I really enjoy that we can select modules from both departments. This allows us to take more modules of our choice compared to our peers. The combination of CS and maths is also very in demand and the teaching is excellent (especially on the Maths side the CS side sometimes has some issues) read more

Some of the lecturers are really amazing, can teach the content in such an engaging way that it's hard to forget it. Some others aren't as good, specifically in the more maths-y units. Can't be bothered to make decent notes, so they just get you to read annoying wordy e-books instead. Personal tutor wasn't especially involved in year 1, mostly just sat in the room during team meetings, and you only see them two times in the entirety of year 2. read more

Course was okay though I don’t think it is worth that much money. I know that the Bachelors from this university would open a lot of doors for me but I don’t feel that the teaching quality I receive and the personal attitude are worth the 9k per year. Most of the lectures are very good but a bit unorganized. Some of the lectures are just there to make fun of the students and bully them. My personal tutor was very good though. He helped me a number of times and was very involved in my studying process. The courses themselves provide a lot of useful knowledge although I found some of them to be a bit irrelevant or too concentrated into a certain niche of CS to be 1st year courses. read more
