Student reviews

This was an interesting course, but I have only one complaint and that was not enough one to one tutorials, The online tutorials were OK but meeting other students as well as the tutor can not be replaced.

Please note

Each of the views expressed above is an individual's very particular response, largely unedited, and should be viewed with that in mind. Since modules are subject to regular updating, some of the issues identified may have already been addressed. In some instances the faculty may have provided a response to a comment. If you have a query about a particular module, please contact your Regional Centre.


Module satisfaction survey

The figures below are taken from a survey of students who sat the exam/completed the end-of-module assessment for the October 2016 presentation of A223. The survey was carried out in 2017.

206 students (a response rate of 38.6%) responded to the survey covering what they thought of 10 aspects of the module.

Please note that if the percentage of students who responded to this module survey is below 30% and/or the number of responses is below 23 it means that only a small proportion of students provided feedback and their views as shown here may not be fully representative of all students who studied the module.

See this page for the full text of questions and more information about the survey.

Faculty comment: "As a new module in its first presentation, we are delighted that the majority of respondents were satisfied with the teaching materials and would recommend the module to others. We were also pleased to read the individual student survey comments, revealing how interesting, engaging and well-integrated many found the module. Overall, it is particularly gratifying to see that the majority of respondents had a good study experience and highly rated the quality of the module. The module team have noted the full range of survey feedback and will use that to inform future presentations."
