Poor support from staff. Decent choice of subjects. No assistance in terms of career support. No practical experience provided. Great opportunity to study a degree online that you can't do elsewhere, but would probably recommend doing it on campus.

Not enough practical experience. I had to volunteer on weekends in order to ensure I got relevant experience.
