The course is an excellent way to be thrown straight into real world design opportunities. The emphasis put onto undertaking a placement year in industry means students gain real world experience before proceeding onto the final year of study and own personal projects. Students also have a years worth of design for industry experience, ready to help them finding graduate opportunities.

Sociology at Nottingham Trent is a good course to study if you are interested in finding out the issues faced within society, why these problems exist and how we can help solve these issues. It is interesting finding out different views on various different aspects of society. Some modules are much more interesting than others and some seem somewhat of less importance to the study of society. The teaching is good as seminars are structured well around lecture content and give a more in depth explanation of lectures. A criticism of the assessments is that some of them are not given as much guidance as others.

it is an intellectually stimulating course and covers a range of topics withing the business and accounting fields. i would recommend it to students who are unsure of their career path, as it is very broad and lead to successful avenues. however if you are aware of what you want to do it is probably better to something more specific to that. the teaching is very varied, and it can often be luck of the draw as to the quality of your tutors. but more often than not you will find at least one you get on with and can turn to.

I am a student at Nottingham Trent university in second year and I study Graphic Design. The course itself is very broad and allows you to be creative and follow your own style. They set up many workshops so you can improve your program skills with Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, After effects etc. Many workshops also feature book binding, paper crafts, monotype, screen printing etc, so to pick up new skills and discover something you could have a secret talent in! Many credited designers come to give lectures and there's always different exhibitions around the university and in the city. The course isn't very busy lecture wise due to it being very independently based, but the studio is always open for working in as well as the library being open 24hours. I like the way they asses our work, we are assessed before the end of each term and we hand in all our work and receive a grade on the day we break up with helpful feedback on how we could improve and which elements were good. Regarding the teachers on the course, they themselves are practiced designers and many have their own companies and studios. When studying on a art course you have to remember to follow your own heart when making decisions on your own work. This is due to teachers having different opinions compared to one another, so there is never a right answer, meaning you have to follow your gut feeling and go with what you think works! Otherwise you could end up being told one thing by a teacher and the complete opposite by another. Nottingham city is very affordable to live in and has a wide variety of shops, restaurants and bars making it the perfect student life.

The degree structure is very good. During the first year it allows you to get to grips with the basics such as programming and mathematics. The second year allows you to choose optional modules allowing you to further your interests in a specific area. This year is a lot more programming intensive teaching complex programming techniques very useful for a career. I did a sandwich degree which means I spent a year on placement as a software engineer. This allowed me to put my degree skills to practice and really understand how the techniques I had learnt were used in the workplace. The final year also allows you to choose optional modules and also includes some business type modules that are less programming intensive if you choose to explore that path. There are some challenging modules in the final year but there is a very good staff support team. During your final year you understand a final year project. Where you can choose this entirely and choose your own supervisor to help guide you through the process. This really allows you to explore your own areas of interest. Overall the course is really rewarding and allows you to tailor it to your own interests.

Technical studies is a very important module as i have learnt since being on placement as it is what you need to know interms of the actual construction of a design. I feel this needs to be taught in a different way, perhaps connecting the module to the design process more.

This module was particular interesting and i find that the lecturer Dr Nicholas Morton has a unique way to en-captivate the mind of the student which helps immensely.The module is focuses on the first, second, and third crusades.But the exam was on the second and third, which is slightly annoying as i had purchased a book on the first crusade.

The intercultural effectiveness module which I completed during second year was brilliant. This course gave us the opportunity to practice research writing and allow us to practice how to properly use academic journals and research journals to our advantage ahead of our dissertation in final year. There was a lot of emphasis on helping us with how to research properly, how to write concisely and accurately and how to come up with a question that is specific and not too broad.

Very interesting topic. I was very eager when enrolling for the course to study this, little did I realise that it is in the second year of studies. The module content was very relevant and interesting.

this module is a 2nd year compulsory module, it gives you a great foundation for going your dissertation the next year, in the first term you lean about different research approaches that really opens your mind up about the different way of looking at things and through the assessment for that term u look deeply into one approach and this should give you a foundation for how you will research your dissertation for me it certainly has. as the year goes on you plan your method of research for your dissertation and go into a proposal this is well supported throughout the year and gives you the ability and footing to succeed in your 3rd year dissertation. i am satisfied and feel that i have benefitted greatly from this module.
