My bachelors degree was very quality taught. A lit of emphasis is on developing students with skills to work in teams and independent. This degree is what you out in. If you work hard and attend classes you can get very good grades. Loved it here read more

They make you do some stupid 'challenge' first thing for an entire month. I came here to study my specific course not mess around. TBF I realised I didn't like it at UCLan entirely not just the course - thats why I dropped out. read more

I am really enjoying the course and I adore my tutors. The only thing I wish the course could change is for students to have more chance of focusing on the area where they want to work rather than doing other things they are not too interested in. read more

The course is really good and includes a lot of extra things you can learn such as databases and security. The games development course uses a custom engine made specifically for UCLAN which helps teach the basics read more

90% of 1st year was covering old ground from my games design college course but anyone new to the subject will find it more enjoyable. 2nd year has better ability to specialise but there is a lot more work to do outside the classroom. 3rd year has only 2 projects but on a much larger scale and they can be presented at the UCLan exhibition. The tutors are too carefree and brush over some topics but are mostly very pleasant. Equipment and studio could do with an update but it is sufficient. read more

Course is okay. Most of the tutors are horrible to talk to, as they will most likely will not help you, but be rude to you instead; whilst the other half are the opposite. The course overall is okay though read more

Most Teachers are unorganised, don't listen to students opinions. Hand out YouTube videos instead of actually teaching us. Awful computers and software that breaks a lot, my computer at home is way better. Not sure what £9000 is going towards each year. read more

I love the course I am but it does have its downfalls. Teachers do not communicate with each other and students enough and they can be very disorganised. And £9,000 a year for it? Nah it's not worth that much, the computers don't work half the time read more
