The course is really interesting and engaging. Teaching time is quite short however and a set structure doesn't appear to be in place and sometimes this can make things difficult to judge when things are due etc.The lecturers and seminar leaders are all very lovely though and do everything they can to help us all out.

Personally I think my degree is incredible, the teaching is above and beyond. All of my tutors go that extra mile to make sure we get the best opportunities while at university. I couldn't have asked for a better course, the content is varied and interesting. I learn all 3 types of animation (stop motion, 3D CGI and 2D) which I feel prepares me well for when I apply for jobs. The degree allows me to be creative and gives me the opportunity to be an individual and make it my own. I'm not stuck doing something I hate. The facilities are great and our tutors are always aiming to make them better. We also get university-funded trips to further our education, including trips to Animation Festivals as well as connections to the animation industry.

Great degree. Lots of flexibility with modules as well as taking extra modules not from your own department. For example, you can easily pick up modules from departments such as Philosophy or Modern Foreign Languages. Varied range of teaching resources and friendly and approachable staff. Normally assessed by exams at the end of the module but some modules also have in class exams.

50% of time is spent on placement at a hospital and the other 50% in university. Most students get a job at the placement hospital and the course has a 100% employment rate for the past 10 years!

Teaching quality varies and students tend to prefer placement to university time. There is a mixture of practical and academic assessments

I really enjoy the Media Studies course I picked at Sheffield Hallam University. For both first and second years I have a timetable of 9 hours a week over 4 days a week so the timetable is very simple and gives a lot of time for outside of uni study. The course is all graded by coursework, there are no exams on this course and during your second year you can choose 2 modules to study which K really liked, I chose Celebrity Culture and Feature Writing. The teaching here is good too all the lecturers are friendly and offer a lot of support and guidance and also they plan a lot of cool trips for the media students such as visiting Media City and Berlin Film festival. Media studies as a course is a good mix of theory and practical and you can choose which path to go down in seconds year, I would really recommend this course to anyone thinking about it, you won't regret it!

I am really enjoying my degree so far. The modules are very varied, from Nutrition to Food Composition to Business Analytics. I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of the degree so far, and find it very useful that there are so many different forms of assessment, including presentations, exams and coursework such as essays. I am looking forward to progressing throughout the year with some excellent lecturers and tutors.

The teaching is great, the lecturers seem to really go out of their way to help you progress and learn. However the Software required for the course is not free, and is required for the course to be completed, the uni keys for the software take months to update and the software often dosent work for long periods of time.

The facilities range from very good to poor. the number of computers often restricts the number of students who can work at uni. plus the Graphics input tools (the tablets) range from mid-range Wacom tablets, to old Wacom tablets which don't work.

The course overall is pretty good. Teaching staff are on the whole excellent and very friendly/helpful - with the odd exception. Lectures could be more engaging in terms of content and delivery, as at present all lectures are composed of the lectuarer talking and asking a handful of questions for the entire lecture - with not much more interaction than that. Most seminars are brilliant - very fun and interesting with plenty of group tasks and individual assignments to develop leadership/teamwork/time management skills etc., and taught by staff who genuinely are interested in making sure you get involved and understand everything.

The structure is really good as I have a timetable that works round our needs. The teaching is fairly good apart from one module where the tutor seems quite intimidating.

My course has given me an insight into the food industry and made me look at food at a completely new angle. The way the course is taught is helpful as we have both practicle and theory and are able to expain and learn to new skills.
