The campus is huge and is well laid out. The facilities are fantastic and I've never been unable to access equipment that I have needed. They are constantly updating and improving the facilities to ensure they are of the highest quality. The course is brilliant and the course leaders always ask for and immediately act on our feedback so that they can improve the course for us and for upcoming students. I really feel that our opinions are valued.

I feel supported coming from a low income family. I have been automatically offered a bursary that has helped me to get a new laptop that is much better suited for doing work on.

It was very easy to apply for the doctors and I have had several appointments since joining, I have felt very comfortable and happy with their service. I think that provisions for mental health support could always be improved by offering even more support to all students and staff members.

This is about one module in particular: Digital Communication Management (DCM).

The lecturer, Jordan Phillips, is a guest, who loves to tell us about how he runs his own business. He has openly said that we are not his priority as he has other jobs. My degree is my priority. 

He changes his mind all the time. We are in the middle of an assignment due next month, and everyone is confused. We have never been taught how to do the things he is asking for us. He always says "this is how you do it" and then next week, you come in and he says it's wrong.

Course module review - Equity and Trusts, 14/05/2016

Equity and Trusts

This particular module has a great team of lecturers and workshop tutors. The lectures have been fully engaging and the supplementary workshops helped to further the knowledge gained in the lecture. The team have made a very complex module a lot simpler through great teaching styles. The mix of assessments on the module offers something for everyone. It is a core module for any law student so it is very lucky that it was as good as it has been!

For a 15 credit module, we have to do too many works. I simply do not understand why we were required to have a 2 hrs workshop where all we did was sit around in a group of 4/5 and discuss the questions based on the lecture. Most of the time, the students were going off-topic and when the discussions were finished each group had to shout-out the answers/idea and the rest took note of that. Nobody knew whether those were correct or not and we had our assessments based on those discussion.

Undertaking life projects and working with the real architects is a fabulous experience that allows to learn and develop knowledge and understanding. Team work is a numbe one priority which me as a student is learning on a day to day basis. This gives an idea of how the proffesion is going and provides valueable experience for my future careere opportunity. The resources however are not too great at the unversity. I want to highlight the little number of A0 plotter that are crucial for every architecture student.
