    UNI

    Near to my home town so it is easy to go back and forth and not travel a long distance and rack up expenses. It had the degree I wanted to do which not many offered. It offers a lot of good facilities and societies to choose from.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Excellent. You get to choose added courses to also take that aren't just your degree subjects which allows you to have a bigger range of knowledge. Not all courses have exams which are good. It offers different variations on being examined such as quizzes and essays and exams.
