The degree itself is not bad, none of the first year modules were really hard just required consistent revision with the main module which was financial accounting. Second year is quite interesting as you get to pick your fourth module, I picked Auditing which is quite hard heavy content but only couple months in.

I would say it definitely a useful degree and good for those who don't really like sitting listening to lectures. There is a lot of practical content - placements (50% of the time), skills lessons (where you learn new clinical skills) and simulations (where you practice giving nursing care to real children (actors). It is ideal for those who love children and love to care for people!

Course is well structured. Lots of focus on experimenting and trying all different types of media. Emphasis on location and life drawing which is really beneficial. Tutors are engaging, kind and approachable. Really quick feedback. Great trips on offer and close industry links via tutors. Great facilities and SU! Nice to be close to London but not right in it.

my degree has been challenging and a lot has been self taught, the more hours of independent study you put it in the more you will gain from it overall and the help is there if you put yourself out for it

Wide variety of modules so there is always something to be interested. Very practical with many hands on and creative projects to do. Many resources to use and a create community to learn in.

The degree itself has been a great experience, the lectures seemed to know what they were talking about and also keep me interested in the subject through the years. The experience has made me love psychology rather than just like it. I have learnt many new things and although it has been hard there are many resources to help you, such as lectures, books, journals. Also when looking for articles the iCAT is exceptionally good. Though the forms of assessment aren't the best sometimes, although they are predominately essay based (which i believe to be the easiest to do well in) there is at times multiple choice exams which are so easy to do either well or bad in because of the similarities of the questions sometimes, other than that it has been a great experience.

I like the degree I am doing and enjoy the content covered. I believe there are great facilities at Kingston University that help prepare for work in industry and help understanding of chemistry concepts. The course could be improved by making clear the direction of the curriculum. We are not given a comprehensive set of module aims that allow for us to prepare for exams, by making sure we have studied toward each aim. Another aspect for improvements is the assessments carried out throughout the year, ahead of the final exams. These assessments are not always clear, with regards to how marks are allocated. This means that at times marks are lost simply due to matter of opinion for example, I did not see the need to include a basic step in a calculation however, the lecturer required that step to be included and even though the rest of my calculation was correct I lost marks that were allocated to the inclusion of that specific step. Hence, I feel there should be better guidelines provided with an assignment so students are able to understand exactly what is expected of them and how marks will be allocated. In addition to this, I must say some lecturers give us very good assignments that are clear and concise, plus most lecturers are very open to aiding us with our understanding of the assignment if we ask them. Generally, I think the degree is good and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to study chemistry at an institute that will support them, with regards to their degree and their personal journey/ circumstances. The student support available is truly remarkable and has helped me so much throughout my degree so far. To finish, although neither the institute or my course are perfect, I am very satisfied with their constant attempts to improve and take feedback to better cater to us students.

The degree is well structured, I particularly like the fact that some modeules in the course are not essential to an engineering degree, but certainly give students a better understanding of businesses as well as projects involved in a firm. These include Business & Management, as well as project management. Together these two subjects put students ahead of other students when looking for jobs.

Other good characteristics include facilities at the university, from buildings and labs, to resources and facilities to create what we need to complete our degree with success.

More negative features of my degree include some with organisation, some lectures and planning where not as organised, including problems with our timetable in my first year, as well as some issues with lecturers not being in the correct room etc. I feel timetables could be displayed at buildings, with module code and room number allowing for easy room allocation and faster lecture starts.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Fashion Degree at Kingston University. I feel like the university has a lot to offer the students through the vast amount of equipment, studios and workshops on offer. The library is also widely populated with everything from 1920's Vogues to hundreds of DVDS and ebooks. The only thing i feel is that tuition time could be increased, although saying that i do think its important to be independent, especially with Fashion as it prepares you for the big wide world after University.

The course is quite a new one however is well constructed and the syllabus is very relevant, this course has the bonus of EASA B1.1 license training and alongside your degree you can squire your basic training certificate should you wish to do so, the degree and EASA syllabus is very similar too hence the EASA aspect doesn't make the course too intensive. This course is quite intensive however, this is due to EASA requiring many hours of work and BSc groups will attend 4 days a week and these days will be 7-8 hours long. Overall the course is very interesting and enjoyable
