I did first year here and transferred to a different uni for second. First off, the uni is the worst ranked in the UK for biomed and it really showed. They don't offer accreditation either and for an ex-poly it's pretty pointless not to as the only unis which don't offer accreditation are Russell Groups and Oxbridge and the level of teaching here defo doesn't compare to what you would probably get there. There's only about 5 or 6 lecturers and they all rotated modules, even doing topics which weren't what they specialised in, which meant it was basically impossible to ask for help if it wasn't in their field of research. Good luck even getting a response to emails if you need anything, both the lecturers and personal tutors were pretty useless for this.
Sometimes we were only in once a week and compared to where I am now, where I've got lectures/labs/workshops everyday, the teaching just wasn't in depth and I was told when I moved to my current uni that the level of contact time we got was very poor and below average for a STEM degree. Labs were only held about 3 or 4 times a semester and linked to a certain block of lectures per module, so by the time we went back into the labs for our next session, we'd forgotten what we'd done in the previous session. Most unis offer labs at least twice a month; my uni does them once a week. The campus is also pretty neglected and it's quite far out from the city campus, so it was very dead a lot of the time. It had an upgrade whilst I was there but the vibe wasn't the same as the city campus and the social areas were severely lacking so good luck making friends.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask, but yeah I'd recommend going to a uni which offers accreditation as you'd have that to fall back on and you get more lab time, going to an ex-poly which doesn't offer it is a bit pointless.
