BSc (Hons) Medical Biochemistry
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This course is focused on the understanding of the fundamental nature of chemical compounds within nature and their roles in structure, communication, homeostatic life and pathogenesis - with a focus on human physiology and cell anatomy. The first year of this degree focuses on making sure all students - irrespective of their previous backgrounds - have the  knowledge of the basic concepts and systems to continue onto further more in-depth modules in subsequent years.

LLB (Hons) Law and Criminology
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

I think that my degree was a sensible and recommendable choice. Doing criminology with equal waiting to Law sets me apart from the single honours law students looking to go into the Criminal Justice System. It has also opened doors within both areas. For example, criminology has a Youth Justice module whereas law doesn't whereas Law has Criminal law whereas criminology doesn't. I think that this mix enables me to be aware and apply the law (law part of degree) but also be aware of the theories and effects on real people behind the law.

BEng (Hons) Medical Engineering
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The medical Engineering course at Swansea University was simply excellent. The course covers a lot of general engineering principles, chemistry, and medical related subjects. I also had the opportunity to study abroad at Texas A&M which I would strongly recommend to anyone. The overall atmosphere of the university is relaxed and friendly and the nightlife isn't too bad either.

Course module review - Advanced Economic Analysis, 11/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Advanced Economic Analysis
1.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
1.0 / 1 review

Neither the module content or the lecturer are interesting, it was made a compulsory module this year for economics students which meant many don't want to be there, which is not helped by the fact that the lecturer simply reads off the slides which by themselves do not offer full explanation for the material covered.
