(Software Eng & Computing Sci are the same course) The teaching has beyond poor and put me under extreme amounts of stress when I started my placement and realized that I knew absolutely nothing after studying at Ulster (and being on a 1st) for 2 years. Lecturers often will ignore emails of questions and help, even go as far as to respond to them telling you to "Google it", often students have absolutely no idea what they are supposed to be doing as the guidance is practically non-existent. They do not teach you relevant coding practises and I had to essentially throw a lot of the nonsense I was told out the window to succeed on my placement, you will also not be taught modern or in-demand languages and software. Such as Java 8 but with no libraries and no frontend, meaning the whole class was just printing functions to the console. Teaching is VERY surface level, expect to pay for 3rd party online classes if you want to do well, because you are not getting the knowledge from UU read more

Honestly have spent more time at home and on YouTube than learning anything in class. There no reason for me to come to class and has never given me any motivation to come from extreme lack of teaching. The content is based on one thing and rarely explores other topics. read more

Animation, BDes Hons FullTime

I love animation deeply and being able to do it as a course has been what ive always wanted. The tutors are the highlight for me as besides being great at what they do, theyre compassionate and treat you with respect as a peer not just a student. The connections ive made from this course have been very helpful for my career. I wish there was more content for animations outside of 3-D but we are making progress out there. Overall I would recommend this course. read more

University cares more about diversity in the workforce than having lecturers you can understand. See Omar Nibouche, Bi Yang, etc. Incredibly difficult to understand with such hard accents, and can barely engage a class room. read more
