This has been an amazing class, very interesting. The professor has a great talent in transferring his knowledge to us, most of who never had had any past background in the subject of Marketing and Marketing Management. We were showed many many examples to understand the principles of marketing and how they are applied in our everyday life as well as career. We also had 2 guest lecturers from outside companies who talked to us about marketing and how they used it to start their businesses with success. The class was a highlight of the year and i did not want it to end.The module was examined both my a group project which was the fifty percent of the total mark and an examination for the rest fifty percent, both of which were challenging, fun but not difficult to accomplish successfully.Last but not least, the professor was always there for any questions and was trying his best to make us enjoy the classes and get the most out of it.
I felt the course has the potential to be very interesting, getting the opportunity to pair theory with practical work. It ended up very frustrating and an enormous waste of time. It ended up being a bit of luck on whether the aircraft would simply fly or not, while if the aircraft did fly, it would be easily destroyed on landing. Therefore a lot of time was wasted redoing work because of failed tests, due to insignificant space to fly and not enough class time for assessment.
This subject is meant to enable the students to build an understanding of the banking and finance sector and the crisis that arose in the past, so as to enable students to know where and how such incidents can be stopped or prevented. But this subject demands a high level of dedication and study research. The number of research papers and articles given to read make us focus less on other subjects in the semister, causing a sense of doubt in the minds of students if the course content was checked against the balance for other subjects while formulation of the same or not.
The teacher for this subject has extremely large knowledge base but has limited time to talk her knowledge out.
I found the course to cover a broad spectrum of topics which I enjoyed. However the assessment was in a problem solving format and it was very difficult to study for as alot of the content was not based on the material in the lectures.
BM402 honours immunology 1 comprises of the immunology course for semester 1 of fourth year. This provides a platform for reinforcing your knowledge obtained from previous year while gaining additional information.
The class is divided into 6 main topics: the innate innumerable system, B and T cell activation, the adaptive immune system, immunity to bacteria, immunity to viruses, and immunity to protozoa. Each of these topics has 5 lectures, one lecture a day. Meaning that every week there is a different topic. This allows a more in depth analysis of each individual topic. Usually, 4 lectures are taught by the lecturer and the final lecture is a research paper presentation, presented by chosen members of the class. This paper interpretation task allows us to develop team working skills through delegating tasks and arranging meetings, PowerPoint creation and presentation skills, and paper analysis and interpretation skills.
There is one assignment worth 20% for this class, and the exam is worth 80%. The assignment is a recent research paper interpretation exam where we are given a paper to analyse and then answer questions based on our understanding of the research paper. This can be quite difficult as there is a lot of advanced wording used, but this can be overcome with lots of preparation and study. The exam is essay based. You have to answer 3 questions from a choice of 6. This allows you to pick the topics in which you would perform the best for.
Overall, this class has provided an in depth understanding of immunology and has provided a strong standing for BM403 honours immunology 2, the second immunology class on semester 2 following this class.
The module is probably one of the most useful throughout the whole program. The content provided is very relevant to what students will use in the working environment. There are five assignments which ensure the student is regularly up to date with the content, and they force the student to think critically. The course is uniquely structured as there are three lecturers assigned for different topics relative to their expertise. Each lecturer does a great job at providing students with real world applications of complicated concepts.
Experiential learning is beneficial to let us utilize the skills we developed and see what we will do in the future as pharmacists. It also helps us to decide whether we want to work in community or hospital in the future. OSCEs provide a fair way of assessing our skills, but I feel the role play scenarios are unrealistic.
This is a course that explores the concept of snobbery in literature from roughly the 19th century. It covers Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf etc. as well as a particularly good play written by a 9 year old and it's assessed by two 1,500 close readings and one 3,000 essay comparing two texts. The resources for this class are amazing, we got a printed handbook at the beginning of the class that had LOADS of material in it from the lecture slides, to secondary material, to pictures and background history. You can tell that Faye really cares about the class and her passion rubs off on you.
This module doesn't just involve how to transfer a house from one party to the next, although that is a part of it, you get to learn what property is (by definition), different types of ownership and so many more things - which may sound dry...but it is surprisingly interesting!
This module teaches students about how a New Venture (start-up) should be approached. In terms of the pre-planning, market research, product design and many other factors in order to maximize the likelihood that the new venture could be successful.Offers students the opportunity to put this into practice and plan a new venture of their own and present it at a very well structured 'Tradeshow'. Very practical and useful for those interested in Entrepreneurship.
