Technology related degrees are definitely one of the most popular choices nowadays. IT degrees are undoubtedly among those worth studying as computers are an inseparable part of our lives. Computer Science at De Montfort University in Leicester is a fair choice whilst looking at the university tradition in teaching this subject. The course itself is not easy, has a strong mathematical background and loads of programming. However, a lot of effort is put into practice, so you can quickly opt into the world of computer languages. There are four modules, with languages such as C, Java, HTML, CSS, Haskell, Bash, PHP, SQL, what is definitely an advantage of this course, as you can try a lot of languages and choose which one is the most suitable for you. Other modules are data structures and business related, what in my opinion is useful as we learn how business and project management work. There are 12 hours of teaching during the week, usually 2 hours of lectures and 1 hour of practical labs or tutorials. Each module has a phase test, which focuses on the theory and practice and 1 exam in May. There are many placement opportunities and students can browse through job offers with potential IT companies, such as HP, GE or Microsoft. The teaching quality is good, tutors are helpful and patient, especially for people with no previous programming experience. I strongly recommend this course for everyone with a passion for computing as it can prepare you very well for your future career.

I really enjoy studying business and management. Before choosing my degree, I knew I wanted to study a business related degree but I wasn't sure what aspect of business in particular. I feel that my degree encompasses all aspects of business and I find it interesting learning about the different areas including Finance, Marketing and Human Resources. In terms of assessment, I like that there is a mixture of formal end of year examination as well as the coursework aspect, and examiners give good feedback regarding how I can improve for next time. The possibility of undertaking a placement year is also an exciting and interesting aspect to my course.

The subject is not that enjoyable but as I want to study it I m finding it good. The teaching is very good from most of the lecturers. The problem with modules is that I don't understand why we are doing statistics ? It is not getting in my head.

The dance degree consists of no written exams but mainly coursework, practical class/exams and presentations. I think it's too theory based making it hard to work on practical based work. The teaching is sometimes good and interesting but sometimes it is hard to focus or keep up. However I do enjoy the course and it always keeps me on my toes but I think It could have more chances to showcase what we've been learning or what dance pieces we have made ourselves.

The content is relevant for students wishing to pursue their career in medical fields such as research, laboratory work as well as management in science. First year covers the basic concepts of chemistry, anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, therefore the degree is suitable for students from non-science backgrounds. The concepts are further explained by many laboratory practical sessions, which include spectrophotometry, pipetting, serial dilutions etc. The structure of the course is very well organised making the subjects easier to understand and follow. Written examination covers approximately 50% of your final year marks, the other 50% is awarded for coursework, practical sessions and multiple choice quenstion tests. Our teachers put a lot of effort to make the subjects intresting as well as easy to understand. There are many resources provided by teaching staff, these include audio recordings, videos and reading lists. The expectations are cleary explained throughout the year, therefore it is easy to predict the topics and concepts that are likely to come up on the exam. Overall, I really enjoy my course and I feel like my university wants me to do my best.

Sociology is an intreiging yet complex subject which looks at the different aspects of relationships, institutions, disabilities and many other areas of the surrounding world. I have throughly enjoyed studying sociology, and highly recommend the subject to students who have an interest in how the world functions.

The lecturers for this module were extra supportive, and not just for module stuff either. The assignment was well written (requirements were listed so we knew how best to get the marks). Taxation is complex, but the module was structured well so that we could see how each bit came together.

The module content has been interesting. Being a complicated subject, it is taught in a way which is understandable by giving step by step instructions as well as continued support.
