IT course. The work that is given is fairly standard, you are givin an introduction to the topic and then you're expect to "make" your own miniature version (I.E learing HTML and CSS you're expected to make a website with those skills). You will be expected to do some theoretical exams however that's kept to a minimum. The biggest problem you may face are the resource materials. For example; at one point we were taught how to use an SDK (Torque 3D) in class and we were expected to carry out a project using that SDK with the only problem it could only done within uni becuase there was no student version with the licence costing $34.95 (yes, USD + $39.95 for Torsion).×

The facilities at bucks are fantastic, the library is modern and well organised with great access to all useful academia in hard copies and via online journals which would normally require payment.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
