Waste of Four Years!

Long, long overdue! Just finished a four year Abertay Psychology degree (2.1) and it was a joke. We only started to study mental illnesses in the final year and we only did that for one term!! Not only did I learn most of the degree from Youtube, I could have the done the entire degree in 3 years and read full review

Long, long overdue! Just finished a four year Abertay Psychology degree (2.1) and it was a joke. We only started to study mental illnesses in the final year and we only did that for one term!! Not only did I learn most of the degree from Youtube, I could have the done the entire degree in 3 years and spent the 4th year learning the actual skills that I need t work. When I took my Abertay degree to another Scottish University down the road, I was told I would have to take a "generic" version of a post grad program because the degree I took at Abertay did not include enough relevant study for me to take their Psychology Post grad program. For the extra £5,000 in student loans + living costs, I had to endure an extra year of useless extreme far left propaganda, which is really just included to keep a bunch of unemployable far lefties in work at Abertay. There is a reason Abertay was rated by students as the second WORST university in Scotland and it is the far lefties who are to blame for that disgust. The lead Psychology lecturer told us in 1st year that 80% of us would not get a job in Psychology. 14 of the class tried to transfer out to other Uni's there and then. With a good 2.1 Abertay degree, you will struggle to get into a postgrad program at a proper Scottish Uni so to get the NHS/private post grad skills one needs to get a good job, don't get done, don't get Dom just get into any other University besides Abertay to get that proper degree and a proper future. Abertay is the "Poundland University" of the UK, you get what you pay for so don't be surprised if your Abertay degree becomes "faulty" a few weeks after you have it. No returns, no refunds! show less

The knowledge gained at Abertay has been paramount to my role as the company's Sustainable Drainage Advisor, which involves transferring technical and operational expertise to the company and its approved contractors. Thanks to the excellent opportunity of studying at Abertay I have successfully changed careers and I am now enjoying working in a new role within a sector that is immensely challenging and of great personal interest. show less
