      The course itself is versitile in teaching us the thing we may have forgotten in school or not necessarily paid attention to.

      Some content drags on a lot when it’s not needed, and sometimes doesn’t feel like we’re being taught at University level.

      Not what I expected, as it is worst. The course is unstructured in the sense that they use our year to test out new ideas even if it fails. Module leaders always changing the structure of the course, even though it should have been done before the module guide was released. They are also unwilling to help. Although, some tutors are great and very helpful. Not much one-to-one help at all, some tutors do not even reply to emails. Content on the course is not very difficult, however it is boring and not really engaging with students. Way too much group work and presentations with a shared grade, which is horrible if some group members are not willing to participate or even attend. Feedback on assessments is very poor and weak. Teachers are not willing to provide feedback apart from 1-3 sentences. No help given on how to improve or understand the errors which were made.

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.
