Compared to most other non-standard courses, there is more contact time and fewer weeks holiday, but it is training for a professional qualification, so 7 weeks holiday per year is still generous albeit inflexible. I enjoy the combination of essays and exams, placements, clinical skills, seminars and lectures. Each term has several different elements to it so it is a varied course. It is good to learn from all fields/branches of nursing, while still having the benefits of specialist classes throughout the 3years of the course.×

I’ve really enjoyed the course so far, but I think it’s important to be open minded about what the tutors teach you and use it, rather than rejecting it like I did... the course is well structured, allowing me to work on one film at a time, alongside studying for my essay module. Each module is well structured also, allowing different and varied teaching throughout the module to reflect the production process meaning there are intensive workshop during the pre-production part of the module, and then tutorials during production and post-production. The essay module is different, running throughout the year, meaning there is just one lecture/seminar a week, and the tutor is really good! Each film module is useful in teaching you different ways of approaching filmmaking, and I have found that these have really helped me progress and make better films. The teaching staff are very knowledgeable in what they do, and all have industry experience which is good to learn from, even if at times the staff can be a little dull... the feedback on assessments is always of good quality, which has allowed me to improve upon my work, although the turnaround time from giving in work to getting feedback is a little too long in my opinion, but isn’t within the university policy. One of my favourite aspects of the course is the access to lots of specialist filmmaking equipment, and access to technicians five days a week who can help with equipment, software and just are there to ask any questions.×

I get a bursary through the Compact Scheme at uni, a scheme which gives support to first generations into uni, care leavers, low income students mature students etc etc. I heard about the scheme on an open day and immediately applied to the scheme. This (as far as I can remember) was all I needed to do to apply to the busary, which I was later rewarded in the first year. After reaching a certain grade arbor the ends of the first year, I was then eligible to continue the busary, which was automatically sorted out by the scheme and continued.×

Studying my course at University is wonderful. The lecturers are incredibly supportive, informative and approachable. The course structure and what we are taught isn't easy but the way it's run and the way lecturers teach makes it easy. Additionally, there is a wide range of support system academically, Mentally etc. for anyone needing extra help too. Feedback is great and most of the times we aren't taught in massive groups. We have a lot of workshops compared to just being in a massive lecture theater and listening to a lecture which helps to a lot in getting aquinted to lecturers and understand what we are taught better×
