The course could be better organised with regards to deadlines and feedback . Our design module demands a lot of work which includes manufacturing but the department does not provide adequate materials or tools, nor does the department provide enough time in the workshops . First years are restricted in their access of the fabrication labs and are only allowed at certain times on certain days depending on the assignment which is not realistic when taking account of the work load other group design meetings and assignments it is not possible to have those Specific time slots free to complete the assignment. Also with regards to the design module the solid modelling assignment set was given without much guidance with regards to the actual skills required to complete the assignment and it was expected that we would have been prepared to complete the assignment however it took us around 30 hours of research overall and trial and error before being able to even make a dent in the assignment , the module team did not adequately prepare us for this.

However, the aerospace module was well planned and well executed with a lot of useful content and well prepared lecturers.

On the other hand the maths module was excellent content wise and will be extremely useful in the rest of the course , however the tutorial lecturer was not well excited and just seemed to over complicate . The delivery of this module was poor however it was well organised.

Overall the delivery of all modules are average except the aerospace module which was excellent even though it was challenging it was enjoyable .

All modules are well organised , however overall I think the faculty could support the students more and workshops should be open to student at all times unless they are full, it is understandable that final years or masters students get priority however, restricting the workshops to first year shows that the university looks at the first year of the course as unimportant , which is not acceptable because the result of my first year will determine what placements are available to me and the university is putting this at risk , the university needs to come to some sort of arrangement and invest more in workshops to make them more accessible.

Also assessment feedback is often returned late and with regards to mechanical test they and not assessed well with 4 question multiple choice determining 15% of the module , it just seems lazy.

This module was the most interesting for me as I hope to pursue a career in obstetrics and gynaecology. We had placements in both paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology. The best part of the O&G module was the week on labour ward.

The course is broad yet useful. You learn most of the industry material in class while challenging yourself with hard yet interesting assessments. The lecturers are very nice, helpful and fun.

gives me a basic understanding of how a production crew works to achieve an outcome that we can be proud of, all the understanding of how TV has progressed through the generations is ver very useful to see all the technological and creative advances made in the industry. so the course is very enriching.

the content and structure of the history course is very good and i would recommend it to anyone who is interested in humanities. Most of the time the modules are well structured, although the content at times can be overwhelming it is full of interesting information. Structure depends on the teacher, certain teachers have pre-planned lessons whereas others have not. Although i have a preference for well prepared teachers, those who have not prepared a lecture are able to spend more time explaining a certain historical event without worrying about the next section. The forms of assignment are okay with second year assignments much better than first year. I think for first year students, teachers should incorporate lectures on how to answer exam questions because this was not taught well. Ii have thoroughly enjoyed history however i would prefer if they offered other historical periods or events instead of the same type; nazism, WW1, Cold War and would offer maybe Ancient Greece, Roman Empire, more on the British Empire, Medieval Europe

I'm a first year student, so I don't have a full picture of the course but from what I have experienced so far it's been very good. The lecturers have all be engaging and largely helpful with regards to settling us into an academic style of learning. The course is blended; the assessments take a range of different forms, from power points, to recordings, to exams. While it's all positive, the transition from higher education to further education is difficult, especially given that students all come from different learning backgrounds. I'm aware that we have a critical reflection module next semester, the ideology being it should aid us to write critically; this could be moved forward to be one of the first modules in order to help equal out the playing field for those struggling with academia.

So far I feel my degree has been going fairly well, one criticism would be that I feel there is a slight lack in structure in the scheduling in lectures. I.e: different lectures on different lectures everyday rather than focusing on a topic a day....otherwise it has been great.

My degree is amazing and i love what im doing...however there are some clashes between the two departments that make it difficult for me to attend all the sessions which i believe puts me a disadvantage immediately

Computer science here at Hertfordshire so far, seem very well structured. It's easy to learn everything that they put out in front of you. The course supports those who're struggling really well too. I really appreciate the help they've given me.

I am a first year student. The course is split into academic time and placement time, this is 50/50 throughout the course. In the first year we learn human biology and the healthy adult to gain an understanding of what a healthy and 'normal' patient should be like in relation to bloody pressure and when monitoring etc. We obviously then apply this biology to nursing and learn how to take observations. You also learn how to improve your academic writing and to think critically and reflect on your actions, therefore allowing you to improve and progress along the course. You also get to work with our healthcare professionals including other nurses and other professionals from the school of health and social work. Hertfordshire has a great reputation in relation to nursing and are well respected on employment. I have enjoyed my time here so far and the workload is very manageable, whilst still challenging. They provide many resources to enable your success and have many great lecturers.
