My course is law and business based however my interests lie more in the law aspect. Law of obligations is one of the first law modules that I have really enjoyed and felt like yea I'm actually studying law! It was a hard course but fun at the same time. The lecture really challenged us which is what I'm looking for at university level! There was a lot of problem solving and advise the client type if exercises which makes you feel like a real lawyer (at least in the making.) It was a great module.

The module staff are fantastic. They are what makes the module so fun. Lorraine is like a mother, and ensures all students are understanding the information. It is not too hard, and is just an introduction to wider HRM. The assessments are fair, and do not require too much of the students. It is a very enjoyable module.

I am a 35 year old female in my 3rd and last year of my course. The course has been a tough journey but the end is near. The contents of the course has been most informative with exceptional support and knowledge from the lecturers. We use moodle which is a great online tool for course work and submitting essays.

Personally I enjoy and learn better with the practical skills lab classes rather than a lecture as I think I am more of a kinesthetic learner. Timetable structure I domes feel could be better as you are in some days for half a day then brought in another day for 2 hours only. Also like just now we are on a 7 week placement and have 2 essays due in plus I try and work shifts at my work. I find this tough and feel it would be more beneficial and less stressful not am having 2 essays due in whilst on placement.

Overall I am happy and privaliged to study at UWS Paisley Campus, but look forward to reaching the finishing line!

There have been ups and downs with my course all because my class is the first class to ever do my particular course at my university. There have been courses that have been unnecessary and should never have been offered to university students. However, the administration and the lecturers are really good at taking our feedbacks on all things and working on making the course better for both my class (in third year) and the classes behind us. They have added courses that are fun and interesting. And since we are law and business students we get to have classes with people from other disciplines which is really good because it broadebs your social horizon. The university is really good and has a lot to offer!If you choose the university of the west of Scotland you will not regret it!

The UWS Hamilton campus is diar and you are often squashed into rooms that are far too small, which doesn't help learning at all. The lecturers vary in quality- some are fantastic and really engage with students, others struggle to speak English and are really quite hard to understand. However, the great lecturers do make up for it. The structure of the modules is good but laid back- only 12 hours in uni per week.

Some of the modules we do are pointless and not related to Biomedical science. It says we get placement but it's only 7 or 6 students that did out of 75 students which is not good. The course is not stimulating and there is hardly any pracial work that gIves the feel of working in a real lab.

The best part about the module was guest lecturers. Lecturer read through the slides and 6 months later still haven't gotten any feedback.

You get to select a project to work on and for the year carry out experiments and do all the background research. Made more interesting as you get to pick what you want from a list or you can make a topic up entirely as long as it is approved by the lecturers.
