The UG experience
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Generally, my lecturers were good and made study as interesting as the situation would allow. The curriculum could have been better though. The haphazard nature made studying a chore.

It was a really good experience for me. I could not finish the course as it was not my original course of studies
