I am a first year student, and so far i am fully enjoying my course. The course itself is spread evenly throughout the week. It includes service learning to give us a taste of helping the community before we go out into placement. The lectures are enthusiastic of their course and provide varied teaching to make the content more interesting.

The course so far has been a really exciting experience including the lab practical's which are run very efficiently and effectively with very helpful staff on hand to answer questions when necessary. All the lecturers respond very quickly to emails and are friendly and easy to approach if you need to talk about anything. The course content is relatively easy to understand and structured in a way that helps it easy to revise the material. There is a lot of information but the explanation given makes it easier to retain the information.

It's quite an intense course that offers you experience while you study. One thing I like about it is that unlinke other course at the end of my degree I already know what I what to become and they are some good paying jobs that are available in the government and private sectors. Our lecturers are very helpful supportive and understanding.Why not become an SLT

This is one of the most boring modules I have but it is also the best and most useful lesson (if I may call it that) that I have ever received! The basics of it is really that you learn to reflect on your learning, which seems kinda weird but it's done through working for uni credits in an actual job. You get guidance on writing cv, personal letter, cover letter and everything you need to know once you get out of uni! We always complain that we aren't taught how to get a job... Now you don't have a reason anymore! I admit that the lectures aren't always the funniest but still the best/most useful ever!!!

This has been my favourite module of my four years at university. I was lucky enough to have Rebecca Finkle lead my last year at qmu. As well as challenging our academic capabilities Rebecca allowed us to be creative in this module. She expanded my writing skills by this dramatically. She always kept the class interesting and I looked forward to attending classes. With regard to contact Rebecca was always keen to reply to any questions I had on the assignment and her feedback was quick and thorough.

After completing the first semester of my degree, so far I can say I have found it to be extremely interesting. It was not what I expected but I find this to be a positive. With a mixture of theory and creative aspects of the course there is something for everyone interested in PR and media. I thoroughly enjoy all the modules and feel challenged a suitable amount. I think the way we are graded is fair and effective.

Queen Margaret University is overall a great experience! I am a student from Sweden but have managed to make tons of great friends that make the experience fantastic! As a course I think events management is a fun, exciting and interesting course. We have really useful modules as well, such as work based things as well as purely theoretical and practical mixed things. The lectures are overall good, the main one is super funny and they listen really well to constructive ideas and give you good feedback. Overall I think it's fun and a great course for someone who either wants so do events or just not really 100% sure on what to do later in life!

The university is great. At first I was apprenhensive at the size of it and was worried it was too small for me but it's not. It feels like a community and you are still able to meet so many students from all the other university's in Edinburgh all whilst living in the most beautiful city. The academic side has never let me down. Help is always there when you need it and the teachers are all enthusiastic and out to strive for the best for their students. I'll be leaving Queen Margaret's on a bitter sweet note. I've had the best four years of my life but I feel they have prepared me for my future well.

As radiographers, there is a very short amount of Interprofessional working. In this module, for radiography students the module was worth 10 credits and for OTs, Nurses, Speech and language therapists, podiatrists, physios etc it was worth 20. I felt the module coordinators were unsure of how much to involve us in this module and it was slightly disorganised. THe other students were assessed in an essay and a presentation and we were assessed on the essay only although we were involved in the presentation. I would recommend that radiography students either should be given the full module for 20 credits or not at all as it was all a bit jumbled.

I enjoyed this module as it provided me with the most hands on experience throughout the course and it one which I felt I learned the most from. The assessments included:Clinical Element x 2 Pass / Fail13 weeks attendance in clinical placement Pass / FailContinuous Assessment spreadsheet Pass / FailClinical Activity Log spreadsheetStaged Clinical Discussion 70% (min pass 40%)OSCE 30% (min pass 40%)It took a practical approach to Radiography, and in the exam asked questions related more to placement than theory. The Discussion, although intimidating, was a good way to demonstrate to lecturers what you have learnt as opposed to a written exam. It included a 20 minute discussion with two examiners on general X-ray images. I thoroughly enjoyed this module and it aided me in my placement while working home in Ireland also.
