Student Reviews

April 2018
Year completed 2021

Positives: the tutorials are very helpful and all the lecturers reply to emails quickly. I love most about the course is placement, it was the best week of my life

Negatives: 2hr lectures, I’d prefer them to be split into 1hr x 2

My advice to future students is: Do your assignments before the due date
