Here Are All Of The UK Unis With The WORST Lecturers

Is it really worth 9k a year?

If you’ve ever sat in a lecture and wondered why it’s just a PowerPoint or have had to chase up lecturers multiple times asking for feedback, you’re not alone. When you consider that university used to be free and much cheaper than the current 9k per year, you’d definitely expect a certain standard when it comes to teaching.

Now, while lecturers are definitely underpaid and overworked there are some that do genuinely go above and beyond for their students and care about their wellbeing and education, while others…maybe not so much.
