"Lecturers have extensive experience in the industry!"

“The course provides a good variety of modules, which are all taught in-depth and hands-on. Lecturers have extensive experience in the industry and always have time for students who want to learn further or talk through ideas. I am on a placement now and I’m enjoying the work and accompanying challenges. There have been many occasions where knowledge I’ve used in the workplace have come directly from lectures and research at the University.”
