What a bad university spent there 4 years, 4 years wasted. Nothing related to practical side of things. Tonnes of unuseful that they tell you to read and learn.

If you trying to pick a university then please have a look at Glasgow Caledonian as it is one of the most progressive, innovative and modern universities in Glasgow and the Psychology department is the best.
