Coleraine - modern campus, great vibes around lecturers and students. Not the same level of nightlife, but hard to beat Kellys and the Anchor is a handy spot too.

BSc (Hons) Public Relations

From the first module we studied I automatically fell in love with my course. There is such a variety of topics you get the opportunity to try out during the course and I would definitely recommend it to other students, can lead to many opportunities such as marketing, communications, events, etc.

BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care Policy

Some of the course content is very repetitive.

There's a good range of books in the library but many of them are very outdated. There is also a good range of journals online but they are sometimes difficult to get access to.

Course module review - Biomechanics 1, 09/03/2017

Biomechanics 1

Although personally this module isn't particularly a favourite of mine, or do I really enjoy it, I passed with better marks than expected and I actually enjoy it more now than I did when I first began.

I feel the tutor that was taking leadership of this module was of great help and I feel takes the majority of my regards to passing the module. They had great patience with me and my learning to understand several aspects of the course. I also feel they were very flexible with free time to help and meet with me to better my understand of certain areas I was struggling with.

Chemistry 1
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

The course had one exam and some short pieces of coursework based on worked examples. There needed to be some more sessions to help with working out calculations in the exam because a lot of people found it difficult to identify how to do it correctly just from lecture slides. It would have been useful to have sessions where you could work through some examples with the lecturer or students.
Otherwise, it was an insightful module and the lecturer was very good.

Politics and Governance of Welfare
2.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
2.0 / 1 review

This module threw you in at the deep end. Many of the students taking this module had never studied politics before and had no political knowledge. Although there was breif overviews, many students were still left confused as the module content didn't start from the very beginning.

This module was also very boring as there was nothing done to try and make it interesting or even interactive.
