Accidental Education for the most part is what I received in Bolton St.
I was told that from first year onwards we would do most of our learning from one another, but how can you learn if you do not know how to learn?
It is unfair to blame lecturers and staff for people failing, the system has let them, and us, down by not having a stronger course direction and by not guiding them in how to teach and crit us, and in a system which did not adequately challenge.
Some people will never get along
Some people will struggle
Some people will do well
The class itself was let down by the system, but we are not entirely blameless ourselves.
Disinterest and apathy was evident.
I am disappointed that people who do not identify themselves INSULT people who taught me, who I found very inspiring, from an unknown, bitter position outside of the system.
I made the best of the situation, and really enjoyed my year because I participated.
You get back what you put in.
It was always made clear to me that if students had a problem with a tutor that they could go to the yearmaster and arrange for a different tutor.
Finally, while I am glad to be qualified I shall miss the place, the lecturers,the life of a student, the very good friends that I made there that inspired and challenged me, I shall always remain a positive optomist.
