cannot comment on the pt course as i did the ft one. was overall very happy - some courses were great (howison's, hambly's, zhou's) others good, some sucked though. the course organization is sometimes bad, but i think they are improving it and at the end of the day it is not really what matters imo. career support is not very strong imo, but maybe that does not matter to you. my impression is the brandname helped big time in my job search later on. overall, would do it again any time, it was a great time and i learned a lot (had been working in a different field for years and wanted to switch tracks). and out of gut feel, i would choose this over any other course in the uk. good luck.
