By far the most interesting module that I have studied so far in my 2 years at Chester. The lecturers are brilliant and go above and beyond for their pupils. Course material is interesting and there is always an engaging class discussion in which people ACTUALLY contribute.

I cannot fault this module

If you are interested in developmental and educational Psychology then I would definitely recommend choosing this module. This module covers a wide range of areas in education including special educational needs, bullying, shyness and social rejection. Each lecture is full of interesting research and theories some of which have been conducted by the lecturers. The assessment is fairly simple with one essay and exam. The feedback and support you receive for the assignment is extremely helpful with the lecturers giving you areas to improve on and how you can improve and areas which are your strong points. The support for the exam is amazing the lecturers give you plenty of resources for you to look at and are available if you have any questions on anything. The lecturers are also really friendly and supportive and although the lecture is only small, the lecturers like you to engage in conversations, ask questions and raise debates.

Whilst during the open day I attended the structure of the course and the lecturers seemed both inviting and interesting, it has come to light that the Spanish Department in Chester are not very good when it comes to organisation and the majority of the tasks they set are very old-fashioned and have yet to be modernised. By comparison other areas of the Modern Languages Department are a whole lot better which has somewhat lightened the experience as I have had the opportunity to partake in some European Modules taught by lecturers from the other areas i.e. German and French, the majority of which have been informative and insightful. Whilst the subject areas for non-core modules are interesting, and the assessments fairly simple, I found the core modules and the assessments there of to be lacking in organisation and practical transferable skills with the subject areas often being very boring and occasionally irrelevant. As with all areas of life there are staff that are good and others that are less useful, i.e. the head of department would do anything to help and is very kind, others do not have many social skills and do not know how to motivate or support students. Ultimately, my experience has not been an amazing one, however, I will be pleased to have my degree once I finally graduate.

It occurs regularly that the degree programme changes during the year with no respect to what you originally signed up for. The time tabling is terrible which means lectures clad. Topics overlap all the time even from Level 3 ?

Overall the course is of good quality, with useful methods of teaching, including lectures, workshops and seminars.All lecturers are willing to help.

However, marking our assessment is a negative, along with organisation, which is tended to be eat until the last minute.

Overall the course is very good. There are a variety of types of assignments in each module and the feedback from each of them is of a good standard to help you improve. There is also a lot of support available on the course from your lecturers or tutors who are available to give you guidance on essays or any other issues. The lecturers at Chester are all very friendly, supportive, with great knowledge in their field of study and of Psychology in general. The modules on the course cover a wide range of different areas all of which are extremely interesting and there are seminars about new upcoming research the lecturers themselves are researching, which gives you a great insight into Psychology after university. I would always recommend Chester to study Psychology, the course content is very interesting, there is plenty of support with helpful and friendly staff.

The course is structured really well, and sessions alternate on a weekly basis, meaning a lecture is one week followed by a seminar the next without a lecture. in third year this is especially beneficial as it grants sufficient time to complete the seminar work properly.

The content is extremely interesting and the lectures are very thorough and a substantial amount of information is given making them informative.There has been external speakers in to deliver additional content, which has been very useful to expand learning. Due to the course and my enjoyment of it has actually encouraged me to consider a career path in this area, something I had not previously considered.

I have thoroughly enjoyed studying Medical Law. There is a 2000 word piece of coursework and a seen exam that make up the assessment. The Module Leader provides a fun way of learning the material and is always on hand should you need to talk.
