The university has such a nice feel to it. It’s more calm then an actual university. The classes are smaller so there is more 1-1 with the lectures if you feel stuck and the support from everyone is amazing. There are opportunities there I thought I would never get

I've had the chance to travel to New York and performing in Holland with this course, which has been amazing. The atmosphere within the course is great and were like a big family.

Very good I would say overall, the course really sets you up for real world situations and the way the course is marked is good, there are some exams but at lot is coursework of different which is nice, but sometimes course is slightly unorganised but this seems to be improved throughout the duration of the course.

Most of the staff are brilliant and will go above and beyond for their students. Being inside the zoo has pros and cons, and sometimes lacks the facilities that are usually given with the funding that comes with attending university. I feel this needs addressing by staff, as many students are upset with the lack of basic university facilities such as cafeteria (with student prices!), free parking and 24 hour library access. It isn't a cheap thing to attend university, and I feel that this shows in the way this course is run. The work set is a good balance of understandable, interesting and challenging. I am glad that there are less exams being set, as many students often feel that these pressurised events show an unfair representation of their subject knowledge. If the general upkeep of the facilities were improved, and the basic university needs met (just having a discount in the cafe would be lovely) I would have no problems recommending this course. However, unless either of these can be justified, I would recommend with caution.

Some of the modules are interesting, and the lectures engaging however the content seems over simplistic and almost too easy. The assessments have been well explained and marked however little support was given when finding work experience, in a area hard to find volunteer work in, that is mandatory to pass and as a result those who weren’t lucky enough to be given by the course runners a place at the zoo have found themselves with the possibility of failing the module with little options on what to do now. The lectures that work for the university are engaging and well versed in their subject, however those that are employed by the zoo seem to not want to give lectures, often cancelling them or frequently having guest lectures instead of doing it themselves
