Great, but I'm sure there's better

My BA (Hons) Media & Communication course at GCU is a lot of fun, and I’ve made real friends through it. The course gives you access to industry-standard camera equipment and editing software. Plus, as a surprise bonus, with the modules and optional modules that I’ve done so far (I’m now going into year 4), I’ve only needed to do two exams, both of them being online and multiple-choice! The rest of my work has been essays, reports, and presentations. That said, it’s by no means perfect. The course can feel quite focused on journalism sometimes, especially in years 1 and 2. However, the optional modules combat this, with these modules allowing me to find my passion for marketing. Also, I’ve found that some modules can be quite repetitive and/or basic. I wanted to be challenged more. My favourite thing about my course has definitely been the blended online and on-campus experience of it all. Yes, this was originally due to covid, but post-covid, some of my lectures continued to be online since they worked so well.
The campus is great. As I travel by bus, GCU is perfect! It’s one road away from the bus station. It literally couldn’t get any closer. The food and drinks on offer are great too, with there being veggie and vegan options as well, along with a Starbucks on campus.

Overall, I’d recommend GCU.
