Lovely small campus, very personal approach by lecturers and the content was mostly good however there was a lot more that should have been covered during our prac and internships. I believe it is in the practicum experience that the most valuable learning is gained so teachers chosen to mentor students should be of the highest quality, unfortunately that wasn't always the case.

It was a very thorough course, a lot of theory balanced with a frequent placements in great schools. The content is taught by well experienced qualified and qualified teachers - some of which are still teaching in a primary school. All of the information learnt is up to date and I feel completely prepared to begin my career as a teacher.
