The biomedical science course is great, so interesting and filled with practical learning. Lecturers during my first year have helped so much.

BA (Hons) Business & Management Studies with Marketing

4.0 / 1 review

The modules involved on this course are both interesting but also useful. I believe the information I have been taught will help me when I have a job in marketing. The lecturers are very helpful, however I find that if you don't attend the lecturers will not have time for you and won't help you. I have enjoyed this course, i've made lifelong friends and I find the course very interesting.

I had a great experience at the university overall and made some fantastic friends. The halls of residence were nice, I was lucky enough to land myself an en-suite self catered room.

The course itself wasn't great. The resources were not good at all for any media student hoping to work in the industry. No radio station, magazine or newspaper...

I thoroughly enjoyed this course as I really liked the other students, some teachers (Robert Taffurelli, Nina Jones etcetera) and the media side of things. The library is well stocked and the online system to reserve books is easy to use. The printing system is easy to use across all libraries and the set-up of the campus I was on was easy to get around (Cyncoed). The on-sight gym is quite good and conveniently situated by the halls of residence for first years.

Database Applications
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

Probably the best taught module on my course. I feel this has improved my technical knowledge the most and is a genuine employable skill. The module leader is very experienced and very good at teaching novice/ beginner students. His lectures were fairly engaging considering the content he had to present.

The lecturer is poor and incredibly rude when replying to emails which have legitimate questions. Subject content is pretty dull. Going to lectures doesn't seem to enhance learning more and it could just be done sitting in my room looking at the lecture slides. Very demoralising getting limited feedback in the essays and then when asking for support getting a ride response.
