Student reviews

The assignments in this module followed the same format each time. The advantage of this was that you are able to use the feedback to improve each assignment as you go along. The downside is that it feels a little repetitive (although you are putting it in the context of different theories each time).

I very much liked having the freedom of choice around the leaders I studied. I picked a really varied selection of people about whom I previously knew very little e.g. Karl Marx, Bono, Martha Stewart; this really brought the theory to life for me.

The contributions to online forums were graded but were not overly onerous.

I would definitely recommend this module if you are interested in exploring leadership from a range of different perspectives.
