This module sounded daunting but was incredibly interesting and enjoyable. It can be used and applied in every other module. There was a focus on contemporary relevance, highlighted by the piece of work we did on the Feminist Judgements Project, which raised plenty of debate, both academically and socially.

Surveying class was useful in teaching practical techniques such as using total station and dumpy level and etc.

Some of the older methods were unnecessary but good in teaching basics for other equipment.

This module was an absolutely painful one- the clue is putting 'Advanced' in the title. I found this was one of the few modules where I was literally up all night trying to develop a very annoying game. However, the support from the lecturer (Dr Phil Hanna) was beyond what any other lecturer would have done. If you submitted an assignment at 10pm, he'd have vocal feedback for you, recorded and sent to you by 10am the next day. The man has obviously figured out time travel to do this for 120+ students, but he does it. The module was tough, but the most enjoyable for me because I knew I had the support.

The lecture notes provided on this module were very comprehensive and complete. Equity is a complex subject with the hardest topics being accessory and recipient liability and third party liability. The notes provided made it so much easier to study. It was clear which part of the topics were important and I could identify key areas of the law. The teaching was clear and concise, making it easier to understand the complex theories.

This module is about web design for websites and web application. It uses various languages such as PHP, MySQL and C#. The lecturer is absolutely fantastic and very hands on, any problems will be addressed almost immediately. In labs (2 hour session) there are demonstrators who will help you until you fully understand it yourself and feel confident in what you are doing. Great module which has made me like programming again.

Studying Law has been challenging, interesting and stimulating. The range of modules make the degree diverse and a mixture between coursework and exams as a means of assessment help you develop a range of academic skills. There is a real focus on critical evaluation, especially in 2nd and 3rd years which is a skill I have found particularly useful in job applications and interviews!

Challenging course, if one has a part-time job then it would be more feasible to do it part time as it is all course work based and very intense

Module descriptions can be misleading and assignments may not seem very relevant to modules, for example, book reviews, archive reviews

I think that the Computer Science degrees at Queens are certainly good. The lecturers have good intentions, and work hard with students. Granted, I have seen other universities where students have excellent rapport with lecturers, and that isn't at Queens, but I feel like they give as much support as they can, which is better than being left in the dark.The main problem I have with my degree is the course content itself. I hope to continue to study, and then become a software engineer. I am currently on a placement year, and have learned more about code development in 5 months than I have in two years at my university. The coding languages chosen by QUB to get everyone to a certain standard means that we are missing out on essential experience required for our industry.

Content in first year was quite broad and alot of, in my opinion, unnecessary information leading to slight information overload that wasn't too relevant.2nd year was more enjoyable and content more focused.

Teaching staff could be better as with some foreign lecturers, can be difficult to talk to or get information from even though they may be very good at what they teach but just don't get it across to students.

In general, good course and good lab work and practical work. Enjoy learning civil engineering at Queens and most staff are very helpful and will point in right direction.

Most full year modules have exam in June and half year modules have exams in either January or June. Exams count for most marks usually for course with Labs and coursework contributing.
