I have learn so much more than I ever imagined possible over the last 4 years. I am now pretty much fluent in Spanish, thanks to the amazing staff at NTU. The ab-inicio program really is incredible and I cannot recommend it enough!

Nottingham Trent University has been great in some ways and disappointing in others...The city campus can be confusing but it in a great location and has lots of facilities there.The course content is alright, some aspects are far more interesting than others... but that's always going to be the case! I'm really excited about my 3rd year modules as there are lots of different options, with quite a variety of subjects.

The teaching is where it really varies, a lot of lecturers are incredibly passionate and interesting and are great supervisors, but there are some lecturers that aren't quite as enthusiastic about teaching and it's really difficult to learn from them... If you're stuck with one of those for a research project or a difficult subject then it can make things so much harder.

Overall I'm enjoying the course, the assessments are varied rather than being all exams etc which is great.The bad parts of the course are pretty easily over looked, as you can always compensate with hard work and advise from tutors.

Another note is that NTU has a great Mental Health support system and put on lots of events to help with things like relaxation, study skills and career planning,

I really love the majority of my degree because it takes a new approach to sociology, focusing on an emerging concept of public sociology. However, if you are not interested in this type of sociology and looking for a more well rounded Masters it can have its draw backs. The best part of the course is the different types of assessments that range from posters, presentations, essays, dissertations and reports. By doing such a range of assessments I feel like I am prepared for when I finish because I have gained experience in a number of different things that will useful for future jobs. It's great to know how to write an essay but it is more likely I will need the skills to give presentations and reports later in life.

My overall degree has been a pleasant experience over the past 3 years, the course leader is extremely helpful and always on hand for advise with speedy replies to all emails.

The coursework and exams are well explained with feedback providing sufficient information on where to improve for future pieces. There are plenty of systems to access through the NOW website which is a forum where we can access all module and course information and slides from lectures and seminars , as well as the online library system with operator you can talk to through messenger set up on the library one search to help with any issues.

The course also is extremely good at providing work experience opportunities by forwarding emails from external providers with things such as working abroad , helping out within the community as well as cv advise for improvements and help with what future employers are looking for, this is done within a module within the curriculum.

My course at Nottingham Trent University has great lecturers which are not only experts in their fields but are also great with the students, developing relationships that when you're in need of help they are easy to talk to and really understand how to help you.

The facilities really cater for your needs, giving you space to revise and work with other people specific to your course and has a vast amount of equipment to further your studies; The equipment ranges from 3D printers to a full surveying equipment and there is always staff on hand to help you using said equipment.

With it being a sandwich course we get to spend a year studying at a practice, this gives a dramatic chance to secure yourself a job after graduation or gives you that extra edge when applying for one. Not only that but it does help you develop your skills and professionalism for working in this field and really gives you a boost just before doing your final year, which can be crucial to getting a higher grade.

I highly recommend this course because its a great way to get into the construction industry (+ AT's are making more money now-a-days)

The course itself is very interesting on the most part, varying areas covered across all aspects of business. I would say it's more a business management course with a focus on marketing. The tutors are genuinely passionate about what they teach and have your best interests at heart.

The first two years of the course are not too bad. You receive a lot of feedback, contact time, lectures and lessons to help you as a designer. It makes it seem like the your are getting your monies worth, especially as we now pay ip to 9k a year for tuition fees. However, being a final year student, I would not recommend the course. The final year is the only year that counts also, so it's all or nothing. There is nothing good about the course, you are not getting your monies worth. There is no support or enough contact time to help students through their toughest year at University. The university and campus itself are great, unfortunately the course, the structure, the facilities and support are not.

The degree is quite expansive as it covers a range of different topics such as Microbiology, CSI photography etc. There are some parts of the modules that are quite difficult than others and a few lectures would help out when you're finding a certain aspect difficult while others may expect you to go and look for the answer and may not give you any sort of guidance. The forms of assessment are quite good i.e. a court assessment however some assessments and coursework are put too close together that so much that it would become way too stressful to try and keep on top of all of it so there should be bits of gaps and not all of them jam packed together. I did enjoy it a bit in first year but now it has just become too stressful and affecting my health but if you are passionate about it and are certain this is what you want to do then it would be very enjoyable.Being able to keep up with your work and knowing how to prioritise things would really help with this course as well/

Ignore: I believe the social-political discussions surrounding economics are extremely important and interesting.Modules such as Jean Monnet Europe, and Research Project have proven to be very current and interesting.Modules such as Leadership & Employability (L&E) are honestly a waste of time. Could maybe consider adopting Jordan B Petersons self-authoring suite in place.Research Project should not be the same 20 credits as L&E module.The pacing of assessments through the 3 years is incredibly back heavy. They should either spread them out more over 3rd year or have some more assessments in 1st and 2nd year.For example, 3 coursework’s that were 60%, 60% and 100% of a module were in at the end of the year a week apart from each other finishing on the 5th May. They could move the final one to after the exam period (with 3 exams in)It should be noted as a 2:1 student thus far, I had never read a journal article until final year which is ridiculous.I feel a lot more employable from this course and would recommend it to anybody however. Best decision of my life.Robert Ackrill is saving grace of teaching staff.
