This one was one my favourite modules of the course, it was very interesting, and I enjoyed the fact that the students were allowed to pick their own topics to be taught in the seminars. However, the compulsory essay on empiricism was hard to achieve a good grade on because there was only 2,500 words available, and over 1000 students completing it. Therefore, it was hard to be original.

I was very unhappy with this module. I felt the teaching for this module had not been tailored to criminology students at all. I felt the lecturer was very knowledgable however expected us to know a lot of the information that he hadn't taught us making the lectures extremely hard to follow and engage with. I felt this was the general feel throughout the module for the other students and although the lecturer is very helpful, I really did not enjoy this module at all

Interesting subject matter and delivery of information is excellent. Lectures were very interesting and seminars were very engaging. Assessment good as broken down into a presentation and essay so not the same as other modules. Would highly recommend!

Crimes of the Powerful was my favourite module during my time studying Criminology.

The module covered crimes which has not previously been covered on the course. This was mainly what attracted me to select this optional module. Crimes such as war crime, corporate crime and honour crimes (Female Genital Mutilation) were some of the crimes included within the module. This was great as it covered 'taboo' subjects such as Female Genital Mutilation which does not receive much attention.

The module, like many others, is a challenging one that requires critical analysis. This you consider arguments that are controversial and generates a lot of discussion surrounding different topics.

The ideological framework behind the module is based on how patriarchy and power help to facilitate such crimes, especially gender-vased crimes.

This module brings together many different aspects of geology and has allowed me to see many of its applications in the real world. Including mining, environmental restoration, renewable energy sources and many others. Studying the past, current and future mining potential of Cornwall as well as how its scarred landscape is being restored and put to good use.

For general university modules we are taught complex processes and information only suitable for large organisation. Whereas SME module helps us to understand how to use our knowledge and intellect for smaller organisations. It helps us to understand how we could successfully start up our own enterprises and understand the challenges we could face. Our lecturers also arranged directors and owners of real companies which help us to get their views, advice of running an actual real life business. From a course perspective it helps to understand that smaller companies have less resources so we can easily understand their restraints and not offer advice to them once we become accountants that would not fit in well with their targets and put their company at danger.

The teachers were extremely supportive and helpful. They really did go above and beyond to help students outside of lectures.The content was very interesting, however the structure of the module was not always coherent.

The difficulty of learning a completely new, but dead language appeared to be challenging but with the help of staff and teaching through seminars, learning Latin became far more enjoyable than anticipated

This is a hard module to learn, as there is little understanding required, but you will need to learn a new language! Most of the human anatomy is Latin, so the best way I've found to learn it is just to go over it again and again and again, using your body, friends and families bodies, prosections and cadavers, pictures, anything that you can label and explain. The website teachmeanatomy.info is by far the best website I have found, and there are many good books on the subject, of which Grays anatomy is the most famous! It is a very interesting module, and important as you will use it for the rest of your life! It is assessed at the end of the semester in a written exam combined with other modules, and in a practical exam, where we are asked to identify structures in a prosection.
