Allah Rakha Jatt - October 2020

Please refer to the first box. All the details lie therein. I still can't understand how this school is accredited and it is not considered a scam. What a waste of money. read full review
It has been rather dismal. The takeaway is this: in terms quality of lecture content, SOAS scores high. However, there is a high level of the incompetency, disorganisation, and overall lack of communication between the university's various departments. This one fatal flaw so much outweighs any other strengths the university may have that I would STRONGLY urge anyone thinking of applying to think twice. read full review
great, I would love to go there again read full review
Not much to do at Lincoln, absolute boring. Society isnt so great nor sports. Good university buildings but lecture/services aint up to par, need good design tutors for ma interior and architecture design. BA IAD are much better than MA IAD read full review
Terrible postgraduate experience. Have run into problems academically and lifestyle-wise from beginning to end. University shows ZERO regard for its students welfare, and its pretty apparent that they are used as cash cows, especially international students. Avoid this university. read full review
I found the university a terrible place to study, the tutors had little idea about what they were teaching and they had limited experience. I had previously completed my undergraduate degree by learning from doctors and professors who conducted active research in the field, however these tutors could not compare to this.
They did not take criticism or advice on how best we learnt and instead continue to deliver sessions in a way that did not benefit the students. They advice and content of the lectures and seminars was appalling, and had no transfer to the education setting, it was embarrassing that the course claimed to offer a specialism in SEND & Inclusion and the tutor who delivered this sessions was a Geography teacher.... I think that sums it up really.
I would never recommend this University, in fact I would strongly advise rethinking and applying elsewhere. Most people who attend this university live locally and as I was not from the area, I do believe I was stigmaised. read full review
Made one of the biggest mistakes of my life attending this school and paying it money. Will be advising everyone else not to attend. The experience has been terrible at every step along the way, from housing and housing administration to academic rigor and strength of the other students.

Housing is a rip off and not worth it, and academics are highly inadequate for a school that touts itself as #1 in the world for my field. DO NOT ATTEND. read full review
I would tell most students to avoid. I cannot speak to the social aspect as I keep to myself, but I’ll tell you that if I was ever placed in a hiring role, I wouldn’t believe that a prospective employee knew anything about the subject of their ARU degree. Overall, I’d say this place is a scam and I haven’t learned a single thing. read full review
I wish I had chosen a different univesity. If you have decent undergraduate grades I suggest you look into UCL, York, Brunel and Sussex. Despite their touted selection for students with a good undergraduate, Birbeck will take ANYBODY who is willing to pay the fees, there is no selection, it is all just a pretense. read full review
I believe this was one ofy best experiences I have ever had. I got meet some great people (lecturers and Coursemates). Everyone in Leicester treats you very well and will provide all the support you need especially during yhis coronavirus time. I am glad that I came to this university. read full review
