The university has all the right facilities you need! The course I am doing is great! However the foundation year is not at all linked to my actual course subject for next year which is very annoying!

Course review , 16/09/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The overall idea and initially shown structure of this degree seems to be one of great thought and bound to be successful. It does look like any student would be on the way to achieving great skills and knowledge picked from the minds of well qualified teachers and mentors. However, my personal reality was very distant from what I have expected. Some of the ways of teaching could have been improved before being presented to the students as well as the way all examinations went.

University of Essex was a good university that provides a Computer Science course that is run to a high standard I believe.

Modules are broken up into stages, with each student being given a project pathway, to keep track of weekly progress. Lecturers are always willing to help students, even out of hours.

Course provides an introduction to various modules including accounting, finance and quantitative methods, economics, management and marketing using interesting and varied assessment techniques such as powerpoints and in class tests.

Course module review - Approaches To Text , 14/02/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

This is by far the worst experience in education i have ever had. it is a platform for the university's radical left propaganda, and if checked from year to year you can see how acutual iterary theories have been scrapped in favour of lectures on white guilt, intersctional 3rd wave feminism and other extremist left platforms

Course module review - Introduction To Accounting , 23/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Introduction to Accounting was the module I feared the most before coming to University, because I didn't know anything about accounting. I had a pleasure to be taught by a great teaching staff in my first year. Lecturers and my class teachers have been very helpful in understanding the module content and with both of my assessments. My class teacher from the Autumn Term (Dr.Kopita), actually became my most favourite teacher in my first year,because she was really good at explaining things and helped us to understand complicated theory behind Accountancy in terms we easily understood.
