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 tutors aren't very good either, there's one lady called Denise who really knows her stuff and really cares about the job she's fantastic, but the rest of the tutors are useless failed actors or performers that want to earn a whack doing nothing. It's embarrassing to be honest, I got a first and I put in no effort. I got an 86 on one module 'clowning' and I knew NOTHING. The guy running it just didn't want the module axed cause he's a DOCTOR OF CLOWNING. It's a dying art Richard, if it's not dead already. Let it go.

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

it is a extremely good course, I have learnt so much during the past years.the course content is very relative to what ıs expected in the industry.The structure of the course is very good, as the studies are carried on in the same manner which where interrupted in college.The course is some how complex but with help and support from lecturers and tutors, problems become easy to solve.During the studies I have learnt how to carry out number of experiments involving engineering components which in turn gave me a clear insight of theory and practical learning.I have enjoyed very much while studying this degree.

Having studied for a BA at Salford, I thought that the MA programme was a disappointing step down. Sure, the work is harder and there is more of it, but the lack of organisation is pretty disappointing.

If there was more organisation and structure, this programme would be much better. The University of Salford is a fantastic university, but this particular course, while being sufficient in some aspects, is just under par and isn't representative of what they offer as a learning institution.

This course covers a wide range of topics within the area of business. In the first year, the topics cover the main principles of business, such as marketing, accounting and HR. This is made up of an essay and an exam for each module. In second year you start to develop deeper understanding of businesses and how they work. This is through modules such as Entrepreneurship and Project Management. For the final year, the subjects are similar to first year, however I assume they delve a lot deeper and give you a greater sense of the importance of these in business. Both second and third year are also made up of an assignment and exam for each module. There is an optional year of placement between the second and final year, where you get to work within any sector of business and get paid! A lot of my friends also chose to spend their second year on Erasmus, studying abroad, so that is an option too. It is a highly rewarding and enjoyable course and the teaching is of a very high standard.

The lecturers are all very knowledgeable in the subject area and are willing to help at any point. The course can be a little tedious but can be fun at the same time. So for example I'm more towards doing the art side of gaming so I can find programming to be tedious.

The area itself is alright, it's got everything a student needs but smaller areas aren't very appealing to the eye. But then again it is right next to Manchester so if you need to do a bit of shopping then Manchester is always available.

Great course and fantastic lecturers however, there is a lack on in the field activities. There are no trips to places involving criminology or sociology and there is only one placement which is optional.

So the first 2 months have been pretty relaxed. The lecturers have said to take it easy in the first semester but obviously not too easy otherwise I wouldn't get enough done. The first year consists of no 3D modelling and plenty of drawing. Half of the week is really enjoyable but the other half drags and is a bit of a bore. It doesn't really help not knowing anything about coding and being expected to learn it in such a short space of time as well. Monday is the day where I have a lecture which lasts about 20-40 mins and the rest of the morning we do practical work which is fun to do. Tuesday is entirely practical based which is also fun. Wednesday is a day off. Thursday I have to endure a 3 hour lecture which to be honest isnt fun when you're just sat there listening to one man talk for the entire duration of it. And to finalise the week, Friday is the day we do 3 hours of coding which if you have no experience of, you are bound to find it difficult .
