that you need to pass to continue which contains A-level and higher mathematics. Though for the actual programming you won't really utilise mathematics in your first year. read more
