The course I am studying at the moment is International Tourism Management. It is interesting because we learn a lot about history of tourism, the economy which is really important, tourism and society is also interesting subject in which we learn about host and guest relationship. Marketing is the other subjevt we have which is extremely fullfilling my curiosity about how to make people buy a product( in our case a place) Since it is my first year it is not really complex, my assignments consist of reports presentations and essays, all of them have actually been on really interesting topics. We have ti collect and compare data. In marketing we also have online tests for which we have to study from our books, but it is really interesting and I have learned much more than i thought i will.
Child nursing is a very fulfilling job. It requires a lot of time, patience and overall resilience. As a student you need to be able to try new things as well as work within your limitations. Never be afraid to ask questions whilst on placement. It consists of both practical and theory. It allows you to put your theory to practice. Assessments are not so close together and as long as you are organised you are able to complete them within the deadline. Your lecturers are always willing to help and try to respond with 2-3 days. You must genuinely have a love for children as well as the role of a nurse and the 6 C's are always needed whilst on placement. Theory increases your knowledge and allows you to ask questions and also share opinions with your peers and lecturer. As long as you are willing to learn you will get a lot out the course as well as give a lot back and make a difference in the lives of people you meet. Criticism and feedback is given regularly not to bring you down but to make you a better nurse once you qualify so ensure you are able to receive criticism and reflect on each shift at the end of the day finding ways you yourself can identify where you could do better. Nursing is always about learning and furthering your knowledge without being told. Ensure to also complete both pre and post session work.
This course is hard. I need a holiday bottom line. Overall I think the course is structured quite poorly though I'm always rushing to meet 2 deadlines at a time whilst also working. I wouldn't mind extending the course in order to have a proper summer holiday like everyone else. The lecturers are okay, some better than others. I'm in year 2 so I'm not quitting now but I wish there were more honest reviews out there of my course as if I had known it was average I might not have applied.
My course is good because it combines interpreting and translation, which gives me two skills but has pointed me into specialising in just one. Unfortunately we feel that we do not get enough contact hours and revision sessions in the first year. There is not enough practical time nor contact with the interpreting booths nor easy access to them in order to practice what he have learnt. We cannot access the booths when we have free time as they are in a class room which can be used and booked by others in the university- thus preventing us from accessing them and we and they would both disturb each other if 2 separate groups were to be in the room at the same time

The degree programme is well structured, and you are accompanied by the module tutor in the first year to ensure you are getting on ok. There is a lot of support available, from language experts and good feedback to ensure you are always getting the maximum grade. The lecturers are varied so you are able to get a really great bundle of teaching, and I have really enjoyed my time here. Assessments are mainly essay based, and you are supported before the due date on what every lecturer wants. There are also free e-books given to students for each module so you don't need to buy your own.
This module covers the strategic management part involved in businesses. This can be strategic management decisions managers have to take, planning a Information System deployment, outsourcing and change management
This module was based online only, there was no lecture or seminar. a simulation called StratSim was worth 40% of the assessment plus two simulation assessments worth 20% each and finaly two online tests worth 10% each. The simulation was very complex and difficult at times to manage, the aim was to increase the initial stock price of $50. It was dissapointing to know that after 10 simulation decisions your grade depends on the stock price you end up with if over $50 or under. There was a substantial amount of information to guide us on this platform but it required a lot of reading and again it was online based. So we could not see the lecturer as often as we wanted to.
The module is set about forensic psychology - and is broken down into four assessments. An exam in May, an essay in may and two formative assignments of a presentation in May (to aid revision) and an essay in Jan. This is quite unstructured as it means that students are unaware of the value or the mark they have in this class. As all marks are given at the end. There is also a presentation due that isn't useful for everyone, and seems like it is structured to tick off skills then actually learning them. The exam is also unclear - as it is suggested to follow the slides but not all the slides are relevant, as some things are for entertainment or interesting value. The exam content should be laid out clearer
