Utter crap! Do not go here if you want to truly get an education. You will not learn anything! The classes are a joke but the professors are completely a waste. They spent most of the year on strike, expecting us to somehow teach ourselves by ' doing the readngs' on line. I didn't pay a small fortune to teach myself. With only one assessment for the entire semester where the professors didn't bother to do their jobs, my work was picked apart and I was failed!! I've never failed a class of any kind in my life. This was a bad joke! This was supposed to be one of the best universities in Europe. I think that review is from the Middle Ages because that's where their teaching philosophies still exist. I think this school is a scam. They take our tuition and we get nothing! read more

The professors are almost always good except a few. The first year course content is a bit boring because it is a survey course but it gets better once you enter honors. There are more Jon prospects than you would think, from auctioneer to gallery curator. read more

Value for money? ask the government about that one, what choice do we have? Teaching quality is brilliant, we have leading lecturers in their field who are engaging and informative. Personal tutor is great, although they could do more for exam and essay prep. Course content is outstanding, covers everything from ancient islamic manuscripts to postmodernism, celtic high crosses to buddhist relics and the Italian renaissance to post-impressionism, I can't say much about job prospects as I have not looked that far ahed. read more
