I really enjoy the mix of media theory modules along with those focused on more psychological and sociological theory. The option modules for second year were limited, but there were still interesting choices. The balance of coursework and exams is great, most modules will be 50/50 but it is rare to have a module with 100% exam weighting which reduces a bit of stress! Majority of the lecturers are really friendly and will offer extra guidance if needed. However, a few of the foreign lecturers can sometimes be hard to understand fully.

1st year labs are not great, content is outdated and boring, could be much improved. The teaching generally is good, lots of lecturers very knowledgable and do current research. Most assessments are 80% min exam, little coursework if any, particularly in last year.

This module, as I am sure many of my course mates will agree, is excellently run and many other modules could take note from it. The lecture is much more interactive than others giving oppotunites to do questions in the actual lectures and many examples. Often workshops as well as tutorials along the way help you understand where you are at. The lecturer you can tell really cares and you want to do well for him. In the latest coursework test he provided general and individual feedback, stressing if you did not perform well to see him and work out a plan of where to improve. You actually feel part of the module. Whilst it is probably the module I will most remember and take away with me as you can apply much of the theory you learn into the practical world. For example game theory. It also has the perfect balance of maths and writing, which caters for all. I am yet to complete this module but I am sure it will keep impressing me and hopefully I will finish with a good grade, despite not performing as well as I may have done in the coursework test.

The content is great as you can see how differential equations can be applied in real life. The teacher is great and offers loads of support. Lecture slides, problems sheets and answers are always post online on time.

Marketing is not an area that I would like to specialise in after graduating, however I thoroughly enjoyed this module because the lecturer was particularly entertaining, engaging all students irrelevant of interests and backgrounds. There were interactive lectures with the lecture content varying from videos, to presentations to guest speakers.

This module consists of a lecture every week and a 2 hour lab every fortnight. As well as that there is a drop in session every fortnight with the module leaders where any questions can be answered/work checked/ all round support. I am midway through the module so haven't sat the exam (a 2 hour examination). I have found it to be one of my most enjoyable modules.

In this module students analyse a range of documentary films, primarily UK and US in origin. These documentaries cover a broad range of topics both classic and contemporary and are deconstructed during lectures to provide a insight into how meaning is constructed.

Sports economics is a challenging yet rewarding module. It differs from standard sports modules at it moves away from science. It gives you an alternative look into economics by applying economic theory to sporting events. I would recomend choosing a variety of modules when choosing at whatever uni you attend to ensure you get a full education. My module leader is an ecentric man who really makes what could easily be a boring model very exciting and one I look forward to attending.

By far my favourite module. It was a good combination of maths and programming skills - not for everyone but if you like it this is great! Really made you think about the way formulae worked rather than just how to use them. Also very good for enhancing problem solving. Interesting how it was bridged across maths and physics students.

The content of my course is exactly what I wanted it to be and more. It's challenging, but not entirely consuming and I have time for sports outside. I play AU level lacrosse. The assessments are well spread and (mostly) feel at an achievable level. The elective modules are good and give you the chance to either look at something to do with your course directly, or learn a language (useful for a DIS year or you PDP/ERASMUS scheme)
