The campus itself isn’t as big as other universities which I have visited but it is cosy and friendly. Whenever I need help, I have someone to go to who will help in any way possible.

BSc Environmental Science
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

As a degree I believe it is an up and coming subject considering the state of the environment at the coming time. It's a great course with only 2 official exams over 4 years and 2 online exams. I would like more moduel choice and content, but think it's off to a great start.

BA Visual Design and Communication
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

The content of the degree covers tutorials, workshops, industry involvement, professional practice and theory related to the visual communication industry. The classes are structured face to face with the lecturers who are available to offer advice and feedback when needed. The first year is especially focused on technical skills, and as the course progresses the student is left to their own decisions. The technical workshops (software skills, typography, layout) have been especially helpful.

BA (Hons) Drama and Performance
1.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
1.0 / 1 review

Whilst the university building is brand new, along with the degree - this course is suffering because of it. For the number of students on the course there is only one small theatre and no spare practice rooms. The other students and lecturers have problems with the drama students rehearsing in public spaces. Due to the lack of room in the place, it means the timetabling for classes in the theatre is erratic and unhelpful if you live far away or need to get public transport. When rehearsing late at night, the canteen closes at 3ish, so no food available.

Course module review - Dissertation (Archaeology), 26/05/2016

Dissertation (Archaeology)
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

The dissertation module involved a 8000-9000 word dissertation, fully referenced. The topic is chosen by the student - best to choose something that they are passionate about otherwise it becomes a real slog. Having already had some experience in academic writing, the module wasn't too out of reach however there were a number of students in the class who faced difficulties such as dyslexia or English not being their first language. I felt these students could have had more support during the module. The first submission had plenty of feedback, however this diminished as time went on.

Course module review - Traditional custom, belief and folklore of the northern isles, 14/05/2016

Traditional custom, belief and folklore of the northern isles
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

This module looks at how rural and folk people use performance in relation to celebration and tradition. Although maybe not everybody's thing, we were able to adjust our brief to something we found interesting, and created a short film and installation piece for a public audience, based on the legend of the Selkie. The piece could really be as detailed and in depth as you liked, but you were pushed by the lecturer to stretch yourself. I appreciated this, but when she disliked your ideas it was plainly obvious and flat out made you change it.
