Most modules are very interesting and help further my knowledge about Psychology, there was one this year though that I felt was a waste of my time and effort and had an assessment that didn't help my knowledge progress further at all, but they gave us this on top of every other assessment that were frankly more important at the time. Most assessments are thankfully spaced out well and there is enough information in the lectures and from recommended reading to get us good grades.

This module was one of four options for third year students. Assessment of this module was 100% exam (2.5 hours) split into two parts. Part A focused on implications of research methods such as inductive and deductive reasoning where you were to answer an essay questions. Where as part B was open book and commuter based where student had to perform, analysis and write results for statistical test covered in the lecture material. There were 12 weeks of lectures which covered more advance statistical tests than the previouse material covered in years one and two of research methods. Advance tests such as MANOVAs and exploratory factor analysis were learnt. 11 of the 12 lectures were in a computer room where the first half of the lecture covered theory and the second part was practical using large data sets and completeing ststistical analyses while the lecturer came round to each person to help understanding. The lectures concluded with the results you should have gotten when performing the test and why/how to report it. The 12th lecture was on implications of research methods (focused on part A of the assessment). Overall the module was enjoyable and the 'open book' format for part B of the assessment was extremely helpful and aided in relieveing pressure.

This module is changed every year to deal with current controversial issues as well as older ones. For example, last year, we discussed the Charlie Hebdo attacks and they're portrayals in the media as well as suffragettes and how they're represented in dramatic stagings. We also looked at the historical and current censorship of drama in theatres, TV and film. This module was incredibly engaging, we used the entire 3 hour lecture every week and often overran because we wanted to talk more about the issues. We all left the class talking more about the lecture and were constantly messaging each other with new relevant material.

This module takes a look at how the English Language has developed and progressed from as early as the 5th Century CE. It is a module that requires a lot of reading to fully understand its complexity, however once you grasp the concepts, it is something you are very proud of knowing! One thing that is great about this module is that the lecturers are very passionate about the topic and therefore deliver lectures and seminars with lots of enthusiasm which makes for great learning!

This module is particularly interesting. The variety of cases, the judgements and the details on the crimes. The lecturer really engages with the students, making criminal law as interesting as possible and keeping all the students hooked.

The work does seem a little much for each week, but that's to be expected with a law degree

While covering a wide range of psychological disorder and their symptoms, diagnostic criteria and subject areas such as problems with diagnosing a psychological disorder, the modual is relatively interesting with a decent lecturer who is mildly enthusiastic and extremely helpful with any problems you might have. I enjoyed this module above all others that I have undertaken in my first year. The assessment is 100% exam based. However the exam was just a revival of all my A-level exams, not exceedingly difficult with some revision. Learning facts and stats will help you significantly in this module but don't worry too much about names and dates, it isn't history.

The content of the module is intriguing looking at the social aspects and drives behind fashion history. However, I do not enjoy the module due to the immense amount of readings which seem unrelated. I am aware of the importance of reading especially for a module which entails deep Socialogical theories however these have not been well explained in relation to the assessment of this module.
