I study nursing and the course is rather disoriented and the placements are not very well organised. There are some amazing lecturers who deserve my tuition fee and some who really just aren’t up to scratch. I wish I’d gone to a different uni with better priorities than spending money to build new buildings whilst building a new campus

Course was unorganised and unsuitable. Multiple changes in lecturers due to student complaints and final year made more stressful by being hauled into a wrongly accused academic misconduct meeting for plagiarism of a website on communism on an essay about the co op

BA (Hons) Professional Investigative Practice

My degree provokes interesting questions. As the title of my course it not a typical university course, it gets people talking. With a focus on the criminal justice system, Investigations and the law and howits changing my course provides an array of job opportunities not only restrictive to the police force. As we live in a technological era, cyber crime and fraud is an ever developing crime that will be a big earner in careers in the forseeable future.

My course is brilliant! I love the fact that we get 2 placements a year to give us real experience in the job.
However, i wish that the teaching of the subjects were more fluent sometimes. I feel rushed and sometimes aren't helped because they need to press on, and if we do stop to go over information we miss out on vital information that can't get covered because we had to settle some confusions.

The concent of teaching is broad and offers a lot of useful angles on important issues. The contact hour are well spend and the teachers come up with original approaches towards class management and assesment work. The use of online material is very well done in terms of teaching us how to find information online, information that might be useful for our future study and employment. The complexity is being brought up as the course goes, but keeping with the students progress. The teachers are offering students variety of sources to look on and offer guidance as how to work with them.

From year 1 I have had the same teacher for this module. She is one of my favourite teachers and is one of the best in the business school. She constantly offers help to students who don't understand and offers extensions to students who may be struggling with assignments, overall I would give her a 10/10 because she has taught me a lot of useful things that I will need in future for my career as an accountant

This module is taught by the course leader and is well structured, clear and also enjoyable. This module has mixed practical skills, group work, presenting skills with academic writing skills and much more. The module is split equally between a group presentation and an individual essay. I feel like just enough freedom is given for independent learning whilst having resources and help available.
