As our only music related module of this semester, I really enjoy this module. The lectures are interesting and relevant to what we want to be learning about. The teacher makes sure his lectures are full of information and useful things. The assessments for this module consist of a group presentation and a short essay which is brilliant. I have really enjoyed the few lectures we have had already and I feel that I have taken a lot from them so far and will continue doing so.

Studying Film at The University of East London has been a great experience. The tutors are extremely helpful and enthusiastic about what they teach, which helps all that more with your enthusiasm for the subject! As you study a range of topics you are able to decide what is more for you and what you are passionate about. Whether that be screenwriting or filming, and in the second year can choose some of your own subjects. What perhaps is not so great is the available support approaching work experience and learning about the world of work within your chosen subject... this making you feel a little clueless as you approach the end! But, of course, you can take matters into your own hands. Although i have found the course to be very rewarding, i feel that the content of the course could do with some altering. Some of the modules have too much content crammed into one lecture and rather than in depth learning, the module ends up seeming rushed.

The course is a great mix between practical classes and theory in lecture rooms. The staff are very helpful and I believe they really prepare students well for going into a full time career. There is an element of independent research and learning required throughout the course and depending on what you want to do in your extra days off will reflect on your exam results - what you put will be obvious in exams as they are face to face practical and viva interview.

University of east London is a good university. It has amazing facilities, with a library open 24/7. The course has great content and is kept up to date and relevant. Each lecturer is an expert in their given field and provide a brilliant insight into particular areas. The way the course is designed gives you freedom to study topics you like. It also gives you skills in many areas such as writing, evaluating, presenting and much more. It's a great university to attend and feels relaxed and comfortable when you are there. Highly recommend.

The course itself is poorly but together as I am only currently studying 1 music related module which is ridiculous considering it is a "music industry management" course. Some lecturers are great and some are terrible. The majority of assessments are essays, with some being group presentations. We have had to do a group essay recently which I think was a bad assessment idea. However, the location of the university itself is brilliant as you are close enough to the centre of London to be able to take part in internships and work experience.

The photography degree at The University of East London is complex. The modules are difficult but you learn a hell of a lot, and although the tutors are tough, they really help you improve in your subject. The facilities here ar excellent, the number of studios and their availabilities are endless and the darkoom is available everyday for you to use, and you can book out high end equipment for 2 days at a time, and they have hasselblads! I would reccomend this course to anyone wanting to pursue a career in photography, the university has excellent industry connections, and you have the change to shoot london fashion weekend in your first or second year, or both if your lucky :)

Great course to learn and great teaching. Wish we could have work experience within the course so we have an early start in employment. In my opinion printi credit in uni should be free.

This is a very interesting and and mind delveoping course. Since i have been studying here i have been able to think more critically by invaluating the main causes of society also crime as a whole the gender behind it and how it contexualise the human nature and social contexts. i personally think this degree is ideal for anyone who has a passion for the general public in the law sector and with the engagement of understanding the criminal aspects of this society.

For a management course this is exceptionally unorganised. A lot of the content feels irrelevant. There is no real help with getting industry experience. A lot of lecturers are unprofessional and fail to provide enough depth on topics. A lot of lectures are cancelled and the time is never made up for. No student life at the university in general.
