Positives: expanded on my knowledge of history and allowed me to develop certain skills.

Negatives: I felt like it took quite a long time to pay off and didn't generally really help me career wise

My advice to future students is: Really research if this course could be used to advance your future career or cater your subjects to a particular field. I studied mainly history and sociology and whilst I found it interesting as I did not want to be an academic it didn't really feel like it was aimed in a particular direction.

Positives: It’s so interactive, classes are small and personal. Everyone is so passionate and that really helps with learning

Negatives: Sometimes it’s a bit unorganised

My advice to future students is: Stay on top of your work. You don’t have to go to every lecture but you should catch up on it within a week or two or you’ll fall behind

Positives: - good clinical exposure
- helpful tutors, willing to go the extra mile and take the time to ensure we know what we need to know
- adequate assessments (not too much- the course is hard enough as is, but enough to know how good we are doing)

Negatives: - different timetables / holidays to peers in other degrees- makes it hard to spend time with them
- constantly changing timetable from week to week makes it extremely hard to have a part time job
- sometimes can get a bit too dry and theory based

My advice to future students is: - keep on top of work
- take whatever clinical exposure you can, and spend lots of time there- exposure is the best way to learn
- make friends
- ask questions always

The course is similar to what I have learnt in China Bachelor Degree. But some postgraduate is challenging for me like the ""Law"" part. Anyway, if you learn it carefully, it is not that difficult.

My advice to future students is: Its not so difficult that hard to pass, but for some people who comes from no-english speaking country should be more hardworking.

I majored in Telecommunications.

This course provides useful knowledge in future work. There are a lot of lab for student to help them understanding their knowledge better. The teachers are really helpful that anytime I asked questions, I always got the answer as soon as possible.

My advice to future students is: Must be good at math, this course need a lot of knowledge in Math field. Anyone who are not good at that part will easily fail the courses.

Huge value derived from the network of fellow students. This really adds value to the course content and provides diverse perspectives across multiple industries.

My advice to future students is: Take this course on whilst working in industry. Without daily practical application of topics it would be far less valuable
