Student reviews

I found the module a lot more interesting than I thought I would. Subjects like poetry, rap and graffiti were things I had no knowledge of, and I was apprehensive of them. But the way they were used in the context of the learning goals was brilliant. From being dubious about having the ability to understand and more importantly express views about these subjects, I couldn't believe how many views I had and how I was able to articulate these views. You are started off gently in your learning, and before you know it, you're writing complicated tutor-marked assignments and using referencing. It is the best foundation for further learning. The module is pacey, especially towards the end, but if you plan, and stick to your study plan as much as possible, it's doable. And the sense of achievement at the end is worth it.
