Overall the degree is somewhat interesting, however it seems to lack the practical element to link the knowledge to the theoretical side that you learn. I expected far more design involvement in the course as well, but there was a mere 2 modules out of the 3 years.

The course begins very detailed on physiology and pharmacology, you will then do an essay to do with communication which is very sudden and you only have a month to write it. this course is very full on and I suggest you do your essays at least a week in advance so you can re-read and get your tutor to look at it too. You MUST revise for your exam from christmas! even though mine was in april, you need all the knowledge from 2x 120page booklets ingrained into your mind. Your maths needs to be amazing. You must be prepared on placement to wipe bums, feed people, be attacked (i was), engage in conversations that may be nonsense, write down every medication detail, give injections, shout, run, and be happy. It is very challenging and although we don't have many essays to do, placement takes your energy, free time...and then there's working on the side....if you can't afford your room just on bursary etc then you need a job, no matter how much money you have coming in YOU NEED A JOB. its the only way you'll learn to be independent and manage time as well as money. I worked fri, sat and sun 6-10 hour shifts followed by placement the next day being up at 5 to get a bus at half past.....you need money to get food and pay bills if your bursary doesn't cover that already.Take it from someone who fucked up in freshers week.....don't spend all your money, don't go out more than 3 times a month and get a job.....I had to live off fried egg sandwiches for 2 months because all my money from my work and bursary was going into rent.....but more shifts, a second bank shift job on the side and an overdraft set me straight. GET AN OVERDRAFT, even if its for bread and milk.....get one!! I can't stress how important food is until you've tried every sarnie in tesco on placement and all you can afford is Lidl soup.Look after yourself.

Overall the degree provides students with the appropriate skills required to work as a Band 5 radiographer. Assessments are fair and faculty ensure that every student is equipped to complete them. In the first year, academics are focused particularly on anatomy, physics behind the equipment, standard x-ray positions and patient care. As students advance they explore more complicated areas such as research, professional issues, contrast, pharmaceuticals, modalities and even an introduction to image interpretation. Staff are friendly, engaging and always happy to answer student's queries in person or via email. I have greatly enjoyed by experience at this university and with the curriculum

The course overall is interesting, there is a lot of emphasis on self-learning which some of the lecturers can initially uninform the coursemates about.. however the modules are interesting with a diverse range of topics.

Computer Science at the University of the West of England (UWE) is great!The content covered in year 1 is suitable for new students to Computer Science and programming, whilst still being a challenge and learning new content (such as artificial intelligence).

This particular module has a great team of lecturers and workshop tutors. The lectures have been fully engaging and the supplementary workshops helped to further the knowledge gained in the lecture. The team have made a very complex module a lot simpler through great teaching styles. The mix of assessments on the module offers something for everyone. It is a core module for any law student so it is very lucky that it was as good as it has been!

the content of the course in the first year is of a similar level to that studied at A-level however there is more of a focus on improving your laboratory skills and instilling good habits within the lab. The second and third years are structured so that you get to choose the modules that you pick and whether to specialise in a certain field I.e. Molecular, Wildlife or Human. I have chosen to go down the molecular path which involves a lot of time spent in the lab which I enjoy greatly especially as I have been taught the skills in first year to undertake a vast array of experimental techniques within the lab. In terms of assessments, for most of the modules you are required to complete 2 pieces of coursework per year per module, one due just before Christmas and one due just before Easter. The coursework usually involves filling in a portfolio and handing it in or writing an essay. This year I have 4, 3 hour exams in the summer and had no January exams but this is not the same for all modules on the course, a lot of modules have January exams and summer exams weighted evenly. The course is enjoyable and given the opportunity to decide to do it again I definitely would.

It is a good course with decent structure and content. You learn a lot both through the lecturers and through further reading set. The teaching is of a good standard and the lecturers are always on hand to answer any questions. They are very knowledgable about the subject.Class content is always fun and engaging and ties in to the assignments set and also real world practices. It is a developing programme and year by year it seems to be greatly improving. There are very good opportunities for activities abroad also, through this programme.

The subject is amazing, and UWE has a range of approaches to teaching and cover all aspect of the wide subject well. Theoretical psychology and cognitiveneuro psychology are world's apart but the course works to give an extensive background in all aspects and the majority of lecturers are engaging and really keen to help. My only real issue has been with my dissertation supervisor, I was assigned a completely inappropriate supervisor to start with, whos areas of study were nothing to do with my intended project, I had to re work my whole plan, find myself a new supervisor and the whole thing caused a massive delay in my research getting underway. That being said, the head of psychology had really helped with some issues with equipment access to participants when the lab staff were making things difficult.
