The course i was studying at south bank in all honesty was a waste of time, the stuff being taught in my course was more or les the same stuff i learnt in sixth form. Theirs no support system or any type of help from the lecturers, they teach you badly and then leave simple. They dont even bother to try and learn your name. Uni there felt very lonely and the coursework was so simple. the exams we had were a joke and could be done from home on your computer where if you wanted to you coud easily cheat, so overall i did not have a pleasent time at this uni and sadly now i am in debt because of this.
Have no enjoyed my course, in all honesty was more like a college course than uni, I was in 3 days a week and that was it and it was only a few hours, wasted 9k on a uni that o could have taught myself from home.
So far only reached second semester of year 2. However year one was helpful in setting a foundation in terms of presentation, referencing skills, and the use of working in a team. First year modules focused on innovation in the 21st century and how important innovation is, the basics of marketing from swot analysis to pestle. It also consisted of focus on strategy and economics and the structure and culture of an organisation. Also learnt some accounting which was helpful in understanding bookkeeping and profit and loss sheet. The second year so far has focused on consumer and buyer behaviour, which helps in understand the thoughts and process of advertisements. Employment perspectives which looks at LinkedIn Cv's getting a job both dull and part time getting a placement or internship interviews and assessment centre mocks. And finally managing the enterprise which once again goes into depth on strategy and its implications within a company or organisation.
It's difficult to leave a review as the course only started at the end of September. However from my brief time at lsbu I can say that the staff seem to have great knowledge. I however feel that the fact two of the lectures cover the same material for a short while and feel this is a waste of time and course students to switch off
This is a third year module and looks specifically at specialist breads. This module is fantastically taught, has a hard but fair exam and is extremely usefully. From sourdough starters to fancy breads this module covers a range of impressive recipes that are both tasty and could easily be a staple product if you were to then run a bakery. It rounds of the degree well forcing you to use all the previous skills learnt and quickly mastering them. It was a highlight of the whole degree for me personally.
This module is one of the most useful modules in the course as it describes the process of how experiments and studies are carried out and how the data is gathered which allows you to understand research in much more depth. The teaching on this module is very good as everything is explained to you very clearly and concise.
The module gave a good overview of the research process and it's significance in nursing and evidence based practice. The module was taught by experts in the field therefore were able to rely important information clearly and concisely. The assignment was relevant to practice and allowed us to utilise the knowledge gained during the module. Overall a very enjoyable and beneficial module.
I've found the course enjoyable throughout my 3 years, the teachers have always been helpful whenever I needed the help. The quality of the lectures are always interesting, although sometimes the seminars can be a little repetitive.Content is quite varied too, you always get a different perspective on subjects from the lectures too. Also there's a lot of choice to chose from in your second and final year, so there's always something interesting to choose from.
I am nearly half way through the 2 year fast tracked PgDip and I am finding the course amazing. As a mature student I find the fast paced environment really suitable to keep me focused and I love that we were put on placement very fast as it solidified learning really fast and ensured me on my commitment to the degree as I love the job. Our classes are small (12 people) which is really great for student involvement and discussions and we have a small number of lecturers all who have lots of clinical experience which is excellent to learn from. The course is really structured and a great balance of academic and placement learning and I would defiantly recommend it!
I really like my degree. I'm learning lots and because the course is 50% practical, I'm learning whilst on my feet and whilst doing things, connecting with patients and their families, and other members of the hospital. The structure is strange because of the size of my cohort, so we're all split. It's a little impersonal because you always come across people you've never seen or met, but that also means there's lots of support and different people to meet and hang out with.
