All Medieval History PhD students are required to develop competency in the Latin language in order to complete originally research. For students who come into the degree course with some Latin, this is done through an upper level seminar in the language. Texts for this course are chosen by the students, meaning that everyone gets a chance to do their own work and learn more about the interests of others.

This module is one of my favourite modules. It is a topic that I am very interested in. This module looked at the different types of play, different play theorist and how this can be incorporated in the UK curriculum. The tutor of this module was very interested in the topic and therefore shared her interest with us and made the lectures a lot more engaging and enjoyable.

The training facilities for PHD researchers at the Uni are rather poor. the courses are not informative and usually biased and opinionated facilitators make them not worthwhile. as a Phd student we dont have any other modules.

Stars and Galaxies serves as an introduction into Astrophysics. Although taken as a discovery module, it was personally a favourite module.The course content was well explained, with lecture slides accessible before lectures to further improve understanding. Hand outs are given out in lectures as a physical resource to see the stellar processes you are learning about. These were a great support in remembering such processes as a visual aid ensured they were well remembered.The workshops were the best given across the course as they were given in much smaller groups allowing for more individual help to be given.Questions were well varied, ranging from mathematical to some wordy more essay style questions. The course works were quickly marked and returned with clear explanations of why marks were given. This was the same with exams.Difficult to find fault in the module, definitely highly enjoyable.

Module consists of studying in depth four modern French texts which are highly enjoyable and thought provoking. 2 hours a week are dedicated to the module (1 hour of lecture, 1 hour of seminar). Seminars allow you to develop your own interpretations of the texts.

This module gave me the opportunity to study a range of ideas within social insects and primarily focused on eusociality. The assessment was split over a news and views article and an exam which I thought was a varied way to assess our understanding. The teaching was excellent and the lectures were engaging. The content really interested me which enhanced my overall enjoyment of the module.

This module is taught by a fantastic teacher, who shows a genuine passion for the subject, and knows what he is talking about. The module is especially useful due to how it explains the practicalities of the theories you learn. The textbook is great too, and the assessment is well-structured and straightforward, and the course content is highly interesting too.

This module entailed an independent research project on a given topic that you choose. The start of the course focused on researching and organising a list of references in the first half of the year. This was beneficial as the deadline for references forced you to work on the report early on and helped plan out the report. Then the main focus was writing the report, which was not too difficult after in depth research. However after handing in a first draft the lack of feedback led to less improvements for the final report. This then led to a grade that was not up to standard compared to my other results for the year.

Criminal law is very interesting, what I enjoy about criminal law is the very formulaic way in which you can judge cases, each crime must have a Mens rea and an actus reus. This makes it a little easier to see the elements of a crime or law which can be difficult in other areas of law. It also has a practical side to it, you can go and visit the courts and see criminal law in practice, this is not always the case with other modules,

The content in semester 1 is particularly interesting, I enjoyed learning about culture in business. The focus on country profiles in semester 2 was a bit too structured, which made it less interesting, but the concepts were still there. The lecturers are enthusiastic! And there was an excellent Skype experience with a leading researcher in the subject.
