Clinical education is my favourite module as it has given me an insight of the job. I have had the opportunity to meet students from different year groups as well as build a great relationships with members of staff in the hospital.This module has allowed me to develop my skills required as a radiotherapist such as communication skills. I communicate effectively with staff and patients and this is one of the key skills required when interacting with patients on a daily basis.The assessments in this module have all benefited me as every competency box I have signed helps me to push myself further. Case discussions are a good way to test your own knowledge and the assessor will pass you if they believe you are competent.It is a very hands on module however I feel as though this module benefits me the most.

The leader of this module is enthusiastic and makes every seminar enjoyable. She is very passionate for students to succeed and better themselves, and always finds a way to solve any problems you have. I had a big problem with getting myself a placement and with her enthusiasm and willingness to help, I was able to get a placement and pass the module with a 2:1.

There are a variety of leaflets and handouts throughout the module to help you, as you have to fill out diaries and logs yourself. These handouts along with every seminar are extremely helpful. The content allows you to complete a placement in any field possible, such as journalism and working in a school. I made lots of new friends on the module and couldn't recommend it enough.

The teaching of this module is what made it stick out to me. The content is very interesting even though I don't find history that exciting. Learning materials were always provided removing the need to make in depth notes and allowing more concentration in the moment.

I really enjoyed this module. This module is taken in the first semester of third year, and is what some may refer to as the dissertation. This research project only asks for 4000 words so is smaller than dissertations on other courses however it allows you to discuss your own genre of practice which therefore links your practical work from another module you will take at the same time as this module. For example, my practical work was about the advertising image and the way it is staged, therefore my research project was also on the same topic which makes reattach for both modules slightly easier as you can use some of the same sources where relevant. It also means that your research project should be something of interest to you which will make writing the essay much less dull as hopefully you'll enjoy what you are discussing. The research project is usually due by mid-January, with the chance to submit a draft to your dissertation advisor around early/mid December so there is plenty of opportunity for feedback and refinement and is easily do able as it is only 4000 words.

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.
