Computing Science at Glasgow University is a very good degree to get for the future (or so it would seem, taking account of all the startups that are going on and also the deficit in the work industry).

It is taught from a very low level, which should encourage anybody who is enthusiastic about it - even people who haven't tried programming before - to get working on it, learn coding and make a difference.

As far as the Psychology part is concerned I believe that it is a quite competitive and stressful degree to complete. They make it unnecessary challenging and difficult. Although I never had problems with my great that is my opinion. Compared to other students from other universities that study Psychology and I know of, the university of Glasgow just makes everything so much more difficult, including assignments that are 60 pages long.

As far as the Theatre Studies department is concerned I believe that it is great. Every single professor is so inspirational and ready to help you with anything you need.

The course was excessively abstract and did not engage with a wide range of teaching or resources. It was poorly communicated and uninteresting, and was the sort of course that made me want to give up economics. There was no indication of how the content or theory might be relevant to the economic problems facing the world today.

The module of 'Doing Global Business' provided me with an in-depthunderstanding of the essentials of undertaking cross-border business, comprising overviews of world business; theories of trade and foreign direct investment and international business regulation; and practical aspects of how to do business internationally.

This module is highly interactive through group discussions and case studies. This provides me with the opportunity for personal development in many areas such as: in developing analytical and problem-solving techniques, to hone my independent and team/ group-working skills and especially gain more confidence in public-speaking.

I throughly enjoyed the course and this was hugely down to the way in which it was structured. Groups were formed and each one would be responsible for teaching the class a chapter each week, and this would be followed by discussion and food. I felt like I always learned so much from this subject due to its 'chilled-out' nature and openness.

The lecturer was absolutely incredible, he really challenged us think in so many ways and out of the box.

This module was particularly enjoyable for me, with clear notes making learning easier. A wide range of renewable energy was covered including solar, wind, geothermal, tidal; as well as non-renewable including nuclear, oil, gas, coal.The difficulties in transition from non-renewable to renewable was also made clear.Each topic was fairly in-depth with around 12 different topics of energy. This gave a workload comparable to most 20 credit modules whereas this is only a 10 credit module.

This is a compulsory course for all final year students in economics but it is very poor, despite it being worth 30 credits (two typical economics courses worth). The grading was erratic, no one knew what was expected of them and we had very little contact hours despite the credit worth. The idea of the course is good but the execution is poor.

Theatre Studies Work Placement module gives students a great opportunity to get out and experience some first hand theatrical productions. Depending on what exact area you're looking at, eg technical, directing, sound, etc., the uni tries to find you a placement that will encourage or inform your decisions in later career.

This course has been fantastic. My lecturer has been so encouraging and helpful at all stages of the class, giving in depth feedback for all assessment and really striving to encourage the class to explore the subject deeply. The assessment has been well structured and conductive to the learning of the course. It has been both a complex and in depth exploration of the topic, addressing both primary and secondary sources, but this complexity has been well explained so I have at no point felt out of my depth. The content has been fascinating and the structure was both chronologically and thematically clear.

This is a compulsory course for all fifth-years doing Astronomy & Physics. The first half of the course was taught by a new professor who is really good as a supervisor and as a specialist in his field. However, he was constantly unprepared for his lectures, made a lot of mistakes in the lecture notes. The second half of the course, on the other hand, was taught by a different lecturer, who fixed up a situation.

I really enjoyed this section of the module as it allowed me to complete a placement at a new record label. The placement was fairly self contained which allowed me to exercise my own creativity and ideas into the business as well as learn how the company operated. We has to evaluate the business and offer our criticisms and recommendations for future developments. The placement let me meet new contacts for future employment and gain new skills and experiences.
