  • I had toothing troubles to know everything around but with time it felt fine. Stuart, my tutor was quite good and communicative and was quick to assess my work and give feedback to it. Though it was challenging somewhere but it was all a nice course to pursue. It felt amazing.

  • Although the quality varies, course and lecturers are good. QMUL library is awful but the ground floor is redeveloped and looks great it should be extended to 1st and second floor also.
