I find Uni.. My experience with Uni till now has been great as they have provided number of opportunities for students alot

Positives: Positive aspect of Uni is they provide good facilities in terms of library, sitting areas. And if I talk about course then, it's well aligned with modern industry requirements

Negatives: Negative aspect is, as students coming from different background in IT. It's so much harder for them to learn the basics as only few portion of it contains basics

My advice to future students is: It's good uni and course if you have some technical background which will help you to understand in lecture more better
