I am enjoying my course, the school of biology is really well organised and there are a lot of people to help you. Having a personal tutor is so helpful and I find my classes always interesting, the only thing is the information might be a bit redundant between first and second year. This course also provides so many job opportunities besides research. read more

Courses are interesting, tutors are mostly good (you'll get bad eggs at any university). It isn't as rigorous as my home institution but not everyone will have the same experience. read more
