My teachers weren't great, but it is the best place for postgrads

I studied 6 extra modules compared to other state universities; it was too much, because we learned three modules a semester, then there was a three week break and then exams - ALL of the exams were in a 2 week period. A lot of people had 2 exams in 1 day, while students at other universities have at least a week between exams; we were lucky if we got an hour! Exam period was way too stressful for most of us, so I think it's definitely something that needs to be sorted. Don't come here if you want a decent social life, as most students come here for the reputation that BPP has in the legal and business industry, meaning that people come here purely to get their heads down and study a lot. I found it really difficult to try and organise any kind of social event, people are more interested in competing with each other for training contracts. My teachers varied, as a couple of them were brilliant, but the others weren't so good and would just repeat themselves if you went to them saying that you hadn't understood something. It was difficult to get a response out of them too, as we could only get them via email and they rarely replied. The pastoral care is non-existent! There is one member of staff for the whole of the third year and she's rude and barely evn around. BPP is still fairly new and I think they are still learning a lot from other unis. It's probably not the best place for undergraduate study, but I'd definitely do a postgrad here.
