I enjoy parts of this course not all of it due to some of it being boring. The students I am in classes with are amazing and make you feel like you're part of their family :). Would not ask for a better group to be in classes with every day :). The classes can become a bit slow so I tend to zone out.

Third and final year of degree has been most useful, gained most hands on laboratory experience whilst completing final year project. First and second years were mainly recap. Social life at university was ok. Staff were generally helpful.

The work experience module is taught by a visiting lecture and outside professional. As a part of the course you are required to obtain 10 days’ work experience of your choice. During the term you are taught lessons on how to look for jobs, correct CV and cover letter formatting as well as interview skills. You are required to create a portfolio which covers all of the above as well as detailing what you have learnt and achieved from your work experience. You are also required to prepare for a mock job interview. The mock job interview is done in order to help give you and understanding of what it is like in the real world. The interview process was extremely helpful. Overall it is a good course and is well taught. I found it extremely helpful and as a result feel more comfortable applying for jobs.

This module was most definitely a different and unique take to most Applied British Politics (BP) modules.

Firstly, the lectures and seminars took place in one room - this is an incentive for students to go in my opinion. I usually didn't take to lectures unless they has the promise of being interesting. In this case, we had visitors, all from different political parties as well as those who are from organisations that affect British Politics. They were always appealing to me since it was a genuine discussion of that specific persons role and what they have witnessed in politics.

The seminar would occur before the visit/lecture. These were focused on developing our work for assessments. The first assesment for this to work on a domestic british policy issue. We could either develop or appeal to reform a policy issue. We would bring our individual research for approval and show where we were going with research.

On somedays, we didn't go to the classroom at all. Instead, we went to visits to places that were inclusive of politics. These were visits to Parliament, a radical british politics bookshop and two visits we had to organise ourselves.

The final assesment focused on the lectures from visitors and various speakers and the excursions we went to. It was a opinionated review and was enjoyable to discuss aspects of what we learnt in a very reflective way. It was refreshing not having to incorporate the typical theory we did throughout our entire degree.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this module. It was everything that stood out from the typical line of university classes. Arguably, one of the best modules I have done in my entire three years.

The lecturer was very good at conveying his knowledge of the subjects. Making it engaging and understandable. His methods were good as they varied and included participation and a group presentation. This is something I would not have normally enjoyed but I feel like it really helped me to engage and learn skills such as speaking, being critical and structuring my essay better.

Initially I thought cellular pathology was all about pink and purple images. It wasn't until my amazingly helpful lecturer began to explain the disease processes behind these images that k began to understand. It isn't the easiest module but it provides you with just enough challenge to get you interested. Pathology and histology atlases were the most useful for learning them arterial and of course interacting in the lectures and practicals. I think cellular pathology just became my favourite module!

THIS module is a great way to prepare students for the world of research and their own individual projects that contribute to their graduation. the course module was stimulating and very much geared to being equiped to approach both qualitative and quantitative research. However, i do believe that the course module can be improved by have a longitudinal courase that practically teaches students the use of statistical software such as R, STATA and SPSS, which are considered to also increase the employability of the student easpecialy, if they want to be involved in future research, either as academics or otherwise. this appraoch will offer a cumulative benefit to all the other course modules that require the student to analyse and critique research and let alone also bieng able to have the versatility of choosing the appropriate software to analyse their own data, and also to undrstand the different resarch papers that are presented by other academics.

This is a 30 credit module indicating that it is imperative in acheiving a high grade in. I have learnt immensely through this module since it has allowed me to link my knowledge of economics to the real world which I would never have learnt. The teaching has been excellent as the the lecturer has provided us with a lot of information and guidance on how to perform well and obtain high marks without spoon feeding us. It has also been an enjoyable module since the lecturer is always in a good mood and finding jokes to link back to the content of the module

I felt that this module offered a very structured and coherent look into competition law. I thoroughly enjoyed the lectures and tutorials and always felt like I could ask for help if needs be. The content was interesting and challenging which encouraged independent learning. This helped with the understanding of the topic and only made it more enjoyable.
