The university campus is small making it easily accessible for students however the size is also a downfall. There are several places to get food on campus, although the only franchise outlet onsite is quite expensive resulting in students seeking cheaper alternatives on campus where price reflects the quality of food. Two shops at the university (Main campus and West downs) both with limited capacity for stock. Only two cashpoints onsite of the whole university which are occasionally out of order meaning students have to walk into town to draw cash out for free. Good sized library with 3 floors. A vast selection of study spaces available to students located all around the university, from quiet study areas and rooms available for hiring to dicussion and more social study areas. The terrace bar is open week days however more on the pricey side considering it is a student bar. The student union is very spacious with four floors however, only two are open during SU events which limits capacity. Overall a good campus for a small university with the town centre a 15 minute walk away.

Lounge areas for minority groups to get together available for students. Commuters area for those travelling from afar and need somewhere to relax/study. Bursaries and scholarships awarded to those from lower social economic background which do not need to be paid back allowing which is a great help in supporting students struggling with living costs.

Easy access points - wheelchair slopes located all around campus and student accommodation available for disabled individuals. However, West downs campus in particular is located on a hill and consistered less accessible. Gym could have more resources available for disabled students.

Course review , 13/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

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.

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.

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.

Course module review - Advanced Statistics And Applied Statistics , 21/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module was one of four options for third year students. Assessment of this module was 100% exam (2.5 hours) split into two parts. 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.

Course module review - Controversy And Censorship , 14/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

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.
