The actual course in itself is incredibly intrinsic with the content, it goes into the analytical side of some great authors like Homer, Shakespeare, JRR Tolkien and more modern authors like George RR Martin and Simon Crump. My only qualm is there is an overemphasis on Poetry over other creative types like novels.

The course I am studying currently has been what I always dreamed of doing, however I do feel that university does not prepare you at open days for what it is really like as a student midwife. It is amazing don't get me wrong however 12.5 hour shifts while trying to fit in 6 assignments doesn't really work! It is structured poorly I believe as you are given assignment briefs 2 weeks before an essay is due which is not long at all! However placement can be amazing which is the nice part!

At first I thought it wouldnt be too hard, but I underestimated it. I do not like the course and am regretting choosing it to be quite honest. One minute you understand something and he next you don't. They tell you to segment your work in sections so Biopsychology, cognitive psychology and quantitative methods and Statistics. But then there's he different modules and if you didn't study psychology in A level, they just assume you know which goes into which. The lecturers arengl as helpful because they just expect you to know everything. Which you don't - duh. I mean, what would be the point of me coming to university if I already knew the information that they should be teaching. And if they say we should already know this, should they not mention this beforehand before letting us enter this pit of boredom and debt. On the open day they said one thing and now I'm experience a completely different thing. I wanted to understand diseases, not Freud's ideology of children being first attracted to the opposite sex parent.

As stated prior, this module has been the most difficult, because of the timing. In the first term, we spent 12 weeks researching for our other module, whilst having lectures on the theory module. There were very basic dissertation lectures giving background info, but not enough to know how to properly structure and layout the essay. The dissertation were then only allocated towards the end of that term and it was then we were encouraged to come up with our question. There was a deadline for the introduction and first chapter due at the end of February, which we got detailed feedback on depending who our supervisors were (fortunately I had a good one). After this we had regular meetings with the supervisors if and when we required one. Towards the end I would say a little more information was needed in terms of hand-in and our other project for this module, the special study.

This module is about how the middle ages have been portrayed in literature and film, as well as looking at medieval literature, for example the ballad's of Robin Hood, working towards doing a pitch for either a film, television series or a computer game.

It incorporated research skills, as well as the creative skills, as you have to produce a resource survey which is linked to the pitch, as well as a pitch bible, which also involves producing a scene from the film, series or game.

All the technicians are very helpful. The studios stay open for longer hours when final years are present near deadlines which is very helpful. Sometimes feedback can be limited to a project which means it won't help you with future ones. Each project is different which allows you to gain a lot of different skills within the production side of fashion. There is always plenty of sewing machines however depending on the time or day, pattern cutting space is limited. There are also plenty of mannequins for both womens and menswear. You are also given fabrics for free with this module which is definitely a positive for us students!

In conclusion the problem set out to solve was tackled by following a logical design process and shows that the goal of designing an eco-trailer was met. The design hits the eco market without having the usual cost that these company’s want to charge, instead the group decided to take an approach of using materials such as aluminium that will save the consumer money but will also deliver a quality product. The project meets the worlds growing trend in eco-friendly products that save money and the environment.

This module is highly enjoyable due to the fact that it deals with real world issues which are currently going on now. It also looks at issues such as the BP oil spill and what impacts that had on not only the business but the environment.

This is by far the most useful module that I have had through the two years at university.

Consumer behaviour and experiential marketing is very useful and uses many real life business examples to show students how companies are able to promote their products using current trends.

The modules also consists of an insight into psychology and allows students to explore how the consumer brain works in relation to marketing and branding. It is very interesting to learn about how important it is to make sure all details are correct during experiential marketing and how vital it is to make sure you understand the target market.

This module is probably the most beneficial and can be used in real life, during volunteering and also on placement. This is due to the importance of marketing for all businesses. CB and EM will help students during placement year and will provide them with skills that you cannot learn in other modules, such as consumer experience.

Overall, I would highly recommend this module for anyone, as I feel that marketing is a vital part of making a business successful.

In this module, you are taught how to identify unknown compounds and characterise known compounds using spectroscopic methods. The teachers are very good at explaining how to do this and ensure every student understands using very thorough explanations and step by step methods. I definitely recommend doing this module.
