Very poor experience. Too many asynchronous and online things to do, while other courses or unis are doing many more in-person activities. Sometimes courses are too philosophical, too niche or too experiment/specific research focused in order to get useful and applicable lessons for our future career. I have studied elsewhere and learned much more than I have here. However, professors are friendly. But now I know that prestige doesn’t necessarily mean quality. read more

Edinburgh is a fantastic city and uni with a great reputation. However as far as the teaching is concerned the department is very unorganised. Lecturers often lack the ability to teach by more than reading word for word off a PowerPoint screen. Very underwhelming and under supportive programme through the lack of tutorial opportunities despite the high cost of uni. read more

Psychology and Linguistics, MA Hons FullTime

A waste of my money, I was promised hybrid learning only to learn that my course was fully online after I had flown over and paid for my accommodation. The Linguistics course is great but the quality of the Psychology lectures is extremely inconsistent and poor most of the time. I am paying 27,550 pounds to attend 4 Psychology tutorials in 10 weeks all virtually, which is ridiculous. read more
