Tyr course is interesting and lacks organisation, things can sometimes be a bit last minute when it comes to information. The staff go above to support you any way they can throughout the degree. Equipment is on hand when needed but you have to book it not just collect when wanted, the people on the desk can seem rude at times. When it comes to feedback this can sometimes be late the university has a 15 working day turnaround but you might end up waiting longer than this.

Studying Criminology and Sociology at Salford will provide you with a sound understanding of the key conceptual and substantive issues involved in the study of society, crime and criminal justice. This course will develop your critical awareness skills, introduce you to the nature and scope of research, both in the field and as a process of information generation. You will also be able to connect to key institutions. This degree is designed to acquaint you with the general theories, typical methods and key studies of criminology [especially sociological criminology], and sociology, and to indicate their application to issues in contemporary societies. It uses the modular system to deliver an innovative curriculum with a wide range of optional subjects which serves the local community, is linked to research of international and national quality, and is responsive to the interests and needs of today's students. It draws upon the existing provision within Criminology and Sociology at Salford, using the diverse work in the School on the major role played by various social institutions, and in particular, examines how crime, deviance, justice, law, regulation, surveillance and punishment are constructed, maintained and disturb the social order at all levels. Our aim is to provide a deep criminological and sociological insight into the nature of social relations, crime and justice.

As I stated previously, this course is supposed to be the perfect balance of tech and business. This courses relevance to my degree and my career is minimal. Of course ethics cannot be disregarded as its the layers on which the business is built on. However, in an academic setting possible more relevant to law and ethics students. It would have been more preferable for ethics to be a single subject within a module.

This module gave me the opportunity to make a poster on cancer bio markers as a group. Team work, time management, research skill and communication skill all came out to play. This module is assessed 40% and 60% exams. Mostly covering pathologies in depth, it is like a sequel to a module from my second year module pathophysiology.

This module could be more interesting. The speaking classes are amazing (mostly because of the teacher), but the written and translation components are not as good. Poor quality teaching in both of these areas means that it is difficult to learn and makes these areas difficult to enjoy.

Clinical immunology, for me, is the corner stone module of my course. The content i have learnt throughout this module has enabled my understanding in all my other modules. For somebody studying anatomy and mechanisms of disease, you first must understand mechanisms of the bodies own (immune) system and the interactions involved in the fight of foreign bodies.

You go on a placement for at least 5 days in a journalism/PR organisation and you need to submit articles from it as your portfolio. It's a great experience which you then need to reflect on.

In this module you learn about digital workflows using Pro Tools. This is taught in tandem with a Pro Tools 101 certification test.The module teaches you how to plan an audio project, including creating an audio script and how to adhere to very precise time specifications. It also teaches production methods from the recording process, whether that be voice overs in a recording studio to location sound and foley. Then it moves into teaches about the mixing and mastering processes involved.

The project required for the module is to create a radio programme of exactly 5 minutes in length. You are primarily marked for the final mixdown, but also for the processes used within the mixing and mastering phase as well as how efficient and well laid out your project is.As well as that, you are also marked on your initial planning of the project.

The module was taught very well and the results showed that, with a lot of people walking away with high quality work that is fantastic for building a portfolio.

An excellent lecturer but the Seminars are taught by a variety of people. As someone who got a new teacher , the experience was not as positive as I would have hoped. Whilst clearly intelligent she failed to explain things in an ordered manner and the pace slow. However the module as a whole was helped by the lecturer who was engaging and coherent.
