Great course for those who would like to learn a bit about every creative degree. It covers design, photography, animation, illustration, film production, sound design and more. The lectures are fun and interesting and the tutors are very helpful.

It was useful and good choice to have it on second year last year instead of the third year, but I feel the content could've been less or at least compressed a bit. It is good to make sure people learn and understand things related to doing an independent study, but especially second semester I felt like I could've used my time better, such as on another module that would've interested me more. It did give me good information and did prepare me for submitting real research proposal but still. Less is more.

Very interesting Illustration module that teaches some basic print techniques. Gives you the opportunity to do things you would rarely otherwise get to do.

This was an extremely interesting module, it involved a weeks stay in the Alps of Switzerland and France. This field trip was in the last year of university and enabled us to see the processes and landforms that had been studied throughout our previous 2 years. This included looking at fluvial, glacial and peri glacial landforms out in the field so that you can actually identify these landforms in the filed rather than just through pictures in a class room. The assignment was really different but in a goold way because it wasn't an exam or an essay, we had to create a field guide for work professionals who may later go out in the filed to highlight the landforms and processes at work in the field so they could easily go out in the field and identify these features. Criticism of the trip could have travelled somewhere more exotic such as the Andes or Himalayas but apart from that it was an exceptional module.

Content is delivered by great enthusiastic staff who keep lectures interesting.

I like the variation of assessment methods from essays to presentations.

I personally find the mix of placement half the week and lectures in university the other half very difficult with so much to remember each week and often feel very overwhelmed. However I do understand the theory behind uni along side placement! Many friends on the course believe it is benefitting them.

I do love all the subjects, content and passionate lecturers, but I feel a bit screwed over since there's been so many changes to the course since me and my peers started and it's like we're Guinea pigs to test out what works and what doesn't. There's also been lot of timetable clashes preventing people, me included, from choosing all their favourite modules. Luckily, this is apparently being addressed for next year. They also have a plant related mandatory module for every year just for the sole reason that we get one or two plant biology people yearly, which many feel is unfair due to most people not being interested in it, taking a chance of maybe doing another interesting module instead.The staff is really supportive, passionate and knowledgeable. Some of the modules have been harder and more confusing than should, often due to assessment guidelines being vague or non-existent. Some assessments have been downright useless/very odd way of deciding grade, such as using peerwise. I've been happy with most of the modules, it is just too bad I've been unable to do a lot of modules I've been interested in.The university gets props for being small but mostly functional, houses lots of students even if it doesn't feel that big. Campuses are good, lots of study spaces. Since we already pay big tuition fees, paying for printing should be abolished. They also upped the prices this year too, so...They have fairly good support system. I've gotten help and acceptance with mitigating circumstances and good help with mental health problems, which set me on the right path to recovery.

I'm sure courses which university puts lots of effort in like sports and business are good and they do get lot of praise,but I wouldn't recommend going to this uni for biology. It's better than most, but could do many things better.

The course was well structured with a mixture of both theory based sessions and practical based sessions. The assignments and exams for each individual module were clearly set out from the start, allowing each individual to know exactly what was expected. There were also plenty of field trips which allowed you to see what was discussed and identified in the theory based sessions out in the flesh. This was particularly useful for modules that involved glacial or fluvial processes. The lectures were insightful and interesting, the lecturers were always willing to help. One criticism of the course is that the majority of lectures were 4 hours long which was quite a long time to concentrate for. It would have been better if there were more lectures throughout the week but to be a maximum of 2 hours long.

I found this university degree extremely well structured, there was a clear mix of practical session as well as theory/classroom based sessions. In particular the filed trips were extremely valuable, allowing us to see the processes discussed in the class room out in the field; this was particularly useful for glacial features and processes. However, the most valuable part of the course were the sessions and modules which showed us how we can use the skills gathered through the degree in the world of work. As well as showing us what job opportunites were open and providing us with useful contacts enabling us to network in our chosen fields.

Fantastic course which offers a wide variety of theoretical content and practical application. Loads of opportunities within different modules to complete school-based placements to gain valuable experience.

The university itself is full of friendly, helpful people. Whilst the student union is slightly pricey, there is usually a great atmosphere found around the campus. Worcester is a small campus surrounded by the beauty of nature only a short walk away. The university is a great place to be with new friends, with lots of facilities to help students with their studies.
