The best part about my course is how diverse and practical it is. The facilities are world class and you get to learn from reputable professors who have written most of the text books we learn from.
The academics are always one step ahead, teaching us things they are currently researching. The support they offer is great and they have an open-door policy which means we can always pop in and ask them anything we need.
