I highly recommend this Uni, especially for distance programmes! Go for it! show less

Do not do the teaching course; they will fail you and then say it was all your doing. They do not practice fairness and equality in their school. I was bullied by a teacher and when I sought help I was ignored. They did not endeavour to support me throughout the course. They will take your money and then choose not to help you. It has the lowest passing rates because they fail to help their students. You will rack up a load of debt for nothing if you study with this university. show less
