Enjoyed the content of the module yet did not receive enough guidance in how I would be marked and generally how to combine historical context with literary opinion. Additionally, I found it sometime difficult to read one novel a week yet I think I can blame this on my dyslexia rather than the module's structure itself.

Quechua is an indigenous language which is spoken throughout South America, but is sadly dying out. This means that opportunities to learn the language are few and far between. Although hard, this module was my favourite by far. I learned how to have a conversation in the language and for half the year, we had a native speaker holding our seminars. Each lesson consists of focusing on a different module, e.g. family, social life, work, etc. You are given a vocabulary test from each module each once a week to ensure that your learning is quick but effective. The language is hard to speak, as the sounds are so different from Spanish (you must be learning Spanish in order to be able to choose Quechua as a module) but the lessons are genuinely fun and enjoyable, that the difficulty doesn't get you down!

Really interesting content with a diverse range of areas within the entire chemical engineering spectrum. However there needs to be more emphasis on how this can be applied to within industry and how to use the skills learnt in obtain a good graduate job. As there is very little in the way of showing where to go in terms of distinctions.

I think the course structure is very good. We are constantly being assssed every week through some form of coursework. We have online assessments, problem classes, written assignments and mid-term tests for the majority of our modules. For someone like myself who struggle with stress over exams, this course structure really helped me get over my worries and exam and helped me perform well in the end of term exams as I was used to the exam style format. In addition all my lecturers so far have been extremely approachable and are more than happy to answer any queries even during non office hours. They are very keen for our opinion of their teaching style and lectures as they are keen to improve the quality of their teaching.

The course is well structured with 6 modules in total. First year marks counts 1%, second year counts 33% and final year count 77% so definitely work on final year more. 2 forms of assessments for each module are either exams and/ or exams. Lecture and seminar leaders are approachable and helpful. Apart from studying, there are many opportunities outside the class to take part in and gain experience and it is very good for your CV such as Course Rep, School Rep, Ncl+ Award and many more volunteering positions.

The degree is highly interesting with a wide variety of learning techniques and content. I find having 9am lectures instead of 1pm starts are helpful as it helps you to motivate to do work after lectures instead of sleeping the day away. You're given refresher maths lectures so everyone is all on the same level within semester 1. The weekly assessments are stressful but helpful and it helps to reinforce the learning and techniques needed. However, sometimes the websites which the assesments are set up on are unfair.

Course is demanding and full on. The module's offer a range of content applicable to industry. Some module's lack full clarity and explaining from lecturers, so must be willing to put in good amount of own work. The use of assessments is good as takes some pressure off exams and helps keep busy with tasks outside of lecture time.

The subjects are great, but I'd like to have more seminars as we're a huge group and more marketing and imagination expanding related exercises and tasks.

I am thoroughly enjoying my course as I love the variety of modules I have to study. I am studying an economics module, a financial accounting module, a management accounting and finance module, a management and organisation module, a professional skills module and a business law module. The selection of modules keeps it interesting and has given me skills I didn't have in school. It is a fairly structured course with 2 hours worth of lectures per module each week and every week /2 weeks a seminar on each module. The seminars are extremely helpful as they are in smaller groups and allow you to ask questions and learn from one another. They require preparation which can be daunting but is relevant to what you have studied. The assessment varies between handing in essays, doing computer based assessments, group case studies and presentations and of course exams at the end of each semester. I enjoy the group work element as you can work together, drawing on each others strengths to produce an appropriate piece of work and learn from one and other. Recap is a tool Newcastle use to boost learning. Lecturers record their lectures and put them on an app called blackboard after their lectures so if you miss something or want to hear it again you can. This tool is extremely useful as it allows you to listen to something again and to hopefully understand it better.

First off, the lecturers, tutors, demonstrators and staff are very helpful and more than willing to listen to you.

The structure of the whole course is good because it is generally well organised - there is no huge gap of skills needed between each year.

The course contents are decent! Aside from the usual textbook materials, you get to know what's currently used in the industry as well, which is very important since you need to keep yourself updated in your field.

Teaching of lecturers are great in overall, but has room for improvement of some cases. Some lecturers really know how to explain tough concepts to students, and that's something remarkable.
