Business Computing, BSc Hons FullTime

For the foundation year in computing we haven’t learned a lot and I felt like that was a whole year of nothing just to get in to the university it was a good experience to make friends in this period but I haven’t learned anything. Hopefully starting year 1 the actual course starts and It will be much better as it is not QA anymore but just the university. read more

Great course for value of money. Covers a lot of stuff and could be fun. Teaching Quality varries a lot. Some modules tutors are beyond great, while others not so much, very inconsistent. Personal tutors are helpful and hands on with supporting you. A lot of career related support as well, like job offers, real scenario assignments and lectures from employers and people in the feild. They help you find your niche of interest as well. Overall because of teaching quality, wouldn't make it my first option at northumbria. read more
