This course is very interesting and the content is different in the first year than what you would expect. However sometimes lectures were cancelled with little notice and deadlines would move about with marks coming back later than stated.

I've enjoyed my course add it gives you a lot of space to pursue your particular photography genre of interest, however along with that comes a great emphasis on concept and I feel this means the course is better suited towards students who prefer fine art photography or know for sobriety that this is what they'd like to do whereas if you're concerned more about only learning the technical side of photography or only the commercial side of it then maybe this might not be the university for you. If you prefer commercial work but are open to seeing how your work develops then definitely go for it at hallam as there is room for you to find yourself don't more fine art type of work if this is the route you choose to go down.

I thoroughly enjoy my degree, although this wasn't always the case. I found the first few weeks/ month very difficult as I didn't have much programming experience prior to coming to university. Although it isn't essential to have programming experience, my advice to any students thinking of doing my course would be to get as much practise as possible before coming. Whether it be in the same programming language as that of the course or different, all will assist your learning massively!The content that the course covers is very relevant to industry and is challenging - without being impossible. If you do struggle at all, like I did then drop in classes and extra tutorials are available to assist you. Overall, I am very satisfied with my course and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a career in the IT industry as it unlocks countless opportunities.

Great, modern university. Staff always want to help you and has great facilities alongside some amazing nightlife.

So glad I chose this university, the business school is one of the best in the country and really cares about its students. There's always so much going on and so many opportunities to enhance your learning experience.

I believe that this module is rather slow progressing, as the course assumes zero knowledge from the offset it is taught from scratch, which is unfortunate as majority of the class is sat waiting for programming to become an actual challenge, as opposed to a session for sleeping.

The tutors for both Screenwriting modules (second and third year) have been brilliant. Both approach the medium in different ways, one creatively, and one financially (which is obviously useful as a third year when you're about to go out and try to make a career in the subject being taught.

The first part of the module require us to write a lengthy review of our placement and the skills we have learned/developed etc.The second section involved writing about our employability and what skills/attributes makes us stand out from other candidates.This module was very repetitive and didn't seem to provide many benefits.

This module is centrally based on the business external environment and different theories and frameworks are for analyzing this environment are taught in the course. It also teaches the various trends occurring in the business world. However, the assessments are done through presentation and report writing in which enough guidelines are given for appropriate understanding of the task.

I really enjoyed this module because of the creativity that is involved, this module gives you the chance to express yourself via your writing style but also teaches you how to manipulate your sentences to fit specific publications.

This module consists of a group assignment and presentation (50%) and an exam (50%).

At first we were put off by the open assignment brief, which was intentional to allow students to be creative and not restricted. Initially we were wanting more guidance and then reassurance that we were on the right track. However, after presenting our initial ideas in the assessed presentation and getting that reassurance we craved we realised this open assignment brief actually did allow us to get create and there were more areas we then focused on in the following group report.This was really positive and put us in what a real life situation would be like. Excellence experience.
