Student review
Course was good balance of practical and theory. As an accelerated course it requires commitment and good time management to manage the work load. A great introduction to all areas of practice and sets you up for entering the profession.

Student review
Teaching staff not sensitive to the demands and pressures of the high workload within this course. Limited support provided for difficulties encountered. Very poorly organised, compounding stress for students. Slow to return assessment tasks and limited feedback made it difficult to improve and therefore benefit from assessment. Mostly good content in lectures and practicals.
