The campus is centrally located in Winchester close to the town centre. The architecture is stunning and facilities are almost always great. The student union puts on a wide variety of events but would benefit from establishing an alternative wednesday night schedule between a traditional club night to the classic BOP party anthems. The advice and societies aspect of the SU is solid. Lecturers are often friendly and approachable and the smaller courses benefit immensely from this as its always easy to seek advice and guidance.

As an LGBT student I always felt welcome on campus and in my courses. Whilst groups were available to join I did not but was made aware of their existance. The uni is also involved in pride events.

The campus is beautiful, it has a really chilled and relaxed feel to it. The uni's best facility is definitely the 24 hour library its so handy to be able to use the library whenever you feel motivated to work even if its the early hours of the morning and has loads of comfy seating areas.

BEd (Hons) Primary Education with QTS (3 years)
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

The degree is taught in extreme depth. The knowledge you learn in seminars and lectures is above and beyond what is required of a good teacher - the university aims for all to be excellent practitioners. I have felt super supported throughout and despite it being a very full on, intense course at times, I feel prepared to teach. The lecturers are all friendly and make seminars interactive and relatable. Only negative is that a lot of lectures are repeated which is not needed or liked by students on a Friday at 9am.

BA (Hons) History and the Modern World
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This course although primarily centred on modern history has allowed me to explore other aspects of history I would have not previously considered. The course had been dynamic, ranging from individual essays, to team presentations to informative and interesting seminars. The course had encouraged me to develop skills useful to life outside our of university. The lecturers are engaging and are easily approachable to be able to get help on my assignments. I feel this course is good for anyone who enjoys modern history as I have been able to choose modern topics.

LLB (Hons) Law

My degree is complex yet exciting. There's plenty of hard work but it's all interesting and because it revolves around this countries legal system, it's ever changing. The way in which it assesses is also novel to me. It is a good way however because it gives your personality a chance to shine through.

Part A focused on implications of research methods such as inductive and deductive reasoning where you were to answer an essay questions. Where as part B was open book and commuter based where student had to perform, analysis and write results for statistical test covered in the lecture material. There were 12 weeks of lectures which covered more advance statistical tests than the previouse material covered in years one and two of research methods.

Controversy And Censorship
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This module is changed every year to deal with current controversial issues as well as older ones. For example, last year, we discussed the Charlie Hebdo attacks and they're portrayals in the media as well as suffragettes and how they're represented in dramatic stagings. We also looked at the historical and current censorship of drama in theatres, TV and film. This module was incredibly engaging, we used the entire 3 hour lecture every week and often overran because we wanted to talk more about the issues.
