I love my tutors and they helped me guiding with my essay. I also hope I can meet them again in real life because the teaching quality would be better. However, they dealt with Semester 2 better after understanding that students need a live tutorial to participate. read more

The teaching was not great, and there was little communication between lecturers. Personal tutor was really nice actually, got lucky with mine. Tutorials were alright but I didn't feel like I was being taught anything by my tutor or the sessions. Job prospects wise, I've been graduated for 3 years and can't get anything more than retail so far. read more

The overall course is okay. However £9250 for little contact time and powerpoint presentations is slightly ridiculous. Personal tutor was not always helpful. The strikes went on for 6 weeks, with no teaching & the exam content despite never having been taught any has not been amended. Very poor in my opinion. read more
