Modern languages is a very enjoyable degree. The focus is not only on language learning, but on cultural and social awareness. There are history, politics and culture/social modules available, as well as opportunities to pick up other languages (to a beginners or intermediate level, dependant on selection) such as quechua or italian. The degree includes a compulsory year abroad which is essential for language learning and fluency. The module choices, both before and after your year abroad, are all relevant to your experience in your chosen country and help in widening your awareness and expectations of different countries and cultures.

The course has a really good range of modules on offer from old to modern literature meaning that for students who don't want to do really traditional things like Shakespeare they don't have to. The staff are really good at helping and offering advice however the marking isn't that fair as I have to taper my essay for each marker to what they want. The department is a really nice building and the lecture rooms and seminar rooms are some of the best in the Universiry

Shame really because the university in general is 5 star. Amazing atmosphere in one of the best cities in the world. But this particular music degree. Fucking awful. If you love pop music DO NOT do this degree. So glad to have came out of it alive and still playing and enjoying music. if it wasn't for the friends I made during my time there, it would have been a total waste of time. Looking back after graduating one year ago. This degree is fucking worthless and I would sell the certificate if I could.

This module was called 'Journeys of the Imagination' and we studied romantic era poets including, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and James Hogg. I personally found Hoog and Byron the most stimulating authors on the module, and I chose to write on their works of 'The Pilgrims of the Sun' (Hogg) and 'Cain' (Byron). The best thing about the module was the assessment, as we were asked to submit a formative assessment to begin with mid-semester to begin to form our ideas. We were given feedback, but the essay didn't count, and we were allowed to use as much material from it as we wanted in our final essays. It provided us with a really good grounding in analysing poetry and understanding the tone of the era. We even had an extra workshop near the end of the module to enable us to finalise our essay ideas, and a lecture on the style of writing we could use in framing our ideas.

The teaching for this module is fantastic, there is a lot of variety to the content so you don't sit in lectures getting bored, and the lecturer is really engaging. There's a lot of group work and class discussion which is really beneficial in helping to understand the different topics fully, and getting you thinking about different sides of some of the debates within the field of clinical psychology.

Clinical skills is my favourite part of the course. You begin learning straight away in first year and have a session a week. Some of the things that you learn are tricky but there are study guides and the teachers break it down for you. The teachers are really good. You are assessed once a term on several skills.

As I'm completing a research PhD there are no modules, however there is a research and development program that runs along side the PhD that students have to complete at least 3 hours of a year, although you are unlimited to what you can attend. This offers courses on everything from viva and thesis prep to making the most of conferences, social media and engaging the public with research.

It was such an interesting & exciting module, something you wouldn't get at other Universities! The module leader was so helpful with essay planing and feedback and seminars were always interesting! It was good to study a range of detective texts and see how the genre developed over the century and has encouraged me to read more detective fiction. The structure of the course was good with context lectures then engaging seminars on the text and the forms of assessment meant we handed in an essay plan and then got feedback before writing it which was very helpful!

The passion that was given in teaching this module was displayed in every lecture. As well as the commitemment to helping us learn in aiding our exams and assessment. It expanded on basic knowledge of the third world, using concepts and terms that were more considerate and eye opening. This module also helped sparked and fuel my career interest in international development. Further the assessment methods were specifically designed to use and aid discussion in interviews for jobs post - university.

An interesting and contemporary module, that engages with the issues surrounding indigenous economic and social development in Latin America.
