Reviews of Postgraduate Courses

The reviews below were submitted by students currently studying postgraduate courses at UK universities. Reviews contribute towards the Whatuni Student Choice Awards, which celebrate student satisfaction in higher education and offer insight into postgrad life at university.

I'd say that the best part about my university experience was the people that I've been fortunate enough to meet. I suppose this could have happened at any institution, and I certainly got lucky. But Cardiff has an excellent reputation, so it's not a surprise that it would attract people who want to study and succeed, but also interact with others. Having said that, I am studying on a communications masters, so my experience will likely be different to other courses!

The academic staff in my school are clearly passionate about their roles, but I have found the standard of teaching to her very hit and miss from lecturer to lecturer. The course is also undergoing a transition in terms of content, and I feel like we definitely got caught in the middle of that.

The university and city both have a fantastic feel about them. I've loved living and studying in Cardiff. It's affordable, and offers an excellent study/life balance. I feel positive about my job prospects - despite Covid-19 - and feel proud to have the university on my CV. read full review
Warwick university is a big avoid!!! They like to charge the fees for facilities that are not there. The library is very dated. Tutors do not seem to care especially at postgrad level. The admin team and not bothered by class sizes being overflowed for seminars. read full review
Absolutely appalling. I have had to complain on a number of occasions, on one occasion they shared a spreadsheet containing student numbers and the fact students had failed to the whole of the university which was incredibly embarrassing and a breach of information sharing policies.

The course is completely a waste of money. read full review
HORRENDOUS
SOUL DESTROYING
I would like to add I am not some bitter person who failed and it holding the university accountable. I am on track for a distinction. I am saying it is not worth it. I have not learned a valuable range of skill I have learnt to code and how may ribs a horse has. read full review

MSc Data Analytics

QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY BELFAST

Student Reviewer - May 2020

If I had the opportunity to receive a refund for the course and start it with another university, I would do so.

This university is not providing value for money for this course, which is very negative when there is a big opportunity to recruit in this area.

The School of Maths and Physics are not prepared to admit there are issues with the course, and from a personal perspective should not be leading this course within the University. read full review
Really Really bad. I am so disappointed. I feel like I have wasted my money. I regret it so much for not quitting earlier. Now I have already taken 6 courses, do not want to leave the program halfway.

I suggest everyone, please do not waste your precious time and money on this distance learning program. read full review
I have been at the University as a student for the best part of 12 years I originally did a DipHe then topped up to degree and now doing MSc. I can't imagine going elsewhere. read full review

MSc Project Management (APM)

ARDEN UNIVERSITY

Student Reviewer - April 2020

I like my course . I am happy it’s a blended learning program but the quality of the course is not really as I expected. I also want if the uni is registered by UCAS read full review
The experience as an international student has not been bad and very grateful for the chance but I just wish they would do better in integrating paid internships that actually give you real-life experience in practising all that there is to know about the course one offers in their institution and also a restructure of assignment tasks that go straight to the point to satisfy the word limits stated. read full review
