      The upside

      I like that I only have 12 hours teaching a week. Most modules are interesting. Most of my assignments are groups which is better. Feedback is limited and not personally applicable. The business facilities are modern and nice.

      Eric Wood building next to the library is a great place to go and use the computers when the library is busy. Portland building always has Macs free when the library ones are full. There are loads of facilities such as the laser cutter and sandblasting in the workshops by fletcher, that I wish I'd known about early in the year, by the time it comes up to deadlines you need to be arriving at 6am on a monday morning just to get your name on the waiting list.

      The upside

      The way they deal with the counselling seriveces for exampleu have to fill out an online appplication then wait on a list that could take up to four weeks just so they can back to you. If i require counselling i need it now not in a months time

      Academic Experience

      The actual amount of teaching time I had was a lot less than I was expecting and varied each week, sometimes we had 16 hours of teaching time a week and sometimes we had 2 hours, it depended on how much independent work we had to do at that time and what stage we were at in the course. We mainly had lectures, given by teaching members of our course and also guest lecturers, whicmade it very interesting as you could see things from different points of view. The actual course content I found very interesting and I feel like I learnt a lot which will help me in my future career. We also learnt a varied amount of content, for example we looked at the inter professional relationship side of our future career as well as the biological side, the research side and the practical side. I found the course to be moderately challenging, a lot of work has to be put in if you want to achieve well, however there is lots of support so you can always get the help you want. We were assessed in a variety of ways, including exams, reports, essays and even a leaflet. We always receive detailed feedback from our tutors on work that we have handed in telling us how to improve but also what we did well.

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.
