The subject matter is really interesting as it mixes classic theories and helps to apply them to current affairs. Some modules however could do with more structure as sometimes it feels like we are having to teach ourselves. It allows you to think about your own problems and you discover more about the world then the usual university bubble.

I was excited to be offered a place in Brighton University, specially to do a degree that would lead me into my dream job.However a few weeks into the degree it became apparent that the university completely lacked in communication skills. Rooms changes, classes cancelled, teacher sickness- extra classes that wasn't communicated on our timetable. For a first year this was over whelming.Assignments were tough- help towards writing and expectations was no where to be seen. I failed many during this year and was provided no help and desperately seeked help in what I could do to improve my performance however all fell on deaf ears. In addition to this i completed a dyslexia test which i was told "i had the worst working memory" he had seen in a while and would benefit from extra help. I was told he would write an email to someone in the uni to which I was copied into. I heard nothing again since. I tried to contact maggie stuart on many occasions to try and get extra help however to no avail. I then failed two assignments which forced the uni to hold me back a year. I was deviated, I called the main person who was in charge of the course who then proceeded to tell me there was nothing he could do, he then hung up on me during a heated conversation. I heard nothing from the university. I was gutted. it was down to me to find out why, when and how to enrol for my next year. I was given no support during the year i had out and left me in sever financial difficulty. Luckily I stuck at it, i found that the university only helped significantly during the final year. Communication is still a massive issue. I would not recommend this university to any of my fellow colleagues who wish to do a nursing degree.

Having recently changed the course structure to be in line with other universities, there has been a bit of confusion and lack of communication. However Brighton is a reasonable place to study in a good location and with good facilities /support. It also offers 2 start dates for the nursing course which has been perfect as I was able to Starr in February

I have found my course very beneficial as it has taught me a great deal as well as setting me up for life after uni. The generous amount of equipment provided allowed us designers to express our ideas in a range of techniques, such as; screen printing, digital printing and fashion design. In our third year we are offered the chance to take a placement year and work in the idustry gaining knowledge and experience. This helped my final year so much and taught me skills that I might have been taught at uni. I would recommend this course to anyone who has a want to learn and enthusiasm for textiles.

As an overall the content for the degree is good. Each year had 6 modules each term, some of which were shared with other similar degrees. This was good as it enabled people to work with other types of people that may be seen in the industry. In some areas the teach wasn't great and meant a lot of self study had to be taken but for other modules the teaching was superb and the lecturers really helped when you needed them. For each term half the modules were coursework based and the other half were two hour exams at the end of the term or some modules had a piece of coursework due during the term and then an exam at the end. This worked really well as it helped you gauge were you were in that module and showed to use what we'd need to get in the exam to be able to pass the module or achieve a mark that we wanted. I really did enjoy the course and would highly recommended it.

Although there are a few excellent ones, the majority of lecturers will not help if you have a problem. The course is poorly structured which is part of the reason why there is such a low pass-rate. Personally, I have been given false information/hope by the assistant head of school and my subsequent complaints fell on deaf ears.

Fashion Comms and Business Studies, is split into 3 sections(?), so there’s fashion communication (the bit you sign up for!), business studies, and Historical and Critical studies (this is just looking at fashion throughout history in a critical essay based way). Fashion Comms, is also split into 3 modules in the first year- fashion photography and styling, fashion promotion and marketing and fashion imaging. It’s really looking at photography, graphics and illustration and (fine)art within 3 modules (units/projects) and basing those and communicating those in a fashion idealistic way.There is a lot of direction in this degree, following feedback we now have a lot more tutorials and consequently have a greater understanding of what needs to be done, and more importantly HOW it should be done. Which I think can be so daunting before uni, knowing that the work load increases and that there is a greater expectation of you. Communication could not have been better.Our course does lack in materials and studio space, which is something a lot of people have struggled with, coming from foundations and BTEC’s. There’s the issue of creatively being able to bounce off each others work, which can be so important in the sourcing of inspiration. We have been able to discuss our work and show our ideas in the space which they’ve opened once a week, this is so useful, but the course does require a huge amount of independent work.This year, along side our moduels we’ve been uploading and updating our blogs, which in our second year we’ll work on and develop further to use as a portfolio for our placement year, which you explore and apply for in year 2.I remember the day of my interview, there was a gal who was about to go in and she asked somebody if they felt at a disadvantage because they were studying a fashion subject outside of London. Even though we've obvs encouraged to go to Central often for exhibitions and inspiration, there is sooooo much to do here and so much going on, i can't remember when i was last bored. There is more to btown than the cliche photography of the sea and pebbles.

New course structure this year onwards, using cases so you're learning with context. E.g case study on conjunctivitis goes into eye anatomy, infectious microbiology, drug formulations, all of which relate back to a hypothetical patient who comes in with the disease. Lots of support available and good staff who are approachable. Course is a little fragmented due to it being made of several modules but they help you get your head around that. Assesed first year by lab reports, exams, OSCE and attendance of tutorials. All the content is put online too so you can catch up if you miss stuff and it makes it easy when revising. We also submit the essays online so you can see your plagiarism score and submit updated versions of your work so long as it's within the deadline. Brand new building for pharmacy and biomed which is partly why I chose the uni and it's great. As with any school or uni some lectures connect with me better than others but that is a mix of personal preference and the range of teaching styles. Either way you can go over content again yourself and come back and ask if you didn't understand something

I do really enjoy the degree, however I do not feel it benefits teaching as a whole. We are solely assessed on our ability to write an essay about teaching rather than how we actually teach. Our placements do not even count. It is either a pass or a fail.

An absolutely amazing module - taught by two very brilliant teachers who are obviously passionate about both teaching and the subject matter. We've been taught useful research skills and every lesson is a delight
