The overall content of the course is quite satisfied. But, some module is not well structured. Therefore, it is necessary for the student to consult the module convenor. Meanwhile, the university should give a brief on each module on the moodle site or either lecture from the lecturer instead of just start the module on the 1st day of the class. In addition, the lecturer and the Phd students helper are very helpful on guiding the students. Next, the teaching programme here is quite satisfied. To point out that the lecture hall and the teaching facilities are good. But, the self study area such as the computer room or library seat/table are always full. So, the university should put more effort on it. In order to improve the quality of the learning of the student. Last but not least, the food in the university is quite boring because the canteen didn’t change the menu every semester or it remain all year long .

Economics at the University of Nottingham is a course that I thoroughly enjoy and would recommend to anyone considering a future in economics. The lecturers and tutors are all extremely proficient at delivering the course to a very high standard and while the content of the course may be similar to that provided by other universities, the delivery of such content is much better. In terms of career prospects, there is a great emphasis placed on spring weeks and summer internships for prospective Investment Bankers and Management Consultants and I believe that this has helped me a lot in my quest to find employment after I graduate. Assessment in year 1 is almost exclusively by exam while in years 2 and 3 coursework starts to play a bigger role in the degree.

The teaching staff that I've come across have all been excellent: both knowledgeable and approachable which I think are the two most important things, really, when it comes to being a teacher.The content and pace of the modules is generally good -- although if you do Greek from beginners, you will move quickly.I appreciate that pretty much every lecturer uses powerpoint/online resources in a useful way (for the most part, if you miss a lecture, you can get all of the information either from the slides or from the reading or a combination of both).Academic and pastoral support are great; I can't really say enough of how much support there is and how much help they are willing to offer you.I tend to find that I want to take more modules than is possible which is obviously preferable to not wanting to take any. I think they largely have a decent range of modules, in a variety of areas so everyone should be able to find at least a couple they will enjoy.

My one real annoyance with the degree is that, doing joint honours, I can't take both Greek and Latin at the same time, which they did not tell me about before I started and for which there is currently no solution.Also, there's no member of staff in the school of English whose area of research/expertise is Forensic Linguistics which is a shame because I'm currently taking it as a module on my semester abroad and would love to pursue it further but without a member of staff in that area, it's unlikely at best.

The physiotherapy course at Nottingham is amazing! The lecturer's are incredible, they help students through everything from academic issues to personal ones. However, it's not one for the faint hearted, it's hard work! 1st year focuses on preparing students for clinical placement with thorough teaching of the anatomy and placements in 2nd and 3rd year are tough alongside essays, dissertations etc. BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT! I've had an amazing time and wouldn't trade my experience for anything! Choosing Nottingham means you're taught to a high level whilst feeling supported and like a voice!

The content is relaventto practice and is well structured. The lecturer explains the theory well and ensures things are interesting. For the assignment we was well prepared and it was clear what we needed to do. Overall I really enjoyed doing this module.

I really enjoyed this module and have nothing negative to say about it. The staff were all brilliant, very engaging and helpful if you have questions. It was great to have the chance to visit psychiatric wards as this dispelled some misconceptions that I had about the speciality. The assessment is all coursework which I found great as you could prepare for it and it got it out of the way before exam season. Not much guidance is given for the coursework which could be off putting but I found it refreshing to be able to produce an original piece of work without being constrained to strict requirements/mark schemes.

Despite having to trek across campus to my lectures for this module at the very end of the day (4-5pm lectures). And despite the rather scary lecturer. Microbiology, though a lot of work, turned out to be rather interesting. It took a while to begin understanding, though once I'd got hold of the basics, I found it rather enjoyable.

This module focuses on the aspects of being a teacher that aren't directly about your subject. We look at the pastoral elements, being a form tutor, specific pupils needs (SEN, EAL etc.) dealing with diificult situations, discrimination and bullying, safeguarding, health and safety, the link between school and community. It covered some very important issues and we often had time to go into deep discussions about these. The lectures varied in quality from engaging and very useful to boring and misinformed.

This module went at a good pace and was always easy to understand with problem classes fortnightly and frequent examples in lectures. Coursework also helped to prepare for the exam.

Taught by Thomas Morton, it is one of the rare modules that people would show up for at 9 a.m. Morton was highly engaging and also had excellent usage of powerpoint slides that made them useful and aesthetically pleasing. Everyone's favourite module, by far.
