All modules are very interesting and relate well to the course. Lectures are made fun whether that be due to quizzes, practicals or just generally being taught by an enthusiastic lecturer. Large variety in the ways you're assessed, for example through written assessments and portfolios, oral group presentations, multiple choice exams and written exams. All lecturers on the course are friendly, helpful and approachable.
The detail given in the teaching of the theoretical content is extensive and there are a number of trips you can participate in at a cost or for free depending on if they are compulsory or not.
Practical hands on experience is limited on the course so is better suited to people that learn well by being spoken at. The assessments are good and generally well spaced out so you don't get snowed under by deadlines easily.
There are a number of computer facilities and a well stocked library also. Teachers can be a mixed bag of passionate and indifferent depending on the lecture but lectures are still enjoyable for the most part.
The modules throughout the 3 years have been well thought about and cover many different aspects of the course. This includes topics that cover mathematical, economical, engineering, architectural, general building knowledge and technology, building and property history, laws and legislations, measuring and take off, correct and appropriate letter writing and structuring in line with quantity surveying practice.
There were other students studying architecture, real estate and construction management which enabled me to learn different aspects of the construction and property industry as well as work with different future professionals.
There have been a mix of courseworks ranging from 1000 to 4000 words as well as examinations and group presentations. All of this ensured that I was able to present and produce work in different ways which will aid me in the future and at my workplace.
On top of the above, the lecturers that I had throughout my course have all been experienced, intelligent people who help in whatever aspect it is you have queries on or are struggling with as well as just a general guide and motivator. They have been good when it comes to uploading the lectures and other additional information and announcements to the VLE.
During first year each module was explained and you were told well in advance how you will be assessed - whether a moot, exam or coursework. This is really useful when choosing modules in your second and third year also as how you are assessed can determine how well you do as some people prefer/are better at coursework and vice versa. The lecturers are great - most of them really enthusiastic. They all have amazing knowledge of what they are teaching as they have had many many years of experience and this is definitely reflected in how they explain and teach the subject. The university itself are amazing with extra help - study skills are amazing! Praise praise praise!
This course at Anglia Ruskin is amazing. It is very well balanced between practical and theory ( mostly balanced towards practical). All of the lecturers are enthusiastic and here to help. They make the lectures interesting and worth while. So far these semesters have been amazing. The end of second semester this university offers a show which is amazing because this university has a full size stage! It has large scale rooms for rehearsals with lights and a sound system as well as a music department to rehearse in. The course keeps you captivated as you always have something to do. You also Have a lot of holiday time which helps to break up the work. Overall this course is amazing and I woild highly recommend it!
Anglia Ruskin university has a wonderful environment full of caring teachers and genuine students. There's a wide variety of spots going on within the university as well as something extra curricular going on. The university always looks for the best interests of its students an teachers. The course I do includes lots of practical and theory based Elements with each one evenly proportioned. We have classes which captivate students and keep us focused but still interested. The lectures help to give us the information we need to learn whilst helping us stay awake and able to retain information. The course is very interesting and was a good choice.
I have found the course to be really interesting and fun to learn about. The lecturers are all extremely passionate and enthusiastic about their subject and often provide us with interactive lessons, we do quizzes in the lecture online and sometimes have special guests which has also included a guide dog puppy. The assessment is mainly coursework based, it is quite full on with the coursework, but there has been at least a week between when each assessment is due so I have had time to catch up on work if falling behind. The part I have found the hardest is learning the Latin names for some animals, as well as some scientific concepts, but overall I haven't found it too complex. Every other week we meet in tutor groups (mine has 6 people in it) and they provide really constructive advice on how to improve assessments and give us examples on how to structure essays etc which I have found very helpful. Overall I am loving the course and would highly reccomend it.
The theory content of the course is very well in depth and the lecturers are obviously passionate about their field however if you take the degree on thinking you will have lots of practical hands on experience you won't. There are a few opportunities and trips but not enough practical stuff really.
Taxation is one of the modules that is part of my degree. It's a very large, complicated but interesting module, it requires full attention and concentration but it has a lot of information to be understood and take in . Lucky enough I have a good lecturer overseeing the module with effort and enthusiasm to carry every student along. The textbook provided is on point for what is taught in class alongside the handout/classnote provided by the lecturer. The style of delivery and the teaching style makes it very easy and simple but not without personal effort and practice. Simple or not, it's a module that I enjoy a lot and if I'm able to put my desire ahead i will lean towards getting a career around that side of account/finance. In my first year (currently in second year) all of my modules were assignment related except for taxation which indicate its importance of understanding (in my own view), I enjoy that fact that I had to sat for exam and not write an assignment which I personally consider to give student less enthusiasm of the modules.
This module is great for a person wanting to gain some insight on what it would be like to be a scene of crime officer (SOCO). It gives you the opportunity to examine a crime scene and collect evidence as if it would be done in a real life scenario. The scenes are all outside and (despite the weather conditions!) you must process the crime scene in your teams and aim to collect and preserve all the evidence you see as a potential item to be examined based on the scenario you are given. It is great fun to do and the bonus is you are learning constantly along the way. This is a great module that really gives a great description of the kind of things involved within the degree.
