The facilities such as the library, availability of computers, extra help sessions and online module aids are both in abundance and extremely high quality. There are so many extras available outside of lectures when it comes to learning course material, aslong as you are willing to look for what works for you lectures are only the tip when it comes to information for assignments and exams. The lecturers themselves are extremely approachable also and when giving lectures we tend to have smaller groups so we combine lectures with seminars and make an interactive discussion out of most sessions engaging you more with learning so you are more likely to take something away. Many lectures I have experienced so far have also been extremely witty and able to crack a good job (usually topic related but we will take it) and are good and easy to get on with because of this. The only real downside is administration. In my three years at uni my student office changed every year. Both is location, staff and which courses it dealt with within the faculty. Meaning nothing ever really became normal and never got to settle. So coursework was lost after submission, module guides went up late at the start of semester one (to the point in one year we picked our modules the day after our reinduction. It’s meant to be atleast a month before) and a few other admin details that have escaped me so clearly we’re not that important just frustrating at the time in top of the other things. Overall I enjoyed my uni experience and shall be returning there to do my masters.

Course review , 16/05/2017

BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

The degree overall is very informative . It offers you lots of career routes so you're not limited and you can keep an open mind till the end of the course to actually decide what you would like to become. You can go through the pharmacy route to a haematologist consultant route or if not you can do a few more extra years to gain a PhD and qualify as a doctor. The content of the course can be very overwhelming as there's too much to learn.

BA (Hons) Business Management

The degree makes you think a lot about how a business works and how the employees, employers relationship. It is a good subject to study and I would definitely recommend it. However, it seems like experience is needed more in management now than theory.

Content overall seems interesting, but is not taught in an interesting way. Structure is generally awful, something which mirrors that of the university as a whole. Work can be complex at time, mainly due to substandard lecturers, to combat this we are told the exams will be made easy, and given past papers which are essentially the same as these, therefore the degree tests your memery. Assignments are generally parts of the module the lecture either cannot be bothered to teach, or forgot was on the syllabus so squeezed it into there.

Course module review - Bioremediation, 04/07/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Bioremediation
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

This is an options module that I was really unsure about taking, I mean what is bioremediation anyway?

The course is well structured taking you through what bioremediation is (solving problems, mainly environmental, using biological organisms and products)  to doing practicals in the well provisioned labs there.

The lecturer and guest lecturers that he arranged were all interesting and I appreciated the extra effort put into finding us 'guests' and giving us tours of the machines behind the scenes.

Citizen Soldiers: The British Army and the Second World War 1939-45
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

This module was based around the British army throughout the second world war. This ranges from just before in the inter-war period to just after the end of the second world war. The structure normally covered a period of war (Inter war for instance) or a particular campaign (The Italian Campaign for instance). With every week there being a presentation from the class which formed part of the grade, and helped us learn from the topic. The teaching was top notch. The lecturer knowing the ins and outs of the field and answering questions diligently.
