Still have no idea what this module was about. I don't have a. Lie! Honestly, wtf!I don't know anything about art history so how could I know about its debates and contestations. A lot of prior knowledge in art history was assumed despite no prerequisites being required to participate in the module.Teaching was enthusiastic and honest but sadly, far too complex for most of us!

Fantastic course. All the theory is linked to modern events including Eurozone and financial crisis etc. wish all other courses were like this as it doesn't seem to waste too much time on endless mathematics.

This is a really enjoyable module which both covers the basics to trigger your memory, as well as including some challenging and interesting content. Giro puts in 'smashing science' and 'medical matters' sections which are not assessed and offen remind you of exactly why you love the subject.

Approaches to Criticism is a module that forces the student to delve into philosophical thought as they struggle with concepts such as the meaning of language, race, gender, Marxism and Feminism. It's taught through lectures and seminars (seminars are usually the best) and some of the lecturers are absolutely crazy.

Field and Lab are split into two with a different lecturer teaching you each aspect. In the practicals for lab you learn much of what you did at A Level about gene technology but at greater depth, with the opportunity to do gel electrophoresis etc. Field consists of relatively few lectures in which you learn about techniques to ID species and local habitats where your field trips are based. There are three field trips, one to a woodland (Kennal Vale) studying the ferns and other species found there, one to a heathland (the Lizard) looking at heather species, and one to a rocky shore and reservoir habitat (Swanpool and Gyllngvase) to ID bird species and examine rockpool biodiversity. Your main assignment is to keep a nature journal about your findings from these three trips and document the different species by listing them and drawing and annotating a few. This is worth 15% (5% coming from each field trip). There is also an MCQ test on IDing species for Field worth 25%, and an MCQ exam worth 50% mainly on Lab techniques.

Pro:

Professor Marion Gibson was a delight to be taught by. She made all the subject very interest and her passion was clear.

Con:

Gibson did lack in focus when giving advice to students re: essay writing however.

The Genetics module is very well taught, a complex subject that can be hard to get to grips with is explained in terms that allow you to grasp the concepts and form the intimate facts into a cohesive whole.It has well supervised and interest in practical that combine microscope work with interesting experiments concerning factors like food source on evolution.

The content of Approaches to History, with its focus on historical themes, trends and techniques, is designed to give a broad overview to first year undergraduate students. It is useful in providing the foundations of theoretical approaches that will appear time and again throughout the course of a History degree but the teaching of the module could be improved. Unfortunately, the information given regarding assessments was contradictory and this led to much confusion over what was actually expected of us. I found the material covered in this module difficult at times and was told that it is often only familiar to final year students as opposed to first year undergraduates. With this in mind, I feel that we may have benefitted from exemplar essay question answers and expectations more clearly established from the outset.

This for many people, is a much which is a game changer between staying on the Civil Engineering Course and taking the easy route out and transferring to another as it is the last opportunity to do so. The reason for this is because the module is very difficult and technical. It is also, however, very fun to learn and the module leader, Javadi, is one of the best lecturers I have. He is very experienced in his field and is always around for help or slow things down if you're not following.

This module was not as enjoyable due to the sheer quantity of material we were given to read and study. As a result of studying many books in very little detail, revision for the end of year exam was barely helped by the earlier lecture and seminar materials.
