Good range of modules however students are not always allocated the ones that they choose, and also a certain amount of modules per sub-section must be chosen, therefore I didn't get the chance to study some of the things I would have liked. However, this alternatively was a benefit in some circumstances where I found I actually enjoyed things I hadn't expected, e.g. theatre industries.The teaching was to a high standard most of the time, and my personal tutor was very approachable and had a good balance between friendliness and professionalism.More core texts should be available in the library or at very discounted prices as I ended up spending hundreds on books which were used for one lecture, whilst my science student housemates were provided with booklets and lecture notes weekly to use for their assessments - for free!English specific lecture rooms would have been nice but using others were not an inconvenience.Assessment feedback was timely and helpful.

Very difficult degree. Enjoyable for most parts. There could have been more guidance as felt it was very independent. Some good modules, some not so much. Exams in my opinion need rethinking. Essay writing is not a test of intelligence, but a test of memory.

You won't find more committed tutors anywhere else. The current 15/16 staff on the Creative and Professional Writing course is truly outstanding and never flinch at going the extra mile. I know my personal tutor personally spends time on his weekends looking up scholarships or master programs for his students.The classes are usually under twenty people so is a good size for hearty discussion and one-on-one attention. They are beginning to limit the module choices due to the University deciding they want to cut down on creative subjects, but I would really recommend this course.

Course is interesting, poorly organised but ultimately a good degree.

You will have to travel to Derby from Nottingham every day and that is a massive pain (up to 1.5 hours on bus per day) from Nottingham but has the bonus that you will spend a lot of time with your course mates and as a result will became great friends. You can live in Derby but it's a bit boring and you'll be entirely separated from Nottingham students.

Course is a general medical education studying from immunology, respiratory disease, pharmacology, cancer biology, reproduction to neuroscience and endocrinology. You will cover a lot. Very interesting and progressive science. You will be a credible scientist by the end with enough information to direct you to medicine / research careers.

As a university Nottingham is fantastic and you'll have a lot of fun, great city: cheap, good nights out and loads to do. Really good uni as well and ranks well. Amazing employment statistics.

As regards to GEM (graduate entry) applications after, the course does not particularly dispose you to getting in. There are some unis that only take science undergrads for GEM. But like i said in no way is this degree a shoe into gem. It's probably the most competitive degree you can apply for, so be warned. Also bear in mind after 3 years you may not want to do medicine any more. I am applying but most decide not to.

Modules are good with decent research labs / Tutors etc. It's a great degree for medical scientists and if you are considering research career as well as medicine, definitely right for you.

But if you do choose to do this course, you won't go wrong it s a great degree (but bear in mind you'll have to commute to Derby every day). Also one thing to note, you may want to check this, but as far as I know this course isn't accredited for Biomed. What that means is you'll graduate with a BSc, but you won't be qualified as a biomedical scientist, so if you want to do research you'll need to do another quick course.

Degree structure needs to be better in terms of what modules can be chosen in which semester as sometimes you need prerequisites and you miss out because the prerequisite is in the spring term. Other than that the course isn't challenging enough. A lot of times you can do decently enough as long as you have done the past papers and tutorial questions properly

Overall I believe Theology and Religious Studies to be the best degree I could have possibly chosen. The teachers, seemingly by nature of the individuals they have to be to chose their life path, are incredibly kind, supportive and charismatic individuals. The course content and structure is more varied than I initially expected, with "Theology" and "Religious Studies" being equally weighted, whereas my interest were mostly theological. However, this did not end up being a negative thing as the cultural-historical studies I was introduced to in the "Religious Studies" side of my course fast became my favourite area of study. My only criticism regarding this would be that it was only late in the year that this distinction was made clear, and were in not the case that I actually enjoyed the content I didn't expect more this would have proven disastrous to my enjoyment and engagement in first year. Finally assessment, being coursework focussed, is perfect for this degree, allowing the synoptic approach vital for an informed discussion of Theology and Religious Studies.

My degree is by no means easy, although a BA it is a qualifying law degree. Although the content can be difficult the expertise of some of my tutors makes the learning a lot easier, there is however a very visible gap between for example, my best tutor (a qualified lawyer) and my 'worst' one (a phd student). Also there is a considerable gap in teaching between law and gerrman the latter one being much more laid back. Most of law modules I have taken this year are assessed in full at the end of the year - 30 credit exams are very stressful.

My course is absolutely fine but nothing special. it has more contact hours than at my previous university, from which I transferred due to personal issues, but it still suffers from the fact that the teachers aren't really there because they want to teach, but because they want to research and have to do teaching as part of that. There's no real enthusiasm for teaching or dedication for helping students who are struggling, particularly with the languages aspect. They therefore cater much more to those who are already excelling than those who are getting left behind, who are generally just allowed to be left there. This being said, there's nothing inherently negative about it, there are interesting modules available, if not very varied and if you're very talented it certainly allows you to do well.

The lecturers are very passionate about their specialties, they always encourage you to come and discuss the topic with them. Because of this they make the lectures interesting and try to make the 2 hours as upbeat as possible. Personal tutors are there to help, mine this year was lovely and i could talk to her about anything from stress and and any struggles to exam questions or guidance. The degree is very broad and i have found myself interested in completely new things. The wide ranging topics introduced in first year really open you up to all the possibilities and interest you in new things. All seminar tutors have been helpful and responded to my emails almost instantly. They are always there to help, especially around exam time they do what is right for the specific group and work around our needs to make us feel at ease.

The Course is well constructed, it challenges the student. The comprehensive modular programme really challenges the student. The facilities in campus are abundant and readily available. The library resources are highly impressive. The quality foe teaching is high. Overall The University of Nottingham is the best University in the East Midlands.
