The course was wonderful and well structured. As the class sizes are really small, you get to know everyone really well and there is always someone to talk to if you are struggling. This is also true of the lecturers, who make a big effort to give you all the support you need, including having an open door policy so you can stop by for help whenever needed. Although not every class was something I enjoyed, this could not be helped as all modules are compulsory until 3rd year. This really helped with giving a broad knowledge and hence allowing me to choose the right project for me in the masters year. The university itself is gorgeous and the beautiful setting always gives a good atmosphere to everyone studying here.

I love studying at Sussex Uni, the campus is beautiful and there's always something to do.The course itself is amazing as the masters is integrated into the course and so after four years of studying you really feel that you know everyone. The lecturers are always helpful and have an open door policy so it's easy to get help when you need it and the small class sizes mean that you always feel like the tutors know you personally. Although some modules were not to my taste and there isn't any opportunity for having choice until 3rd year, this gave a really broad knowledge which was helpful when it came to choosing a final year project.

The content is current and backed up by a wide variety of theory, quite often written by our professors themselves.The course not only delvers a broad spectrum of the theoretical nuances of social and cultural anthropology but also includes a practical and exploratory aspect. In year two of the course we are given a group fieldwork task which we orient ourselves - although of course we are given guidance and skills workshops to navigate this task. The department encourages extra fieldwork as offers plenty of opportunities for study abroad, oversees research grants and advice from leaders in the field. We are well equipped for our futures in Anthropology by a broad range of topics covered by the course and are given free range to research what we are most interested in for our third year thesis.

This has by far been my favourite module. The content and teaching itself made learning both engaging and thought provoking. The structure of the seminars allowed me to engage and participate in ways I have not before.

The first two thirds of the module was fantastic. Our lecturer was superb and went above and beyond to provide us with excellent resources and information surrounding the subject. The module was difficult in content, but made very accessible through the teaching. Unfortunately, the final third of the module was taken by a different lecturer. While the content was not bad perse, there was a significant drop in quality of teaching and resources available. In addition, the latter content felt detached and to a large extent unrelated to what we had previously been studying.

This was probably the best taught module in the whole course, the lecturer goes through all the content very well on a computer in the lecture. Which is then easily followed when it it watched back.

It is one of the most enjoyable modules, since you are learning important physics concepts which are very fascinating.

The lecture notes are brilliant too, I think I could learn this course just from the lecture notes. I never even used the course textbook since I did not need to.

The organisation of it was done very well, with many tutors in the workshop which were ready to answer your question along with the lecture.

I very much enjoyed this course and I just wish other modules could be like this, I would happily take this course again if I got the chance.

I have really enjoyed this module, it is completely up to date, to the point of changing the syllabus when new legislation came in regarding joint enterprise. The tutors for this subject have been excellent, with the main course convenor giving engaging and varied lectures, with resonating examples to make difficult areas seem more approachable.

Good course content and clear instructions on what is needed to pass or exceed. Teaching standard was high and lectures made the subject interesting. Feedback on work was given promptly and was helpful. Resources were good. Only criticism being that it focused too much on details rather than the general concept e.g. specific amino acid residues (it can just be looked up in a database and would never require you the need to know that and takes up unnecesary brain capaccity for students like me)

This course overall was the best. Firstly, the teacher was amazing and ensured that the class knew and understood everything that she taught. Secondly, because Eu law is my favorite subject I found the class enjoyable. This subject however was a bit challenging at first as it took my a while to understand it. The assessment is regular an essay and an exam, i feel as though this is a straightforward way to test individuals.

This module is probably one of the best modules in my opinion. Each week we have different guest lecturers who work for the NHS, come teach. These guests are usually clinical psychologists but we have also had health psychologists, psychiatrists and neuropsychologists come teach. Evidently, having these lecturers come in with the experience they have is amazing. The module teaches a variety of topics in relation to lifespan e.g, childhood disorders, learning difficulties, okder adults and chronic pain etc.
