Excellent. The majority of staff are engaging, friendly and make the subject very interesting. It's also an ideal place to study as you're so close to the sea, Cornwall and Dartmoor, so perfect for field trips. Plus, you get to go to Malaysia in the second year! Only thing I must grumble about is that they often take a long time to give your coursework back to you, and the quality of feedback can vary. But don't let it put you off- it's been excellent! read more
