Student review
The course is relevant and well delivered for the most part. Some of the more irrelevant courses have been removed since I completed the degree. The university itself is prestigious and the quality of the facilities were great. However, even when I had a legitimate medical issue I was made to attend physically demanding classes and was provided with little help. Overall, it is a fine course, particularly if you intend to enter research industries.
