I've found the Scenography side to be extremely useful and enjoyable due to the amount of practical projects that we can get involved with to out what we're learning into practice. The drama side so far has been a lot more theory based which isn't something that particularly interests me but it does come in useful.

By far my favourite module of my first year of university! Exploring such a variety of poets and authors just adds to the excitement and probably the only essay I've actually enjoyed writing in my entire life! The teaching at Aberystwyth is phenomenal and the facilities improve this too. Attending Aberystwyth will forever be one of the best decisions I've made in life without a doubt.

The topic matters of this module were very interesting but this was not matched by the lecture content or delivery. I don't feel that my knowledge was extended from my study of psychology in college which is what I was hoping for - I used an old A Level Psychology book for exam revision.

Tough class but well worth the effort. Many new industrial skills and real life applications are taught with plenty of examples and case studies.

Teaching by module leader Rhydian Harry is excellent and provides plenty of additional resources.

Seminars by both Rhydian Harry and Rob Bowen are well designed to support content.

Fantastic class if you are interested in global products and expanding complex business strategy.

This module was by far the best module I have taken at this university. To be taught by Neil Glasser, who is world-renowned in glaciology was absolutely brilliant. I enjoyed the course content and I feel the mode of assessment was brilliant as it incorporated a whole array of skills, ranging from essays to presentations to specialist GIS work. The lectures were always very intense with large amounts of information being given however, the reward is that you are taught by a fantastic lecturer who is providing you with expert knowledge.

This module is a core module for Business and Management students and offers an in depth understanding of how strategic decisions in businesses are made and what aspects on the environment, both external and internal, may effect the strategic direction of the business.The application of knowledge is transferred to the assignment in a critical way with analysis and recommendations being made from taking practical and theoretical aspects of the course to come to a conclusion. Overall the teaching and content of this module are great.

This module is great for anyone interested in the creative process of writing for film and television. The assessment consists of a 30 page script and the lecturers help you fully develop characters and ideas in seminars and lectures.

By studying other films and story types, it helps you understand what makes a good story. In addition, by exploring everyone's ideas in class you can often take the teacher's advice on someone else's film and apply it to yours.

The lecturer is incredibly engaging and really cares about the students in the class. She is always available to answer questions outside of lecture and tutorial hours and gives clear and constructive feedback on assessments. She included her own research in the course which was really engaging.

Absolutely brilliant topic, such good choices of cases. The course grade being 100% based off of one essay was both good and bad. On the one hand, you could write about something you really enjoyed, but it was difficult to motivate yourself to go to lectures and seminars when you knew you disnt need to know the other topics

This is a fantastic module for anyone who likes studying plants and animals in the tropical regions. The module takes place in the Kinabatangan wildlife sanctuary in Sabah, Borneo and focuses on the types of plants that grow in the region and their interaction with animals, insects and the introduction of Palm Oil plantations that cover Borneo. The coursework for this module is challenging but not too difficult and the module finishes before the start of term so it reduces the workload in the third year which is really helpful, it is relatively expensive, although for the general experience I would 100% recommend this module.
