There's no reinforcement of attendance or punctuality, a person previously on my course had less than 4% attendance, and only 50% punctuality, he remained on the course the whole year because the college get paid depending on how many people pass.

Absolute abortion of a university course, totally incompetent teachers who relied on the pupils who had studied the subjects previously to give input/correction on the material taught. The marking of assignments was almost random. In one case someone who cheated and copied another pupils works received 10% higher grade than the original. The accommodation at lackham is similarly at fault, expensive, almost no facilities, if you dont want to eat the terrible meal you have to use a microwave to cook as there is no kitchen available. This is the only place I can write a review as the internal system for reviewing ins't anonymous so any bad reviews could reflect on your grade as the head the course is incredibly unprofessional and will not help you in any way. If you are still thinking about joining this course, I was so enthusiastic about motorsport before joining this course now I cant stand it.

Many staff and tutors are excellent, competent and dedicated but are let down by higher ups and an atmosphere of incompetence. Some tutors have no clue what they're talking about - lessons riddled with gross mistakes. Zero consideration for HE students, for example cancelling the already poor bus service on days when FE students are on break even when HE students are in. Apparently we all have cars (sarcasm). Complaints/concern procedure a joke - staff responsible attempt to manipulate or intimidate students into silence even about grave concerns. Concerns not checked or investigated, in fact nothing done for months. No apology for a giant mess up which impaired two months of our course and certainly impacted our grades. Facilities are shoddy in many places, such as having aged unreliable computers. 30 computers in a library which serves hundreds of students is ridiculous. Many chairs in the eating area are broken, and the water coolers been out of commision for nearly 3 years (instead there are 2 water jugs , but they are frequently dirty and not always put out). Although course trips were advertized only two were given in the first year - one was arranged by staff who werent on our course (they kindly let us go on a trip organized for FEs) and the other was put on only after a complaint (said complaint not being very well recieved. All in all I'd implore you to choose another college/university for HE, as while the FE courses are good the HE courses are appaling. Why one of the three worst HE institutions in the country sees fit to charge £1,000 more than its infintely higher quality competitiors is beyond me.
