Although not everyone is a fan of statistics, I found that this was my favourite module in my second year of university. The lecturer is excellent, goes over and beyond to help students, her examples to understand the concepts better are always helpful and sometimes even funny. I really enjoyed this module.

Logic is by far my most enjoyable module. its seen as the link between maths and philosophy. It is very complex and mathematical for a philosophy degree so most people either love it or hate it. The lecturer is a very funny and laid back but unfortunately some people think they arent being pushed enough whilst other think they are being pushed too far. However, results are normally in the 80's or 90's due to the quality of the module.

Loved the lecturer, Genia Schbäumsfeld, makes the effort not to just read off of the slides and gives a lot of insightful ways of interpreting the text and says points in intellectual ways which is good for the essays. The main text studied was Descartes Meditations which was great but would've preferred more texts covering the epistemological branch of philosophy but really enjoyed the meditations regardless. Form of Assessment of 3 1000 word essays was perfect and loved how there was no exam based assessment.

The actual content on this course might have been quite interesting, but it was run by 3 lecturers and suffered from lack of overall cohesion. Instead there was a bizarre mash up of Classic Hollywood Film Studies, Shakespeare and simple Theatre Studies, with each topic pitched at a different level of understanding. Whilst some lectures were engaging, it was confusing as to what we were meant to learn and focus on outside of class, and therefore produce for assignments.

This module offers an interesting look at many modern molecular methods and techniques used for many processes. Many examples and context but online resources were very badly organised and available. The last exam was very underprepaired for and lack of revision aid recieved.

Really diverse module which covers many aspects of both human and physical geography and the consecutiveness of such. Because of the large number of lectures it tailored to every students tastes and also gave an insight into lecturers interest which is useful for future module choice.

Brilliant module!

It essentially is a week in Brittany, France, using a variety of geophysical equipment to measure geological formations and produce a lot of data to later process and interpret in a report. (Gravity, Seismics, Magnetics, Ground Penetrating Radar, Resistivity...)

It's very hard work - but so fun and one of the best fieldtrips I have ever been on!

The course is extremely varied so far, and allows vast improvement in confidence and fluency within the two languages. The content modules are very interesting and informative, and the assignments are challenging but not in anyway too difficult. I am looking forward to starting linguistics modules next semester.

I am a second year mechanical engineer student. I find my course quite hard, but on the other hand I enjoy it a lot so it's worth it. The degree is well structured and they have really tried to combine the knowelede you get from the different modules, so you can smoothly adjust to the needs of the course. Our teachers are exceptional with few exceptions, which is mainly due to their lack of the english language. In general though, they are very helpful and would be glad to meet them at their office anytime during the day to explain stuff. Lastly, the way we get assessed is a bit of a mix up between courseworks and exams, but with greater weight on the exams. I believe however they have some space for improvement, mainly choosing better deadlines for the different modules since many times two or three courseworks coincide on the same week.
