My lectures are really fun, entertaining, and interactive, and we do a lot of activities in the class itself. Since our student group is really small, the lecturer-to-student ratio is good.
I have a great relationship with my Director of Studies. She knows us all well and she knows our strengths. She’s my supervisor for my dissertation as well, so it’s helpful that my project aligns with her area of study.
Modules with real-world applications
There are different kinds of modules which focus on different aspects of the coursework. For example, we have an entrepreneurship module which focuses on the business aspect of a product that we have designed.
Another module is very UX-design specific and for that my group have designed a persuasive solution product which is supposed to make the user rely less on social media and be more productive.
Developing transferable skills
The units I’ve studied here focus a lot on teamwork to help students go into the industry after the course. This is useful as employers look for teamwork experience on your CV.
It teaches us transferable skills as well, like presentation skills and time management, which you’ll require all throughout your professional life.
Asking for help and helping others
If you’re working in a group, you can ask each other for help and share what you’re planning for your coursework. Of course, if you have any doubts, you can always reach out to the lecturers.
Everybody is very approachable here. I don’t remember finding anybody on my course who wasn’t supportive when I asked for help, so I make sure to be the same when people approach me too.
