Overall opinion

It's shit and I left

Quality of course and lecturers

The course leader is clueless, firstly he let anyone on the course, when some people have actually worked hard to get a-levels. Secondly if he's only time you'll be lucky, infact you'll be lucky if he comes in at all. The course leader is the only lecture however he brings in random people to take sessions, some who don't even have a degree? Is the leader of the course even qualified to lecture, no one knows. The work isn't marked properly he just does it In front of you in some sort of sky "crit" where he bitches about stupid things like using the word whilst. Oh yeah and good look trying to transfer because he never updates the grades so its impossible to get a transcript or even a document saying you went in the first place. At least 5 people left in the first term, good look to anyone who dares to stay because even the lectures admit that it's going under, which reminds me. You have to do a tv and film module ! It's a joke, " create a poem and show it literally" sorry but I want to be a journalist, if i wanted to learn about light and cameras I would have took ba TV and film, wouldn't I! DON'T APPLY! (not even in clearing )

University life

There is one club and its decent however, who would want to go to the same club every night for 3 years? They have a lazer quest.... It's shit

Accommodation

Finally the only decent point, the accommodation was new and of a good standard, however it was a 50minute walk away from campus and the busses were shit
