    Does anyone here study this course? What is it like?

    Also anyone planning on applying to this course? Why did you choose this over computer science?

    Yea I applied for this course to start this year, I choose it because well looking at other courses such as computer science it was all mostly theory based. This course is basically all piratical and hardly no exams. The course looks to be like a simulation of a real work place environment instead of sitting and reading books all day trying to memorize stuff.

    Ok so in his words:

    Positives
    • The best part was the practical nature
    • It's super hands-on
    • Real work experience with real clients developing real projects
    • Networking is brilliant, meeting with potential employers and placements gives you a jump ahead of all the CompSci grads
    • Lecturers are generally good

    Negatives
    • The course is still in its infancy so organisation can be atrocious. However he was in the very first year of the course so this is probably more extreme in his case
