First year modules so far have been not too interested and an extension of a-level knowledge but I’m hopeful for new modules in second year.

My year was the first year to do this new course layout and it shows. Feels a bit rushed and unplanned, some of the lectures were very repetitive and modules were mismanaged. Hope they work on the feedback given to improve the course for the next year. read more

Most of the professors are really interested in what they’re teaching which makes learning a lot more fun. It’s spread out between lectures and more practical elements like lab time and workshops as well and we get to learn a range of important scientific skills alongside knowledge. Lots of field trips to local and abroad areas are also very cool. read more

The course is as great on price with trips abroad included to really widen subject experience. There are still some hidden costs on this course though. Personal tutors are great, eager to help and to learn with you. I have never had a better experience with tute staff. The course lectures however left me disappointed, often rude and brash, uninterested in students, allowing conflicts, giving poor instruction and little to no guidance regarding hand in dates and day to day activity. Some were *great* but unfortunately their flare was far extinguished by the others. For me it was the coursemates and personal tutors who made the degree possible. read more
