MSc Data Science Chose this university because my course here had good modules. The course is fast-paced and you have very little free time right from the start. Lectures are mostly online and some labs are offline. Teaching quality is good but most of the content has to be self-learned. The course has a strength of over 100, and so personal tutoring is impossible. Even so, all the professors are approachable and always make an effort to clarify your doubts. Job prospects are apparently good but there is a lot of competition. read more

It is sure that some of the modules are not documented properly as it should be. Furthermore, we were given such a short notice, few weeks before the start of the semester regarding our course would not be qualified by the BCS organization due to the sudden changes in the modules structure. The structure of the whole year academic is not carefully planned ahead causing a lot of clashes within the schedule. To be even more surprised that the personal tutor here is unlike other UK university does not have a introductory session, resulting most students are not aware of who is their personal tutor and the purpose of having personal tutor. read more

Some modules were taught well and had great content while others were a bit of a disaster. While courses each year should be around thw same difficultly level there does not seem to be much consistency with this especially when it comes to coursework. For some modules coursework is easy and takes little time with a weight of 40% of the module. Others are very difficult, take more than the recommended time and are worth 20% or less. read more
