I have thoroughly enjoy my first year of my Accessory Design Course at Nottingham Trent University, i have always been creative and love to design so this course is perfect of me. The structures of the assignments are very open so you can use your imagination to the wildest extent, using lots experimentation and imagination to create your final collections. Working within the industry and having your own personal project there are so many varieties of final collections within the year, all with each persons personal touch to the collections. Within the course there is only a handful of people per year but the support from fellow students and tutors has been amazing and helped me so much with how far i have come ready for my final collection next year. I have learnt so much in the year I have been here and so excited for next years challenges.

Good course. Would like some more marketing and creative modules. Very management focused, so some modules like International HR which was not what I was expecting to study. Although tutors very knowledgeable and helpful.

In the first year the course is split into 6 predetermined modules. Overall these are taught well and you compete lecture and seminars in both. At times it can annoying doing modules which are not relating to Accounting, but this is needed in order to get a basic grasp of the subject as a whole.The lecturers are all knowledgeable and are willing to help and answer any questions that you may have. You can contact them via email and they all have 1 hour set aside a week which you are free to come and contact them in.Outside of lessons there is a large number of opportunities that you can get involved with. There are around 90 societies, the student union and constant volunteering opportunities such as football coaching in local primary schools. Overall this is a good university to attend and there is nothing about it that will jump out as being bad. Being located in a city also gives it a good community feeling.

The way they taught the course, there's nothing wrong with it. However I like active activities rather sitting down listening to lectures. I thought maybe we could have some team building time, having live briefs working along real marketing teams or business entrepreneurs who would need help from us.

The tutor support was indeed good, although the sometimes the slots we get given gets fully booked quick, the tutor again would meet our flexibility and to talk to us even outside of their office hours.

There is a wide variety of content that spans across the whole of IT. Between your first and second year the university give you the option to change certain subjects so that you have the freedom to challenge your knowledge and also enjoy your course. The teachers are often too busy to answer emails but during seminars and lab sessions they are more than willing to help you will your projects. It has been an exciting and challenging experience that has required a lot of research in my own time, but if you have the proper work ethic, it's definitely worth it.

I am really enjoying my course so far. I think it's effective because it gives you an overview of the different aspects of a business like marketing, operations, finance etc. In addition, it emphasises the importance of culture and in particular cultural differences between businesses. This course gave me also the possibility to continue my studies in a foreigh language, which I think is really importance for my future career.

The course is well structured covering all aspects of primary education and the subjects involved within. The teaching is very practical based and informative. Each year all written assessments are assignment based as well as a practical assessment during placement which involves undergoing an observation whilst teaching. The course is very enjoyable and will lead me directly into my chosen career

The primary year does not have too much overwhelming difficulty. The second year is where you begin to sweat from deadlines for your essays. Overall, in short, the course teaches the complex ins and outs of working in the youth justice system which is governed by the ministry of justice. It teaches you what you need to learn, what to do when why etc. Its quite difficult to summarise a whole uni degree.

Business Economics at Nottingham Trent University includes a variety of topics allowing you to learn about various areas of economics allowing you to broaden your previous knowledge. Each topic includes links to the others allowing you to understand how economics works as a whole. There is an even divide between theory and maths based learning. The content is difficult and challenging, however the staff are very helpful and will organise personal meetings in order to discuss areas of difficulty with you. The assignments are also varied between presentations, essays and reports, due to this you have reduced amount of examinations at the end of year. The exams are always 3 hours long, in that time you are required to write 4 essays, which is probably one of the only down sides of the course. However, question topics will have been covered in mock assessments in seminars to prepare you. However, an area of improvement could be to offer an essay writing seminar, briefly covering how to structure an essay and the level of detail that should be provided.

For this course you have to be prepared to read. Don't be put off with that because some cases, even though they may be long, will actually hold very interesting and helpful information.

In terms of lectures and seminars. The lecture will give you a brief overview of the topics that you will cover. You will need to do the required reading in order to be able to complete the seminar work and get a better understanding of the topic. The lecturers will constantly tell you that the lectures are not a substitute for the reading.

In terms of seminars, you will be in smaller groups in order to develop your knowledge of the topic and have a class based discussion if relevant. I would highly reccommend completing the pre-seminar prep as it will remind you of key topics and is good practice for case scenarios that will probably have a close affilaition to ones seen in your exams. It is good to practice these problems now so you can get it wrong and have someone explain to you how to do it right - rather than make silly, avoidable mistakes in the exam/coursework.

As with any school or university, you are going to get some good teachers and some bad teachers. Of course, the definition of 'good' is subjective. If you are perhaps struggling with the teaching method or do not get along with the teacher, I would recommend emailing them on subjects that you are unclear about, plus doing some extra reading will really help. If there is a real problem then there is always the option of changing classes, so long as it fits with your timetable. This of course will have to be confirmed by academic advisers.
