Course content is good, not much maths which is reason I chose the BA, quality of teaching is average over all modules some it’s really good some it’s not great but really depends on preference of teaching style. Job prospects are very good, another reason why I chose economics. Content is good lots of choice. read more

Just an all round bad experience, if you can go to any other university I highly recommend you do so, the lecturers don't seem to care about the subjects, the campus is dull and uninspiring and there is a overwhelming feeling that most students are disappointed but are just accepting their position rather than enjoying their experience. read more
