  • First of all, I would like to say that the university is very small with a undergraduate student body of just over 3000 and less then 900 postgraduate students, so, the facilities and resources are quite limited. The Learning resource centre and library is open monday-friday from about 8am-9pm as opposed to 24hours. The gym is small and is open for about 6 hours a day. I studied Hospitality and Tourism Management, the course was made up of several generic business and industry specific modules, some were interesting, while others seemed like a random collection of topics. But most of the lecturers were industry experts having worked in management or director level in hotels or tour operating companies.
