“Spent three years studying for a BSc in Computer...”

Written on: 29/03/2011

Spent three years studying for a BSc in Computer Science. There have been good and bad aspects to being at Kent, it depends who your lecturers happen to be.

One thing that does annoy me however is the way most lecturers deliver their modules. Is it really so hard to do something other than repeat what is on the powerpoint slides? Try making the subject sound interesting. I realise programming my not be the most interesting topic to talk about for 3 hours a week, but still!

On the other hand… Read Full Review

“I studied physics. ”

Written on: 14/01/2010 by P2008 (2 reviews written)

I studied physics.

The teaching was all pretty poor. It's not compulsory to produce lecture notes, teachers can turn up with a piece of chalk if they want to, & some do. Yet lectures are still compulsory to attend.

It seems like everything got put together in the 80's, badly, & was just left for decades.

Nothing's ever changed, or if it is it's too little too late.

I spent four years doing the degree with a foundation year & ended up failing 1 module in the 2nd year. They only let you… Read Full Review

A particularly bad teacher is [name removed], if you complain to him he'll just say tough & that's life, or nothing. I told him the lessons were bad & he just said go to lessons.

P2008

I am extremely surprised by your irrational comments. Even by your own admissions it appears you had no work ethic or academic commitment whatsoever. What I did glean from from your commentary is a picture of arrogance and overt self-belief in your own academic ability. To be perfectly honest, in your case I believe UKC made one overarching error and that was to let you on the course to start with. Clearly, you didn't manage the requisite A' level grades, hence your need to do an access course, but then to throw away this academic opportunity was an extremely foolish thing to do. In short you blew it and should now try hard lose your mindset that you deserve more than you got. I have sympathy for lazy students.

What a fool!

Missing 8 coursework assignments and complaining when asked to leave.

Complaining that not attending lectures is frowned upon.

Re-sitting a year, refusing to hand in coursework and still failing!

Not attending university for several weeks because you loan hadn't arrived.

Then appealing time and time again despite having absolutely no grounds for criticism...

I went to UKC and thoroughly enjoyed it. The facilities are good (all of my lectures had notes online and could be listened to via an online archive), the accommodation is good and the sports teams and social activities are great.

The teaching won't be breaking any records and Canterbury is a small city, with little in the way of entertainment. But if you didn't get in to a top university, you could do a lot worse than UKC.

Hopefully this gives a more accurate perspective!

The name that was removed above is the Senior Tutor.

<br/>It's also not compulsory for teachers to help students if you knock on their door.

The uni also has a problem with teachers not speaking english, which no-one seems to give a damn about.
