I have greatly enjoyed studying my degree. The degree is a balance of practical teaching as well as some lecture content too, keeping it varied and interlectually stimulating. The main assessment of this degree is by coursework with just 2 exams in the second year. Thoroughly enjoyed my degree and my time spent at Nottingham Trent university.

It provides a holistic approach to all aspects of history, it doesn't just focus on British history, although this means that every lecture will be on a new subject rather than continuously focusing on a specific topic. Year 1 includes approx 60% coursework to 40% exams based on what you learn in the lectures and seminars.

Studying sports science and coaching at Nottingham trent university has a broad range to off with regards to learning and experiences. However there are pros and cons to this course like all courses, for example the coaching module is very basic and does not offer specific coaching feilds nor is the first year very well laid out and there is only one module on coaching. The rest is similar to a standard sports science degree for first year, the oros of this course is that it goes into great detail with regards to human anatomy and functionality whilst also providing top level lectureres all of witch are very attuned to their feild of reserarch and will often help you if you are struggling with a specific element within each module. Im looking forward to the second year as it is more specific to coaching and offers sport analysis as well as coaching to further enhance ones own coaching and employability.

In terms of course structure I am really happy with my course, the lectures and seminars are interesting and I feel engaged with the course. The lecturers have absolutely made my experience. I was incredibly apprehensive and found transitioning to university a challenge but the lecturers and student support staff are among the most supportive people I have ever come across and as worried as I was at the start I know university and my course now to be one of the best decisions I ever made.

I found my degree very current and interesting. I completed a joint honours which was great because it allowed me to boarden my horizons in two large fields. This also meant throughout the course I didn't get bored.The assessments were good because they included a variety of forms such as presentations, campaigns, exams, essays, ect.

Content and structure for year 1 & 2 is relatively good but bare in mind this course classification relies entirely on year 3 (final year). So if you muck up final year, you're doomed. You can't retake final year either so it is not easy. You can essentially not work hard for the first two years (as long as you pass) as long as you work your pants off in your final year. I also found final year to be the worse year of my study, mostly due to the module leader and some of the tutors. Favouritism is ridiculously evident, so unless your projects are instantly liked by the tutors (who will be marking your work at the very end and giving you your degree classification) you may find it hard to get a good grade. Every year, you have an assessment at the end of each term, giving you an indication of where you are working at. You are also assigned tutorials every week which is excellent contact time compared to other universities. However, the tutors do not give you good indication of where you are working at during the tutorials. They might say your work is really good and keep it going, but you don't know whether that 'good' is a 1st good, a 2.2 good or even worse. Please also note that final year of graphic design at NTU is VERY VERY expensive. I spent over £600 in final year for creating my final project items as well as printing and producing sketchbook development work. If you plan to make a book for anything e.g. a children's illustration book, they expect to see a fully binded copy of it. If you want to make patterns for a fashion line, you are expected to print them onto material and produce the apparel. And if you don't know how to sew clothes, you'll have to pay for someone to do it for you. Even through the other 2 years, I have spent at least £200 alone on printing for sketchbooks and alike.

I really enjoy my degree, it is stimulating, interesting and very accessible. I have enjoyed learning about the several different aspects of media and also the more communications side to my degree. The communications tends to focus on psychology more than anything else with the main theorists such as Freud and Skinner making appearances and themes such as the self and development of the self as key topics. Overall I enjoy my degree but I would advise everyone to check the amount of contact hours their course includes to make sure it's what you're expecting overall.

I really enjoyed this course and throughout the year I found that the lectures were interesting and relevant. The assessments were all coursework apart from one seen exam but from not doing very much work all year the wave of assessments can come as a shock so make sure you organise your time well.

3rd Year

A very unique degree that is offered at a handful of universities. Nottingham Trent University is by far the best university to study this unique course. 'Business Management and Entrepreneurship'  is a great course assesed by various ways. In the first year of studying the majority of business related modules are studied giving you an overview of the business world. These modules are: Economics, Accounting, Quantatative Methods for Business (QMB), Managing & Organising, Marketing and Enterepreneurship jointly covering all aspects of the business world. You are assesed by exams, essays, reports and group presentations.

In the second year the modules i studied were: Managing & Organising, International Business, Dynamic Entrepreneurship & Enterprise in Practice. My favourite module of the year was International Business, this topic i found the most interesting and it helped increase my understanding of international business law further. My tutor made this subject the most interesting and the engagement evel for this module was very high in comparison to other modules.

The majority of staff  here at NTU (Nottingham Trent University) are friendly and helpful. Feedback can always be improved, especially for group assesments. There are lots of opportunities to  get involved ,increase your CV and employability, the employability Hub is a useful tool, as well as student services. Also, your course and school reps are very helpful and always willing to listen and to point you in the right direction when seeking answers.

I had the oppurtunity to study abroad via this course, it was an intensive, yet amazing  learning experience that will not be forgotten.

Be open, willing and remain focoused and you will excel in this degree.

Wishing you all the best with your university carrer.
