Course structure is very good with practical tasks and theory to complete each week. Small classes means more personal tuition and time with lecturers. The modules are incredibly interesting and cover a range of topics. Timetable gives plenty of time to book extra rehearsals for assessments. Lecturers are helpful and able to be contacted should we need to. Academic Guidance gives a huge amount of information on topics useful for the work place and making the most of our time at university. Overall the course and university is excellent.

The staff is an excellent choice for the position. Some topics need altering in order to be a bit more interesting for the students; but overall we appreciate the effort. The content is not easy but is easily accepted and useful. The assessments are not easy as well but we have enough time to be well-prepared.

The content is much more mathematical than what I first thought, with many others having the same experiences as those who have changed course or dropped out was largely due to the strong maths influence throughout the course, even in modules that are not deemed as maths modules.Teaching is hugely varied across lecturers however tutorials are often not very well led, if by phd students.

Studying English at Loughborough University is really unique as the entire course is coursework based with the exception to in class tests. I feel that this is a brilliant degree to have as it lets individuals gain core essay writing skills and allows them to develop their ideas fully rather than be constructed to exam timings. The lectures and seminars are all based around your learning and as a student we are given our lecture reading prior to attending which gives us a stronger understanding of the content covered in each session. Alongside group workshops which allows us to work in small groups and present our ideas in an informal setting.

As first year students, at Loughborough University a wide range of models are offered. Each student can choose their individual career path. The first semester is all about laying the foundations for future modules. Each module has it's own way of assessment which vary from presentations, written exams to essays or group coursework. Hence, a wide range of skills are developed. All teachers have many years of experience not only in teaching itself but also have insight into the industry as they have worked in their field.I am enjoying my course a lot as I gain a deeper understanding of the Business world related to current issues.

Overall I would say the course is good. The neuroscience and Brain and Behaviour modules are by fair the best, and the teaching for them is great. Organisational behaviour isn't so great as the lecturer wasn't very good. It would be good if there was more coursework assessments rather than being overpowered by exams, but because of the nature of the course, sometimes coursework isn't the best way of assessment.

The course is 0 exams so is assessed via coursework, practical drama examinations, presentations and peer assessment. It is a very enjoyable course with the opportunity to choose the modules that fit with your interests. The varitety of modules is great and there are lots to choose form. Teaching is great and the facilities for drama are particularly good.

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.
