The campus isn't massive but it's easy to get around it as well as the town and surrounding areas. Plenty to do in town too.

Course review , 31/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The degree I am studying is quite complex due to the various amount of topics being covered however the the topics we cover in lectures are very interesting. The lecturers make the sessions very engaging and enjoyable with different teaching styles e.g. handouts, powerpoints, reading lists etc.
The assessment style for the degree is 100% coursework which i prefer due to my personal preference of not enjoying taking exams. All of the modules are assessed through essays but occasionally portfolios and presentations to help with different types of learners.

My degree is perfect for my lifestyle. Daily lectures lasting between 2 and 3 hours with lots of class interaction between the lecturer and students. The library is close by and the internal search system means I can check to see what books are in the library before I get there.

The course is fairly small with there being only about 25 of us in my year. I think this is one of the positives of the course as it means our lecturers know us all personally and when it comes to job opportunities outside of uni they know which students are more suited to what kind of jobs. The downside is that you are constantly working with the same groups of people which means that if there are people that you know don't pull their weight or that you don't for whatever reason get on with, you're still going to end up having to work with them.

Course module review - Individual Research Project, 02/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

I was very worried about this module due to it being independent research and completely dependent on the student. However the resources and lectures provided for this module helped me with choosing my topic and therefore a question and research that was feasible. Each lecture contained information about different aspects of the individual Research project. They were very informative and detailed. The lectures were taught very well by the lecturer as she made sure that she had our interest all the time by including us in discussions and asking questions.
