The course had one exam and some short pieces of coursework based on worked examples. There needed to be some more sessions to help with working out calculations in the exam because a lot of people found it difficult to identify how to do it correctly just from lecture slides. It would have been useful to have sessions where you could work through some examples with the lecturer or students.Otherwise, it was an insightful module and the lecturer was very good.

This module threw you in at the deep end. Many of the students taking this module had never studied politics before and had no political knowledge. Although there was breif overviews, many students were still left confused as the module content didn't start from the very beginning.

This module was also very boring as there was nothing done to try and make it interesting or even interactive.

There were far too many teachers for this module and they would change every week. This was confusing as you didn't know who your main tutor was and who was taking you each week and therefore you didn't know who to email, not that they replied when you did.

One of the many lectures taking this module never expanded on PowerPoint slides. They literally just made a very brief PowerPoint and read from it. There was no extra information from this lecturer to help you understand it or any more detail, meaning you couldn't even really take notes. This didn't help with the initial confusion of the whole module or when doing assignments or exams. This lecturer also seemed so disinterested, bored and as if they didn't want to be there.

The seminars for this class were also ridiculous. There was a two hour wait between the lecture and the seminar and hardly anyone stayed for this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was taught by a literary agent and a publisher, who shared their extensive knowledge of the industry, as well as inviting relevant guest speakers. I gained in depth knowledge of copyright, contracts, publishing law and the auction process.

This has been my favourite module out of everything that I've done at university! I went in having no knowledge of technical theatre, and finished the module being able to program and rig lights, set up and operate sound, create stage and lighting plans, design set and costume, and stage manage a show! This one module gives you the opportunity to learn a range of skills in technical theatre, and the end assessments are a performance and a portfolio of all your collated work. This module unlocked a passion for technical theatre in the space of 12 weeks, and when o leave university I hope to work for some time in technical theatre. The lecturers for this module are always on hand for advice, or calling round to rehearsals. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask. They will even help you with booking studio slots, right down to refreshing you on how to set up the sound stack. However, I am not the only one who enjoyed this module, several of my classmates have also said they would like to work as a stage manager in the future. It may be a stressful experience but it's one you'll want to repeat!

Really good module, learning a lot about my own learning and teaching styles. Being able to mentor someone is really helped with my confidence in my own work and have seen that my grades are improving. The teachers are great as they use examples to help us understand the content better.

The teaching for this module is excellent. The lecturer is also the director at the British Institute of Human Rights and the university has a collegium with the institute which offers students the opportunity for a paid internship in the summer.

The structure of the course is we'll organise and flows nicely throughout the course of the year touching upon subjects such as non-discrimination (gender, LGBT), prohibition of torture and right to housing.

The module involves one two hour class a week and is a lively seminar with very topical debates.

Lots of information provided in plenty of time to make use of it for both coursework and exam preparation. Lecturers are passionate about their module and are very responsive to queries from students, either after class or via email in between. The coursework its self can be challenging, but if started early and worked at consistently, it will not be an issue to complete

This is not a module I expected to enjoy, as it involved analysing recordings of myself communicating with other group members. However, after spending 6 months in a foreign country for an industrial placement year, I now realise the true benefit of this module. It allowed me to see communication as more than words, and has led me to realise the importance of both verbal and non- verbal communication.

This module gave me a brand new insight into the psychology of the consumer, an aspect of Leisure and Events I'd never even considered. It was thoroughly enjoyable and challenging at the same time. The marking and feedback of work was very fair and well explained to allow for improvement. They used a range of lecturers to teach this module which is something I personally didn't like, but as it appealed to other students I wouldn't criticise it for this.

As previously mentioned, the workshops are very useful because they provide basic understanding of various topics. However, some of them, such as the statistics workshop, require previous knowledge and is not suitable for people who have no understanding of statistics. This particular workshop could have benefited from practical exercises such as solving problems instead of being only lecture based. Other workshops however are very well structured with lectures, tours of facilities and practical explanations. They are given by experts in the specific field and the teaching quality is excellent. The format of assessment is 800 words essays which is not always suitable such as in the case of statistics where problem solving based coursework would have been more useful. Nevertheless, for the rest of the topics it seems appropriate and enough time is allowed to complete the coursework. Fast assessment and feedback are not always provided and it takes sometimes more than a month.
