While the workload is heavy and sometimes arduous, it is only to bring the best out of the students. The course is being readjusted for the better, with coursework accounting for twice as much, students being permitted bilingual dictionaries in the exam and more of an emphasis on grammar.

The module brief was not updated until a couple of weeks before the deadline. The module coordinator was still working on the brief and hence we students had no clue what we were supposed to submit. Although we were informed that it should be handed over for assessment as an essay, we students had no idea what the essay was about and how the format of it should be. Weekly seminars were held which were not helpful. No transparency in terms of how the module will be assessed and marked, i e where the marks are going or why we failed to score high marks.

My favourite module that I have done during my degree. There is a strong focus on both the theoretical and practical side but also how the two link and inform each other. The teaching of this module is excellent and this helps to create a sense of togetherness amongst the students in the seminar which makes sharing your work and ideas a lot less daunting.

This second year module was difficult but fantastic! It was well taught and covered a wide range of texts and authors to give you a real insight as the modernist movement. The amount of reading was quite heavy (and not the most straight forwards of texts to get your head around). It was a good opportunity to study a different genre of text. The module also provided a good platform for discussion and guidance, helping me to understand difficult texts like Ulysses by James Joyce. It was well taught, the feedback was insightful and I really enjoyed it.

This module is generally very mundane, but content was structured really well. Teaching staffs are really committed and experienced. Only thing i would say is that the module can be a bit more exciting, challenging and fun. Then, I think would probably peak student's interest more.

If you enjoy 18th century british literature, this course is great - starting with late 17th century libertinist poetry and working forwards, this course exposes you to a breadth of literary works, focussing on their social and political contexts to give a well-rounded view of the period and its literature, as well as the factors that came into the rise of the novel as we know it today. Fascinating, with a variety of poetry, novels, short stories and articles.
