I was looking over the DMUs web site and i spotted a number of mistakes. From web design errors to inocrrect information. They also made some admin errors with info they sent me.

So out of interest what things have you spotted as you look arround?

I have a prospectus which lists a degree in "Computig" in big letters, but that's all so far.

On my university website it says 'Animal Mathematics' where it should just be 'Mathematics'. The tutor says it's just a copy pasting error and the 'Animal come from 'Animal Behaviour'.

you should have corrected it and sent it back

The course's website I applied to for next year had loads of mistakes in it too. It makes you feel a bit uncertain about the university ...

i feel better knowing that they do make mistakes. They are human and basically i see the funny side of it so it makes me less nervous about going there.

Did you previously think that they would be you or something if you made a mistake?
