Loving my course so far. Sometimes I feel like I’m paying an awful lot to only be there 8 hours a week compared to my friends paying the same for 30+ hours of contact time. The teachers on my course seem really passionate and some of them are absolutely amazing at what they do. As you’d expect there are some I don’t get on with as well - mostly because their lecturing style just doesn’t suit me. Some modules are not what I’d hoped but again - it’s what you expect. Overall, the course is pretty intense in terms of independent work and readings etc, but I’d say that’s what any degree in this area is like. read more

*This is only a review of first year!* I'd say great if you're really interested in speech therapy and the science of language. It's definitely not a course for creative people as content can be quite dry. The amount of contact time v independent study is ridiculous (and typical of an Arts and Humanities degree) which is a big reason I would not say the degree is worth £9000 a year. read more
