Student reviews

I think the Y031 Arts and languages module is very interesting because there is a lot to learn I didn't cover at school.

I loved learning about William Blake's Tyger Poem, and Grace Nichols The Fat Black Woman's poem I loved reading them a lot.

I didn't like the Wilfred Owen Poem it was so sad for me but he is a clever poet. It was a long module for me to study but I did enjoy it and it wasn't too hard.

The EMA was hard to study but in the End, I passed this module.

Course starting: January 2015

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 Y031. The survey was carried out in 2017.

111 students (a response rate of 29.1%) 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.

Faculty comment: "The module team is very pleased with the high levels of satisfaction expressed by Y031 respondents, with the vast majority (95.4%) stating that they were satisfied with the module's quality. Many students commented very enthusiastically on the diversity of the study materials: an impressive 97.3% were satisfied with the quality of the module materials overall. However, a number of students continue to have reservations about online working, with requests for books to continue to be available for all blocks, and issues raised by offender learners. The majority of negative comments were to do with this matter.
