For this module, you will have one lecture and one tutorial a week - usually both on a Thursday. The lecture is 1 hour long and the tutorial only 2 hours which I believe is not enough time to really grasp the module. The basics are taught well but for both the exam and the coursework, you are given complicated shapes to produce drawings and there is a big jump between what you are taught and what you are expected to do.The time given for the coursework is plentiful and I have found the lecturers of this module to be very willing to help.

I enjoyed this module as found it interesting specializing in an area of interest to me. It made me feel like I had new expertise and informed my practice on placement. It was quite stressful finding the time to fit it in but was possible and I feel the pressure made me more productive. Some of the lectures felt a bit rushed and were slightly boring. For example about research methods, some things felt like they were being gone through for the sake of it. I had a good relationship with my dissertation tutor and felt able to ask for help when I needed it. When we were unable to have face to face supervision she called me to advise. I found the grading very strict in this module and not really inline with other areas of the course.

This module i was extremely worried about having come from a precious cohort and only heard bad things.It was delivered effectively, i found it enticing, the homework was short and sweet and straight to the point. 1 on 1 meeting was easy to get hold of and the lecterer was more than happy to meet and kept me positive.

This module was only good due to the teacher who taught it. Gary Barrett was the first lecturer that myself and many of my colleagues come across that spoke with passion and honesty.He put the enjoyment back into learning and didn't just read of a powerpoint presentation.

My biggest concern wit this module is that the content which you attend class for can be so far removed from that which you are intending to research into. Additionally, the lectures were slow and unexciting.

I initially found the leadership module very confusing but with additional support from the lecturer I was able to achieve 73% in the exam. The support given by the module lead was exceptional

Very little help online apart from the basics. Only one lecture a week which is not enough for this module. Classes are generally empty because the lecturers for this module are extremely poor. However, for the semester 2 project, ample time is given to complete it and they do have multiple drop-in sessions for it.

I’m taking this module forward to next year, so I’m not sure if I’m very biased(?) In our first year, we only did introductory module’s, so I studying introduction to fashion photography and styling. Which was so useful for somebody that only really had an interest and had little to no prior knowledge on the whole camera thing. That being said, it was a 3-month module so it contained a lot of content and therefore did become quite complex when the module was finalising.It was a really good module to start with, because we learnt so much and there was so much content, our timetable was full and there was more actual lectures and seminars than independent working, which meant we could get to know our peers and build relationships. It was also good in working our time management around too, because we were freshers and we still wanted to do fresher things (tut tut). Some of our lectures included: Introduction to a film camera, The inside of a camera (actually a lot more goes on than you think), Aperture how much light the camera allows in and how to change this depending of the circumstance, We then developed our own photographs in the dark room from our film cameras, We had weekly sessions on how to use the dark room and develop our skills. Guest lecturers which tied in with our seminars for business studies and historical and critical studies, we had lectures on styling and pantone colours but that wasn’t limited to. We also had a huge amount of direction because it was so independent.Photography is another degree at the uni of Brighton so we have a lot of materials which we have access too, including the teaching staff.

I have really enjoyed the past few years studying civil engineering. It can be challenging at times but it is also very fullfilling. The course offered at my university offers a sandwich placement year which I did and really enjoyed. The course is assessed by examinations (60%) and coursework (40%) which is a good balance. The first 2 years of university are quite broad covering a wide range of civil engineering aspects, while the final year students can select more specialised modules from a range of optional modules.
