  • No more of this 'Polytechnic' label

    As a student on the exempting degree at Northumbria, I get sick and tired of people rubbishing the degree as it is provided by a former polytechnic university. Northumbria is a fantastic university in its own rights and just because it isnt a 'red-brick' doesnt mean to say that the leaning is worse, I have a friend at Leeds university who hates her law degree as she finds that the course is far to academic and doesnt allow for law to by well applied to cases or indeed everyday senarios whereas at Northumbria we do this on a day to day basis which helps most to learn much more effectivly than just reading law from a book and having to know it.

    I have currently a Conditional offer to study the four year course at Huddersfield. Just wanted to mention that since this article has been published the offer given by Huddersfield is now 320 Points rather than 300.

  • The author of this piece is an idiot for asking if former polytechnics offer the same quality of training as BPP and the College of Law. I would remind her (or him, as I don't know what gender the name Husnara designates) that Nottingham Law School, part of the former polytechnic Nottingham Trent University, has offered highly regarded courses for some years, with a high rate of placement in law firms and chambers for graduates who choose to complete the vocational stage of training there.

    Please, Husnara, none of the sniffy "former polytechnic" nonsense. You can criticise these universities on their failings if you have evidence for it, but I'm afraid your suggestion that a gulf of quality exists between former polys and law colleges is conjecture that you failed to substantiate.
