Staff are on hand whenever you need them, however this module is unique in the problem based learning technique it uses and the level of group work you partake in.This level of group work can be daunting at first but it is extremely valuable and provides you with skills along the way that you didn't realise you were picking up, there are also some extremely high marks to be earnt if you give enough time and effort to it.

You will be presented with three different cases of diseases based around the respiratory system, cardiovascular system along with a final neurophysiological section.You will be assessed for each. The first is summative and consists of a presentation, second is formative and a presentation along with a full scientific leaflet, finally a A1 poster presentation presented in an open area of the university to your tutors along with anyone else who choses to join such as the head of school or the dean.

This module can be very enjoyable and fulfilling with physical proof at the end of our hard work. Marks and feedback are also release extremely quickly which is always a positive thing!

My degree is taught very well, lecturers are very enthusiastic about the topics they teach and will always take the time to make sure that you understand everything. Lectures are always on an online system with extra content. There is always guided further reading and the opportunity to go further with your education. This is supported by all of the staff at the university. My degree is accredited so it puts me at a good advantage ahead of other Biomedical Scientists, there is a lot of opportunities and announcements about placements and jobs available. There is a very good student support system and the university is constantly evolving to the advantage of the students. For example, one society decided that there was not enough veggie/vegan food on campus, this has been debated in a student meeting and the university are now exploring vegan food options.

Despite the hardwork Law LLB is a course that is dedicated to broadening your perspectives deepening, your thoughts and cementing your values. I find it interesting so it is enjoyable but you cannot ignore the complexity of the subject where missing one lecture is equivalent to 10. There are different teaching styles but you have to make it work for you.. The course is structured in a way that you cannot get lost.. They often throw in guest lectures to make things even more interesting

I am at the Scarborough Campus and it's great - new building, small classes and really friendly staff. You only study one module at a time - 4 hours a day, 5 days a week for 6 weeks - so it's really in depth. No exams either!

Criminology at Coventry university is excellent, the staff are friendly, approachable and incredibly engaging. The course is assessed entirely through coursework which is great for me because I have never been good with dealing with exam pressure. The course content is extensive and throughout the degree you are able to choose area which interest you the most to do your assessed work on. There are also links with numerous company's and charities for which you can volunteer to enhance your career prospects. Last year through the university I completed training in order to be an appropriate adult for West Midlands police, and experience I am thoroughly enjoying and grateful for.

Studying Mathematics and Statistics is a very therapeutically pleasing subject to study, I find that once you master (sort of understand) a topic area that the achievement brings you happiness. This includes both written work and exams, as they both play a big part in learning maths. Maths is a vast and I would say complex subject that requires a lot of effort (almost all of your effort if you can), reason being the techniques are for the weak minded to understand. The structure is somewhat made easier in a way at Coventry University, as you only study for three modules per term (four in the second term) so there's less for you to learn.

This degree will keep you on your toes. The lecturers are never dull and allow lectures to me enjoyable. They cater to everyone's needs and have an open door policy which help students a lot. The degree itself teaches you from how to investigate a hard drive using tools the police use to how to get away with murder. As the degree is so innovative opportunities just land at your feet.

This course balances perfectly in depth aspects of both medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, providing clear career information and how to get there. This is along with the opportunity to stay on at the university and gain a masters in pharmacology and drug discovery, as well as plenty of PhD opportunities for those students willing to work for it.

All staff are available when they say they will be and only at the other end of an email, I have received an unbelievable level of support with absolutely everything I have done, whether that be personal, interview training, guidance with work I find difficult etc.

The course is set 50% each way roughly by coursework and exams, coursework including essays, lab reports and leading on to writing full scientific articles - potentially worthy of publication or conferences.

Final year also includes your own lab based project for your thesis, conducting your own research!

Teaching is lecture, workshop and lab based, along with an element of independent study which is up to you if you want to achieve those higher grades.The level of lab experience we gain at this university is of an extremely high standard and focuses around making you an attractive and employable graduate.

The course use to be very strong, it had structure and organisation. 

But then going into second year, the course continued to plummet. The activities provided to "help" us didn't really have much impact on our work. They aren't  a ten - twenty minute activity , they last near enough the whole day when they shouldn't. 

The teaching can be strong depending on the lecturer. One lecturer I praise hugely is Rob Tovey. He has structure, and keeps our knowledge up to date with current or trending lectures that are relevant to our module and learning. They really challenge you, and make you consider if you can apply the knowledge to your work, unlike the rest. 

We have waited for two months to receive module marks and another two for very poor feedback which wasn't actual feedback. The excuse of being under staffed is used a lot, and no action is taken. 

The one to one tutorials or group, are helpful. But maybe mixing the groups each week so we see fresh work and help other peers. I praise the course for this hugely. 

Overall, if you are expecting a great experience, I wouldn't get your hopes up. The university world has developed into a business. The course and the tutors just make you feel like a number, and providing they have ticked their boxes in what they have to do they are happy. It's a minimum, basically. 

I also don't recommend the place, Coventry it's self. Only benefit, it's close distance to Birmingham and cute villages. 

Strongly consider Coventry University as a whole. Great one to ones with tutors, but the rest just scraps on by.

This module is by far the most useful and interesting. The module leader always coes up with new information an ways to challenge and catch our attention.She has even asked for feedback and then acted accordingly.It is really useful to learn what other countries do especially in the business sectors.
