This module is a "flipped" style module where you can watch lectures in your own time. Then in the contact hours the readings are covered in intricate detail with skills to critically evaluate their content taught and encouraged. The lecturer offers in-depth feedback to students in a very hands-on manner in these and the computer-led workshops meaning that the most is made of the time in class.

This course is completely mandatory but generally felt like a waste of time and by the third week of lectures 90% of the students were no longer attending the lectures. If you have never done any kind of research you may find this useful, but for the average university student, the initial content was pitched so low that by the time content was of interest most of the audience was nowhere to be found. The lecturer was pleasant and really cared about students, but the course content and her delivery style were a bit boring.

I think this is one of the most challenging and interesting courses. I love that our lectures have actually taken part in some of the content and it is all based on real-life stories. The assignment lets you choose from many different topics which is good. It’s good to have a module with real-life application.

This module felt rushed, there were roughly 16 lectures taught in 2 weeks, alongside 20 other lectures from other modules, and at the end of both weeks there was a formal assessment worth 10% each that covered all the material learned. This module i found to be the most interesting, however i wish there was more time to learn the material properly and concentrate more on case studies. The assessments were placed two days after the final lecture, giving two days to learn all the material plus extra reading which is not realistic.

As I studied finance in my placement, this was nice to do. I got to learn things I can USe in the future , I .e how to calculate loan interest etc. This has been useful once when helping my dad work out if it was worth buying a car on loan. Also I found the lecture was engaging and very interactive. There was a lot of encouragement for us to answer and try questions. I learnt a lot of interesting stuff so therefore found it most enjoyable.

Operations management simply is incredibly crucial but so underestimated. This module alongside my lecturers enable me to learn about the actual logistics and strategies firms use.

The clinical and professional practice module is a very good module. It teaches you everything you need to know to be a practicing Audiologist. From the basic tests and interpreting them to the counselling aspect of Audiology. We get alot practice and the lecturers teach it in a way which is simple and easy to understand by also includes all the depth needed. The lecturer's are very supportive and encouraging and will explain it as many times as you need. They also spend ample time with each student to ensure they understand what is been taught. This module also prepares the students very well for placement .

The lecture Kathy Daniels has been a lecturer for the last few years, however, before that she was in industry and as such has a plethora of relatable information to aid in learning and apply the knowledge to real examples. Kathy has written a number of books two of which the course is based around this means not only is the teaching relatable but the books are easy to read and support the content clearly.

I found this module very interesting, and it is an area I am interested in pursuing.I also like this module as it is quite a specific and complex area of Psychology that isn't touched on as much. The module was quite varied, discussing things from dyslexia through to aphasia and also face recognition. And for the most part the content was presented in an accessible and engaging manner. Another thing I though good, was that the course leader had put aside an hour after the lecture for a informal drop in session, so if you had any queries you could go along. This was especially useful as some of the content was quite challenging.

However, I do think that some of the lectures felt rushed and would have benefited of being spread over several sessions rather than forced into one, but this would have meant that we would not have got introduced to so many topics.
