My university is mostly an old campus except the main gateway building. The classrooms are generally large and the library has recently been updated. The library support staff are excellent and should be used at as many opportunities as possible.

Course review , 23/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The university offers relatively small class sizes, which is is great because you're able to have the attention you need. Lecturers also often encourage asking for help and setting up meetings with personal tutors to check on progress and clarify anything you don't understand. However, the course is not very well structured, which she is a good thing and a bad thing. It's beneficial because we have a say in how we would like to commence the course and the modules (to some degree), but the lack in structure means we only spend 9hours in lectures, seminars and workshops total per week.

I am fully enjoying my time on this degree, partly due to the community and partly, of course, due to the teaching. Whilst I feel that some of the core scientific skills we have covered for the first half of this year do not wholly apply to me, they are very useful for others and work well to get everyone up to speed. I love the biodiversity module, which involves a lot of drawing, which I realise is not for everyone. Our lecturers are friendly and consistently helpful, and the small tight knit classes, as well as individual tutorials mean the teaching staff get to know you personally.

Course module review - Sports Massage Therapy, 11/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Although the teaching isn't the best, this means that you have to look up alot of injuries in your own time, which means a lot of reading and watching youtube videos to understand the injuries and the structures around it. It is the most practical module of the course, which means it is very hands on with others, this allows to to work on an actual human being and assess other people's bodies.

Course module review - Ba HONS Primary Education with QTS, 31/01/2014

Submitted by Anonymous on

Although disappointed that the course no longer features inclusion as one of its specialism I am so far enjoying the course. As a degree which is job specific the work experience is well suited to those needs. Forms of assessment, although sometimes seeming pointless, do offer a great deal of knowledge and reading- so theorists are an important topic to research! It is a very laid back and creative course which is also very fun at times.
