Confused by previous comment - No group work or presentations were included in the assessment, which was comprised entirely of two 2,500 word reflective assignments.

Going to review purely because it was the weakest of all of the modules I took, the essays we were given very little instruction and background on although the lecturer was really good it just felt a bit pointless doing this module with the amount of time and content there was

This module aim to introduce you to the main critical theories in a chronological fashion. This compulsory module feels like a nice balance to the rest of the modules which are composed of more A level 'traditional' English type material. This module seemed to follow on very well from my A level politics studies. It works very well, not only to give you some grounding in perspectives to write your essays from, but also in thinking about the wider context of literature (or suppress it in the case of new criticism!) Whilst it can be challenging at time, I particularly enjoyed the module for widening my perspectives.

I loved this module very much as the teaching was very easy to follow. We were given a small paperback text book with everything we needed to know in it condensed to revision style notes. This was extremely helpful as we were able to find anything in here quickly and easily. The other modules provided large, heavy books which we had to learn which was not as helpful, therefore i enjoyed criminal law and its teaching the most.

I have chosen to review this module because it is one of the only ones that has managed to both keep my full attention, as well as be taught in a relatable manner (relatable to the real world with examples). Graham and Stephen did a great job of properly explaining management tactics and situation scenarios which really helped me understand the topics. Each week we had case studies and videos in lectures to help connect the different HRM practices with real people in the real world. They truly (especially Graham) embraced multiple learning styles in the room and so this kept things interesting and more engaging. Rather than just having a PowerPoint with text and clip art. As well as this, they couldn't have helped students enough, any queries or worries were dealt with very swiftly, thoroughly and PROPERLY, unlike most of my other lecturers in the university.

Having the opportunity to pick up another language at university has been one of the highlights of my university degree. The module has provided me with a brilliant introduction to Italian grammar and its structures, as well as the country's culture and habits. The tutor is extremely supportive and friendly, and I had some of my best lectures at university learning Italian. There's something about another language that gives me a personal level of satisfaction, and I only hope to take this language to a higher level. The module could not have been taught better, and the way the course has been structured has definitely enhanced my experience of the course. Learning was surprisingly easy, and if you've studied another European language before, you will definitely fly through the course. Overall very useful, and I plan to use those linguistic skills on my travels in the future.

Study Italian! Languages open so many different doors, you will definitely not regret your choice.

Before doing this course, I was initially concerned about having to do statistics, as maths is not my strongest point. When taking the first few lectures, I felt that I was going to struggle and felt uneasy about having to take this module. However, the lecturer was incredibly supportive, understanding and sensitive towards all members of the class, and to those who may find the module difficult. The university and lecturer provided a 'stats' help desk twice a week, in which students could have one to one time to help work through questions. I found that the statistics module was the most organised, well paced, and detailed lecture, with plenty of help available if needed.In the practical classes, in which we would often practice on statistic questions, there were many members of staff on hand willing to help, who were also very patient and friendly. I feel that the structure of this module was well presented, and students, including myself, were able to learn at an easier pace. One other aspect that I was really pleased with was that the statistics help classes were available everyday for the last couple of weeks building up to exam time. There were also mock exams and practice papers that were given in order to help gain an insight into the layout.From feeling like I was unable to do this module, with all the support I actually ended up passing both of the statistics exams and gained a pleasing mark for myself.

Coursework is in the form of 2,000 word essay on either evidence to support psychotherapy for anxiety disorders or psychological treatments for alcohol disorders. The examination consists of 10 shot answer questions. The module is delivered well by an enthusiastic module convener and the tutorials were thought provoking.

This module is aimed at giving an overview of the major challenges facing our political world today. It covered many subjects from the environment to terrorism and human rights. I found the lectures to be very constructive givin an overview of the basic concepts, however it is necessary to do in depth reading on the subject both before and after to prepare for exam content. The resources available for this were fantastic, with recommended books, articles and videos for each lecture. The only negative point o would argue is that the seminars didn't seem to be structured in a useful way -every week was the same debate of each side of the argument, I think it would be better to have diverse seminars, with debates, presentations and essay writing skills workshops. Overall I would certainly recommend this module and helped me choose modules for next year as each week covered a different topic.
