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.

Its just not about the degree structure during the academic, learn more about yourself and improve everyday. The lectures even explain more when you approach then and the study resorces are very useful.

My degree has really brought me up to speed with the subject matter. My first year was really basic to allow everyone to gain a basic understanding of the subject matter. This was good in some regards but some modules I already knew the content but I could understand the purpose of having to study them again. The second year however was much more difficult but rewarding with enough support to do well. During second year I managed to secure myself a placement at Sony through the knowledge I had obtained. My final year has been challenging but I have really enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it.

The course is extremely poorly run. For example, this year one module is peer-marked solely because the previous years' work was marked extremely late and a large number of them complained. This is not an outlier - you will tend to receive your grades a lot longer than what the school rules dictate.

Half of your senior lecturers will not have English as their first language or be able to speak it well. It may seem small but it becomes extremely hard to follow what is being taught - evidenced by the low attendance in these subjects.

Another problem with this course is the assistant Head of School. If you have a problem concerning your results, prepared to be ignored. Myself and a number of people I know have found ourselves chasing our own tails to get the problem rectified - even when it has been clear we were unfairly penalised.
