York uni is a campus based uni and the fact that everything is close to each other is definitely an advantage. The accommodation, academic departments and on campus bars and restaurants are all within walking distance. I love the many events that are always happening on campus too, and if needs be the city of York is 15 mins away by bus. Personally I am really enjoying my course at this uni, it's fascinating to learn more about a subject I'm genuinely interested in as well as meeting the best people doing it. Overall it's an experience I would definitely recommend

BSc (Hons) Biochemistry
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

Great teaching with great plethora of lecturers. The content is challenging but mostly effectively taught, with help always provided if required. There is a mixture of exams and coursework for different modules, which you can choose. The range of modules on offer is generally good, perhaps slightly limited compared to Biology students but still decent. Personally, my supervisor throughout university has been great and encouraging, always welcoming for a chat.

LLB (Hons) Law

University of York teaches in a unique PBL format which is both engaging and rewarding. By working within "student law firms", you gain valuable teamwork skills whilst learning a very complex law course.

Course module review - The Psychology of Will, 11/03/2017

The Psychology of Will
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

The psychology of will combines psychological and philosophical concepts that makes you question what you all ready know. It requires concentration from the minute you walk in the room but at the end of the seminar you are more than happy you survived through it. Even though it may be more philosophical that you first thought, neuroscience has an important role. I am enjoying the module and cannot wait to see where it ends up!

Clean Technology I: Energy & Environment
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

This is an optional module that i choose for my degree since i am interested on finding alternative energy source for the future. Overall although it is a relatively short module, a lot had been taught and does help me understand the flaws in current technology on how renewable energy resources had been used, why they are usen in this way and that sonetimes politics are important to try and sell out one's ideas. The exams are not as hard as the optional modules but does require one to think out of the box.

Course module review - Advanced Financial Reporting, 24/05/2016

Advanced Financial Reporting
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The module consists of lectures and seminars that give you a great insight into financial reporting. The module is kept up to date with recent information and topis to debate. The lecturers are really helpful and are very willing to help you between lecture and seminars and are more than happy to arrange a mutually convenient time to see them.
