    Well to be frank;Man met teaching is S*** ,i only choose because they offer a placement year and has cheaper fees than Man uni . Your first year results do count in securing a placement year with a reputable company which will stand you good stead in the future. I dont really think it matters which uni you graduate from as long as you work hard and its recognised.

    The course itself doesn't demand much commitment..i only started revising in the last 5 weeks before exams and came out with a great results considering i went out most days and attended minimalistic lectures.

    Not sure what the stats are on employability

    I got BCC 3UMS (Roughly one or two marks) away from BBC and the B very close to an A
    Do you think it will affect me on placement year/ internships ?

    yeah it shouldn't really be an issue , but if you want a really good placement just make sure you get a top grade in your first year cos it will be based on that..tbh its not even difficult to get a 1st..

    That's lovely ! Are the lecturers supportive, do they explain well etc.
    And how long is it from Daisy Bank halls to All Saints roughly ?

    hey its kool. Some lecturers are ok , some you wont understand. I probably learnt more myself than i did at uni.
    I have no idea. Shouldn't be more than 10 mins cos its on campus.Im living out this year so not quite familiar with the surroundings.
