First year is good because everyone does the same modules so everyone gets the same start. From then on I like that you have free choice over what modules you can study. Contact time is average, but lecturers are helpful in that they offer office hours to see them outside of seminars. Forms of assessment that are summative are mostly essays, with some additional pieces.

The course in itself is providing me with the opportunity to head into my desired career. The course content so far I have not necessarily enjoyed due to my expectations of the course being more concentrated on how to teach rather than the background of teaching. The staff are all helpful and really know their subjects. However, due to coming straight from college to university, I have struggled to settle into the rhythm however my lecturers and my advisor have been helping me to overcome these barriers. I'm looking forward to second year where we pick our modules so I can really get stuck in.

The pharmacy course at Uea is fantastic. The course starts off quite broad and sciences focused looking at the pharmaceutical, biological and chemical aspect of drugs and the body. From the second year the clinical focus starts to broaden. We start off learning about conditions such a diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid problems in year two whilst still focusing on. Pharmaceuticals and medicinal chemistry. In the third year the modules become all clinically related meaning by the end of the year you feel like you've made huge strides as a future pharmacist. Final year focus on your dissertation with the clinical module being a psychiatric one focussing on mental health and also looking at illnesses of the central nervous system such as Parkinson's disease. The teaching at Uea is great. They have a mixture of lectures, workshops, TBL (team based learning) and offer a unique opportunity of IPL (inter-professional leaning) with other health care students which was great. Assessments come as exams as you can imagine and coursework such as lab reports. I think Uea has been a fantastic uni to undertake the course at and has really develop myself in key areas in preparation for working life in the world of pharmacy. I would highly recommend the course at Uea but also the university which has made great progress in my time there. They have climbed the university rankings every year without fail and hit their highest ranking this year.

Slightly uninspired by the current content - was slightly hoping for more philosophical, deeper, darker content. I hadn't done psychology at a-level so I guess I built up different expectations. I enjoy the fact that the teaching / structure requires us to be a lot more independent ! And I believe next year will have content I will enjoy thoroughly more

The Drama course at UEA the perfect option for someone wanting to do theatre at a level that's almost the same as a drama school, while working towards a degree. It has a very good balance of practice and theory, with a wide range of modules to choose from every semester/year. While not everyone might be able to get involved, the many extracurricular shows that happen during the year help the students bond while trying out new activities on almost full scale productions. The teachers are friendly and supportive, and most of the assessments are practical, with usually only short pieces to accompany them.

The degree was very enjoyable. I have been given incredible versatility in module choices and the academic staff at the UEA have been incredibly supportive in regards to academic advice and mental health support.

In addition to that the teaching of the course has been detailed and I have been given extensive opportunities for extra curricular study.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at UEA and don't really have any negative points about my experience. The only problem I have had is that assessment feedback could be a little more detailed.

In this Medicine course; you do three modules each year ( each module represents a particular system in the body e.g. Gastroentology) . At the end of each module you are assessed by doing an OCSEs, where you have 5 minutes for each station and are asked to do certain pratical skills e.g. Take a history from a patient.Throughout the year, you will you be exposed to many patients. Every week you are placed in a GP practice to learn about the module and speak to patients that have the relavent condition. In addition, at the end of each module, you will be placed in a hospital placement for one month and see patients on the other end of the spectum with the related conditions to the module.I thoroughly enjoy this course, it's high emphasis on patient teaching has made me more of a people's person. I also have made alot of friends , because this course is PBL- based. This means that every week , you meet up with your group to present and teach the conditions of the module to eachother.

In terms of feedback, at the end of each module- your GP tutor and PBL tutor will have a meeting with you and discuss on anytbing that you need to improve on.I strongly recommend this course!

Attending UEA to do nursing is without doubt a challenge. For half of the course you are working full time on placement, and for the other half you are attending lectures, evidence based learning groups, completing assignments and continual directed study for when you are at home. It is not a course for the faint hearted. However the reward far outweighs the cons. Students are offered a thorough academic education that will prepare you well for the outside world.
