Not worth the price, time or effort!
by ScienceGeek - July 2014

The University of a Leeds is a great student experience package, equipped with state of the art lecture and laboratory facilities, student union, gymnasium and many societies and clubs to look forward to. Not only that, the city itself is great for shopping, eating out and clubbing. However, I was very disappointed by the MSc Bioscience course. It is not in the slightest what is promised on the website. The lecturers in most cases are guest lecturers and speak as if their only aim is to put you to sleep! The thesis (which is supposed to give you at least 6+months of hands on laboratory experience considering it is a Masters degree), only gives you 2.5 months during which time you cannot produce replicable or publishable results nor does it give you a chance to establish yourself ion the laboratory or give your supervisors a chance to offer you a place. All in all, I was very disappointed with the course structure and non responsiveness of the course planner. Whats worse, there was absolutely no help from the programme leader about future job prospects, despite of me being a distinction holder. Being an international student, I wouldn't have paid a huge price of 12000 pounds if I had known all of this before!
