There is definetly a wide range of teacher quality, some are great, and some are less engaged and doesnt have a clear way of explaining.

Biological Sciences, BSc Hons FullTime

It’s a good course - work is fast paced but not so bad you can’t keep up and it’s mostly pretty interesting, but every course has one or two bits that drag a little! Lecturers are also pretty good, occasionally a little difficult to understand but only really if you’re going back over the lectures at a fast clip. There’s a lot of little weekly tests and assessments which I quite like, to help get an understanding of how well a subject has been understood. read more
