One of my least favourite modules although the group tasks were enjoyable. The content was hard to understand and learn for the exam and the lecturer missed a lot of lectures.

So far my course has been really good, the course is structured well ensuring a sections well understood before moving on. It assesses throughout the semester so there is less pressure put on the end of module exams. The lectures are well structured and engaging as well.

Have really enjoyed my time so far at Keele. The course content is interesting (some more than others but that may just be my personal preference) and I have found it very relatable but also challenging. The forms of assessment are varied and have so far included essays, reflective diary entries, and shorter pieces of work, and generally the feedback has been really constructive and also returned fairly quickly. Would definitely recommend the geography course at Keele.

This course is well structured at Keele, and gives plenty of choice. During the first year it's mainly compulsory modules, however as you progress through the years you get more choice in the modules you want to do.The majority of lecturers give out gapped notes containing all the theory and they'll fill out the missing bits with examples during the lectures, which I've found extremely useful. Assessment is mainly exam based with usually around 20% of your final module mark based on continuous assessment in the form of either class tests or take home assignments. Overall I have throughly enjoyed this course

The lecturers are awesome, the degree is hard work but I think it's worth it in the end. Everyone on the course is close and it's really enjoyable.

This is one of the modules I enjoyed the most during the course of my degree. The subject is self is very interesting and current in neuroscience topics. The module content was advanced but not too much that it was well understood. The assessments were a good learning process because it helped engage in the subject and when it got to exams I had already learnt most of the materials. We had laboratory sessions and a few trips to the medical school which made the module even more interesting.

This is a very interesting course with content taught by a range of clinical professionals rather than university staff. Although this has ensured the content is interesting and up to date it makes exam revision difficult as you are unable to guess what the questions may be. Saying that the course is very well delivered with suggestions given for key areas to focus on. The assessment this year was in the form of an essay on a subject that we had not been taught and although at first this was daunting it has allowed for a lot of people to gain a higher tear mark due to all reading done for the assignment being considered outside reading.

Mathematical Biology is one of my favourite modules in third year at Keele.

It is well taught and it is very organised. It is laid out perfectly for the semester and there are different areas of interest. It starts easy but it progresses in complexity well but sometimes a bit too quickly.

There are three class tests and one exam but it would be preferable to have the class tests weighted more or maybe some assignments.

I have found this course difficult to compete with my fellow students, the majority of the class don't want to study Biomedical Science at all and are only there as a route into medicine.  Meaning that the vast majority of students were much more interlectually minded than myself and focuses on the first class degrees so they would be accepted onto post-graduate medicine.  That asside the course is actually very interesting with a wide variety of in-depth subjects covered, although this posed a problem as there was a lack of choice in terms of electives, none in the first years and only 2 our of three options in the second year.  The individual moldules are taught by many different lecturers, each have their own learning style, therefore teaching quality varied between modules.  Also, from a biomedical point of view, it was great that the lecturers previously worked in the field so teach based on past experiences.  Whereas, I think most other lecturers have never left the educational setting.

Some feedback has been given on an individual basis where the lecturer has made a 10 minute screencast video on the the good, the bad and the ugly, which was the best feedback I've received allowing my to improve in other modules.  Whereas, in another module at the same time I received handwritten annotations in handwritting which I couldn't read, so all feedback was useless.

The support Keele has given me has been second to none, they have never failed to support my support my downs and praise my ups.  My personal tutor desearves an award for the help she has given me.

I greatly enjoyed this module. All lectures were very well structured and the laboratory session that took place in the Medical School complemented well with one of the lectures (liver pathology). The only unfortunate situation was that the students were not able to go for an external trip to a morgue to watch an autopsy taking place, however this is very difficult to organise, so it is understandable that this trip did not happen. Assessment was constructive and feedback was quick.
