Course review , 06/04/2018

Submitted by Anonymous on

Great course, gives a good mix of the two subjects whilst developing the essential skills needed. This is an interesting degree and does not make you feel like you're only doing 'half of each', you gain a full understanding of both subjects.

Interesting modules with a lot of variety and opportunities, trips abroad with the socities and two weeks of excavation minimum every two years - this year I spent two weeks in Sicily and only had to pay for my flights. Lecturers are helpful and amazing at what they do, as well as sympathetic to any issues that may arise. Only downside is I wish there were more Ancient History modules regarding African and Asian studies. Resources are amazing, including museums and access to the Newcastle Archaeology Society's records.

All mechanical engineering degreess are hard, there is no doubt about it. I personally believe Newcastle have found a great balace of theoretical work with practical application. The inclusion of occasional visits to nearby companies is also very useful to see engineering in day-to-day life, not just learning mechanica from a textbook. Newcastle is great for making you apply situations to the real world, and ultimately that's what I went to University for!

Course module review - Quechua Language, 09/02/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Quechua is an indigenous language which is spoken throughout South America, but is sadly dying out. This means that opportunities to learn the language are few and far between. Although hard, this module was my favourite by far. I learned how to have a conversation in the language and for half the year, we had a native speaker holding our seminars. Each lesson consists of focusing on a different module, e.g. family, social life, work, etc. You are given a vocabulary test from each module each once a week to ensure that your learning is quick but effective.

Course module review - Journeys of the Imagination in Romantic Poetry, 26/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module was called 'Journeys of the Imagination' and we studied romantic era poets including, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John Keats, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and James Hogg. I personally found Hoog and Byron the most stimulating authors on the module, and I chose to write on their works of 'The Pilgrims of the Sun' (Hogg) and 'Cain' (Byron). The best thing about the module was the assessment, as we were asked to submit a formative assessment to begin with mid-semester to begin to form our ideas.
