Parts of the campus outdated, facilities for built environment students limited e.g software computers. Lack of organisation and preparation in modules. Lack of communication between lectures and head of modules

The university gets refurbished pretty much year, amazing professors and excellent staff. I study Architectural design and technology and it has been an amazing and easy journey because of the all the facilities and helps provided by the teachers and the university. Excellent career service providing jobs related to their courses and normal jobs at university which fitts with class times. Helpful and friendly student union staff with quite quick tracking to resolve students problems. In totall it is an amazing university for those who look for good journey and live student life.

BA (Hons) Performance: Comedy Practices
2.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
2.0 / 1 review

It's a good thing to do if you're inherently funny, like to right and perform and wanna move to Manchester and do that for three years and try build a life here. But you won't LEARN anything useful. You'll meet people and create opportunities but that's down to you, you need to put yourself out there and really want it. Otherwise there's literally no point.

The course is well structured with flight testing also included on the course. 90% of the lectures are brilliant but you also get the odd 10% that just drag you back. It's a very difficult course to take at university but worth all the pain. You learn a lot of stuff in such a short period of time it's great

Course module review - Business Ethics, 22/05/2016

Business Ethics
2.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
2.0 / 1 review

As I stated previously, this course is supposed to be the perfect balance of tech and business. This courses relevance to my degree and my career is minimal. Of course ethics cannot be disregarded as its the layers on which the business is built on. However, in an academic setting possible more relevant to law and ethics students. It would have been more preferable for ethics to be a single subject within a module.

Cell Pathology

This module gave me the opportunity to make a poster on cancer bio markers as a group. Team work, time management, research skill and communication skill all came out to play. This module is assessed 40% and 60% exams. Mostly covering pathologies in depth, it is like a sequel to a module from my second year module pathophysiology.
