In the entire year of first year, I never met my tutor. Any email I sent them I got one word answers. The teaching has been poor at best. One lecturer said that YouTube can teach us all we need to know about the subject. It leaves me wondering what I'm paying £9,250 for. read more

The course is quite costly. The teaching quality is pretty good but you have to rely on yourself to study. I don't have a personal tutor so I can't rate that. The course content is overall balance in terms of difficulty and the amount of time you have to work on it. Mechanical engineering opens to a lot of jobs prospects hence the four stars with factors like where you want to work. read more
