This course is very good as it covers a wide range of topics within the modules, so can cater to anyone regardless if they are very informed about sport or not. From modules covering social theories in today's and past societies to biological studies and psychological theories.

The structure of the course so far makes a lot of sense. I like the modules and the way they're distributed throughout the years. I feel as though the teachers are very friendly and therefore make the course so much more fun and entertaining. The way we're assessed is very straight forward and easy to understand and therefore I feel as though the students can gain better grades if they understand how things work.

For law: Assignments and exams are 50/50. Exams are at the end of the year and assignments are throughout the year.

Teaching quality is pretty standard, you have a lot of lecturers whom really help you engage in class (mostly seminars) and ones whom are a little on the quiet side. Most lecturers are foreign so some may have a slight accent, but you'll get used to that in no time! Nonetheless, they are excellent lecturers.

There are hundreds of societies to join e.g your subject society, religious societies, hobby societies etc. and they hold loads of events and opportunities to increase your employability.

Most societies however, cater to students on campus, because most of the events and socials are held in the evening/night. This can be a little frustrating.

Food is really cheap in Uxbridge, compared to the food where I live (marble arch). You can buy a whole big meal for less than £5. Food varies from Italian, thai, Turkish, typical chicken shops etc.

It covers the history and effect of postcolonialism on Asia, Africa and the Carribean. It allows you to delv into cultures you perhaps might not have been exposed to before and it lets you see that colonialism had its benefits and cons.

The Clinical Psychology module of the course is taught by a highly qualified behavioural therapy who specialises in eating disorders. The module content is complicated but is made easier by an excellent and entertaining lecturer. It is an exam based module.

The Women's Movement module is one of my favourites and a great basis for many students who end up looking at gender for their dissertation. We explore issues surrounding gender and sexuality dating back to events such as the Civil Rights Movement. It was great learning about the history of famous feminists such as Audre Lorde, Sojourner Truth, Alice Walker, Adrienne Rich etc. We talk about race, class, intersectionality, transfeminism and a whole load of different topics. It definitely takes away many negative connotations people have with feminism but also the lecturer allowed everyone to share and open up with their opinions, it wasn't just a one way system. The novels were also highly enjoyable, we looked at works from Angela Carter, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison and many more.

This was probably the least enjoyable module that I had undertaken, during my time at Brunel. It seemed poorly organised and the criteria was unclear throughout. The assessment required us to write a project as a group. I believe there are other, more effective ways to demonstrate the ability to work as part of a team. Writing an essay together meant that the final piece of work was disjointed, and the whole process was extremely taxing - with some members of the group putting in more work than others.

I would highly recommend doing an English course at Brunel. Although first year modules were very general, second and third year became more specific and there was a huge range of topics to select from. My personal favourites have been the Shakespeare modules (we got to go on loads of theatre trips), the Women's Movement module (amazing) and the Post-Colonial module which is highly relevant to contemporary society. It isn't just about reading books, you gain knowledge on history, culture, politics and so much more. The lecturers are pretty good too, very helpful especially with the feedback they provide for essays which are detailed and clear.

This was my favourite module. We firstly were required to analyse a sports film and that was fairly easy. Our second assignment is to create a short film depicting a issue within sports.

The content is far reaching and it's very flexible in terms of what it allows you to do. It teaches you how to research correctly and how to create a cohesive argument.
