Student Reviews

Small and relaxed classes
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

Positives: Small class sizes and a relaxed atmosphere. Negatives: Very structured program which offers little movement to diversify interest or opportunities to graduate earlier. As it is a small class program will only be taught at one point during your program.

I am liking my subjects, most of the lecturers are good and always available if you need any guidance. I had a steep learning curve but I've learnt so much and I can't wait to put that knowledge into a job.
