Cost of Living:
Shops & Banks:
The university and course care more about the promotion of the university than the promotion of the actual students on the course. For example, a showcase to end the year where they invite university officials and university "VIPs" to see how good they think the course is, as well as potential students for the next year. A course on a subject like performing arts should give every opportunity for the students to get professional work when they finish, but they care more about their own statistics.
The only reason it was stuck through was because of the potential cost of moving to another university and to get a degree at the end if nothing else. In the second year, the whole class of students failed one part of a module, and it was insisted that it couldn't possibly be the fault of the tutors...very difficult to believe. When there was talk of taking it further, the tutors became defensive and wouldn't listen to what we had to say.
There is so much potential for this course to be a good one, however because of the fixation of getting good feedback, it consistently ignores the students best interests. A very negative end to three years of hard work. Good job DMU.
