The course offers students a wide range of units to study across all the major science fields, however you must select a maximum of two of the sciences and take the units of these available (usually with some maths). I can speak for the physics and chemistry units, when I say they are generally well taught and a lot of support is available if needed. The lecturers generally responds to emails quickly and are happy for you to drop by their office to discuss any problems. In comparison to other courses, there are quite a high number of contact hours (in order to cover all the content!) but the quantity of work is manageable and a lot of the units tie in quite nicely. The only problem I have had is that when applying to science jobs, I have had difficulty getting an interview where they rule you out based on your degree program and don't actually consider the units you have taken, although there are plenty of jobs that do look more in depth. Overall I would recommend the course for any keen scientist

Well structured modules, split to cover a vast amount of information in an applied manner, providing relevence to every day sporting situations within physiology of the human body, the mechanics of the movements of the joints and the importance of pscholology within sport which can determine pschological illnesses and prevention methods. 

A mix of coureswork and exams, varys the course. With each assesment being new and based on a variety of topics. A range of group work and mostly individual coursework. 60% coursework and 40% exam. 

There is an element of descision making to choose your own assignments titles, which allows individuality and alows you to specialise to an area of interest. 

Great quality of teaching. The course content really pushes the students, and is very challenging at times, the hard work is needed as it is a highly respected and ranked course at Bath. 

The placement year has great oppourtunities for a great carreer start, with the excellent contacts bath holds.

This module was especially good, mostly because the lecturer was actively researching in this field. We approached blindness from multiple perspectives which I found really interesting. We came up with the questions for our final essay assessments ourselves, which meant that everyone ended up writing about something they enjoyed.

This was one of my most interesting modules. The lecturers were great, they found the perfect mix between theory and practical, worked examples. We also had 2 guest lecturers which made the course even more interesting. I'd recommend this module for anyone interested in marketing/ branding or even sales. The group assessment was tough but very relevant which I liked.

This module has been a favourite of mine since the beginning of the lecture, as I had a previous interest in dinosaurs and evolution. The lecturer for this particular module makes the lectures very funny and exciting, which is the perfect learning environment. The assessment is two essays, one of which is chosen and the other is completely chosen by yourself. This allows you to research and express your own personal academic interests. the lectures are just under one hour in length which is perfect timing.After you do this module you will never watch Jurassic park the same way again!

I chose this module as it is an area of applied statistics, which is the area I am most interested in. I expected there to be a strong practical aspect however it has turned out to be very dry and theoretical, and have lost motivation with the lack of reference to how things can be applied in real world context. This area of statistics is used in many real world situations and it makes sense to emphasise that in the course content. Part of the assessment is a class test which I feel is superfluous as it is basically just a small exam - a paper with questions that for no reason couldn't be included in the main exam. I feel that a practical assessment/coursework would be more appropriate and more useful with respect to using the knowledge in the future, outside of the university/academic context.

Strategic Management has been the most interesting module I have done at university. The content of the course is highly relevant and takes an extreme focus on understanding and critiquing modern frameworks in the field. Tutorials are 2 hours long, allowing the class to deeply discuss the case study at hand and work in groups to find creative, strategic solutions. The assignments have been both challenging and useful. One assignment was to write a white paper on a contemporary topic in the style of demonstrating thought leadership. The group work allowed us to choose a company (with the specifications) and analyse their performance and write a report elaborating on our findings and concluding with recommendations. This was followed by a presentation based on our report, which we had to do as if we were in a board room meeting, presenting our findings and recommendations to senior managers and stakeholders. Again this was both challenging and satisfying. Overall, the course is very interesting and engaging, but it has also been one of the most challenging.

The module has a very effective teacher. He is able to teach very systematically. Much consideration is given to the way he explains the topics discussed. The substance which mostly touches of Behavioural Finance are communicated in such a convincing manner.

I feel that this module could have been more useful. I would have liked to have seen a seminar on how to fill out lesson evaluations as many people I know and myself have struggled with doing this. However the teaching of this module had been good.

This module is extremely enjoyable, and discusses real life concepts (where some modules leave you wondering what the use is). It follows on from A level very nicely.
