This module was interesting to learn as there are so many different aspects to it. The tutor provided us with a lot of reading material which is advisable to read as much as you can, and I enjoyed it all. Some of the time it seemed like the tutor was just reading from the PowerPoint slides, but he did add his own notes, and guest speakers made it more lifelike. The assessments were an essay on a real company, to improve their diversity strategy, and a group presentation on the same thing. I do not enjoy presentations but my group seems good so far. The content of the seminars are pretty much the same each week; group work and discussions. I have enjoyed this module as it is different than most of the others I chose, and the tutor makes it interesting, so it is worthwhile!

Scenario 1 presents a patient called Zoltan who displays the symptoms of extreme kidney failure. The scenario begins with an introductory briefing lecture which explains Zoltan's symptoms, followed by a series of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology lectures which explore the scientific aspects of the disease in depth. It is completed with a debriefing lecture where the treatment and management of the condition are explained. Questions about the scenario are included in the Mid sessional and final exam papers. The scenario deals with many aspects of the kidney, which is a complex kidney, and so the information is quite difficult to digest. However, lectures, dissection sessions and tutorials help to aid understanding. A way to improve the scenario would be to refer back to Zoltan more times throughout the scenario and relate the physiology we are learning to his his specific case.

The kidney, pretty difficult but some good anatomy lectures and the physiology was well taught. Unfortunately the dissection wasn't great as we couldn't use the cadavers but that isn't the unis fault.

Very interesting module, great follow up dissections. Lecture Capture system records lectures for us to re-watch at home; excellent revision resource, especially for the scenarios.

Library allows you study during the day before or after lectures.

This scenario focuses primarily on the Kidney and the Urinary System. It considers how the kidney filters urine, how it concentrates urine, the anatomy of the urinary system, how solutes are transported in the kidney, renal microstructure, acid-base regulation and diuretics.

Very insightful and well taught.

This course is mandatory for the MSc in Security Studies and has largely been a complete and utter waste of time. The lecturers are so unengaging and the content is dry and irrelevant. Six weeks into the module and I haven't learned a single thing that will be useful for this programme, much less after the programme is over. It's meant to help you with your dissertation but it doesn't.

This module is not very relevant in a master program because it talks and studies very basic concepts already studied in undergraduate level. But it is very useful for students without a management, economic background.

The module itself took form in work shopped groups of about 15. Every week, we'd produce work and review it and also hold an impassioned debate regarding a theoretical subject we'd studied throughout the week. Not only did this format provide new discourse every week but the workshopping of our own writing meant there was never a dull moment. The theoretical studies we looked at creating voice as well as fictional work that played with voice. The diversity of these pieces gave us a solid foundation of knowledge surrounding the Voice and how we could implement these skills into our work. Our tutor took the time to feedback on each segment of writing we took to share and also pushed us to be constructively critical of each other's writing. This encouraged us to improve the extracts we were taking in as well determining which elements we wanted to include in the our final portfolio. The final portfolio was an 8,000 word essay which could be creative or critical . This format allowed the student to express complex ideas throughout the creative element and be able to back these up in the critical commentary, overall , a very enjoyable module.

Course was great. Really interesting and well structured. It was set at the beginning of the course what was expected. I enjoyed the assessment - two exams as we had the time to purely focus on doing well on these over the Christmas break. Some introduction lectures on how to use SPSS would have been beneficial.

This is the most important module of the course and like I mentioned earlier, forms the bane of the degree. It allows students to work in two different labs full-time under mentors of their choice and write up a 15,000 word thesis for each project under their guidance as well. The idea is to get a good feel for what academia is like, how research labs work, how techniques/experiments actually work and so forth. Its like a mini PhD program that can eventually lead to a full PhD program, if that is the student's goal.

The module covers many different transitions that a person may go through in their life and students are to pick one in more detail to look at in the assignment. A key theme throughout the module is structure and agency.
