The one-star rating in no way reflects the standard of teaching, but the management and organisation of the university as a whole. They have been instrumental in obfuscating information regarding both the strikes and student reimbursement and we are actively having to challenge them to change their tactics.

Great teaching but the university has handled the effects of the strike on students very badly. It is time to listen to students demands.

Course review , 18/11/2017

Submitted by Mark Albright on

I have studied at three different universities and there are certain qualities about Manchester that I really don't like. Firstly there is no campus feel. Secondly, teachers at my previous universities were very down to Earth and students were "normal". Here, lots of students are very middle class and the staff are not friendly and sometimes confrontational. In one class, the lecturer had a five minute arguement with a student who was speaking to someone next to him. This was in a huge lecture hall in Roscoe and there was barely any audible noise.

The structure of the degree programme is very good in the way that you get an introduction to all subjects in your first year, and then go on to choose all modules and your potential specialism in your second and third year. This gives a lot of freedom, and you only have to focus on the topics you want to. However, the downside to this is the unfairness of marks. For example marketing modules are often assessed with 100% examination, while entrepreneurship modules use more coursework and have the opportunity for higher marks than marketing lecturers give.

Course module review - Experimental Design and Statistics, 11/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module is compulsory and is not something that I would choose to do. Although it is labelled as statistics, it actually teaches us how to create coding in a program called 'R' which then does the statistics for us. I've personally never needed to use R in any of my lab work so I don't find it a very useful thing to learn and the course content was quite difficult to grasp. The experimental design side was useful for designing the experiments I did in my projects.

Course module review - Drugs: From Molecules to Man, 09/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

It is a hard module but in my opinion the best of first year. You learn about the different types of drugs used to treat asthma, heart diseases as as well as getting background information on the different kind of receptors there are in the body and which receptors are affected by certain types of drugs. The lecturer Dr Prince is fantastic because he provides many resources online and his lecture notes are rather detailed but also he makes the lectures interesting and they can be funny due to his really sarcastic manner.
