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!

My degree was extremely comprehensive the lecturers were very professional and strove to help whenever they could as long as you asked for the help. I never felt that my course was lacking thanks to the wonderful lecturers at the university.

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.

I believe there are some aspects of the content that may not exactly apply to marketing, especially in the third year. For example, the subject MOIC is meant to be specific for MET students however I don't see the specification applied to the content that was taught to us.Teachers also need to make sure they provide students with their opinion and answers to a question if they TRULY believe students have no idea what to do. I agree we are at university and should be able to know what to write for a question, however we are also here to learn and the teacher need to guide us when he/she sees that ALL of us in a class are lost.

One of the aspects I like is that some subjects involve group work, which is an essential skill one needs to develop for the business world.The technology used to teach us and the guest lectures are helpful too. Another thing I appreciate is that teachers want students to start working on the assingments as soon as the classes start/ or the term starts; this may seem too soon but trust me what they say is right!

Apart from all that, all I can say is that enjoy your time at university here because after this the journey gets harder! Take your time and PLEASE do not leave projects for the last moment as that really can become a nigtmare!

P.S. Also please put all your efforts into the assingments as once the marks are out there is no reevaluation of the mark and you might regret not working on it harder.

up until recently I have found the teaching standard high however recently I've had 2 lecturers whom have read straight from their notes making the lecture boring, unenthusiastic and hard to understand (it makes it feel as if they don't even know what they are talking about - I also had a similar experience at Bristol uni). however I feel they do provide the right content and direction to finding the correct content.

The degree covers a wide range of content related to psychology which allowed me to gradually develop my interests. This was helped by the opportunity to choose my third year modules which fortunately match my career interests. It's worth noting that in the first year, content is widely accessible so that those who have not previously studied psychology can learn all the basic theories and concepts ready to be assessed in years 2 and 3.It included a wide range of assessment from 1000 word essays to 20 minute presentations to 2 hour exams. I have found that the lecturers really try to take on board student ideas and this resulted in a relatively good organisation of these assessments so that no 1 assessment was too close to the next. Specifically in third year module leaders try to have all coursework in the first semester so that the dissertation and exams can be of focus.Teaching is generally good but with a lot of 'reading' courses you have to do exactly that... Make time for reading! This is if you want to do really well of course.In general, I really enjoyed the degree and am aiming for a psychology based career. There have been aspects of it that I haven't liked such as some compulsory modules or particular lecturers - but you can't have everything!

The course is well organised, some of the lecturers are very professional, sharing their views and experiences of teaching which shows us how we can be in the future. The course could be better by making sure the lectures on the timetable actually have a lecturer show up instead of wasting the students time when they could be doing work at home.

The Law course at UWE includes a variety of optional modules which was my main attraction to the university. From criminal to commercial, from family to international trade. You wont be stuck for choice here. my particular choices were Forensice Evidence, Sexual Offences, Medical Law and Intellectual Property. I have thoroughly enjoyed all. However it must be said that I found Intellectual Property very difficult but this is a lot more commercial based compared to my other choices which could be a reason why.

I have found that the forms of assessment in each module are not as evenly weighted as I would've liked as they tend to focus on exams either written or all being the most weighted towards your final mark in each course. However there are some modules which are entirely coursework too. There are plenty of extra services within and around the university to help you with situations from studying to careers to well-being. Having been a student that uses these services I have felt very welcomed by all. .
