Student reviews

I loved this module - it was so interesting and well laid out. I found the workload quite intense; however, I didn't mind that aspect due to the module's content. My tutor was changed late on; however, they continuously provided me with feedback and were super helpful and responsive.

Great module but a lot to keep on top off. This module looks at various different topics that affect mental health. For each topic, it initially goes into the psychology of that topic and then delves into the biology of it. I really enjoyed the biology sections but did find the psychology part less interesting but in saying that it all links in together. Tutor-marked assignments are very doable and assist in getting a good understanding of the topics covered. The end-of-module assessment has a fair amount of work, so time is needed to be given to it.
Overall, I enjoyed the module.
