Course review , 10/03/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

A wide variety of interesting modules, however there isn't any choice until 4th year. The structure and order of modules is changing every year as the course is only 4 years old, which is good but feels at times like you're a bit of a trial run! Most lecturers are really helpful and happy to answer any questions, however email replies can be a bit slow. Assessment types are varied, including exams, online exams, essays, reviews, reports and portfolios. This feels a lot better and more accurate than exams at the end of every semester. The course is really enjoyable and unique.
