The module was superbly constructed, and the teaching was excellent. Containing both theoretical and applied elements, it was varied and fascinating, exploring a wide range of issues in sufficient depth to provide a starting point, whilst allowing the freedom to engage with our own interests and explore them as we so desired.

The course lacked a thorough structure, and many of the lectures would have been more useful in a different order, based on the requirements of the essay. The feedback available on the essays was vague and incomplete, and the group project was not conducive to anyone's happiness.

The module of biochemistry covers some of the more challenging aspects of the course. It covers topics from protein structure through to molecular biomechanics, however despite the difficulty this module can pose it is extremely interesting as it explores avenues most students are unexperienced in. The module offers many opportunities for assessment, such as online multiple choice quizzes in preparation for exams and practical lab sessions.

content & structure overall for this course is good. however the examples given through the video could be improve by giving a much complex and 'examination like' question. the tutorial for teaching is very helpful. i enjoyed my tutor session very much.

This module is about the electronic device. The structure of this module is systematic but not easy to learn. But this module provide enough material to study with the notes and the exercises. The lecturer is so friendly.

This is perhaps the most diverse module offered on the first year course. It's tries to teach us a basic core skill base that is essential for any budding engineer. It consists of sketching, including hand drawing and computer aided design. But also computer programming which is becoming ever more important in this day and age, and also basic surveying skills that every civil engineer uses when they graduate, including usage of an automatic level and theodolite. The broad nature of the module makes it exciting, as you never know what you could be doing next.

Aerospace engineering is a wide subject area covering many aspects of engineering. The degree includes a year out in Industry where you get to encounter and deal with reaI-life engineering problems, both as a team and individually. You get help and advice from the University concerning Placements which is done mostly in your penultimate year of study.In my first year we covered different topics including Mechanics, Maths, Control systems, Fluid flow, Materials and Electronis&Electrical modules. In the second year, you get to choose between the Aeromechanics stream or Avionics stream. This is good as it helps in specializing in interesting topics.

The course is great. It includes practical skills necessary to be a journalist and rigourous short hand lessons. Short hand is not something every university does or places such an immense focus on, however Sheffield does that. You also learn about the ethical side of journalism; how your words can make or break somebody.

I enjoy my course overall, the lecturers are really really friendly and you're always welcome to pop over to their offices to ask questions or send them an email. I think the course is well structured, particularly the Hispanic side, however sometimes the Germanic section is really slow at giving feedback. I think that the teaching is to a good standard but it goes fast! I really enjoy how much the department of languages pushes its students to try new things - there are lots of options particularly in the second and last years of the course and there are plenty of summer placements and interesting term-time activities to do.
