What students say about plant science
Doing a science-based course on my campus means that I actually do have a lot of lecture time. The lectures are very easy to talk to no matter what the problem is, and very understanding. Facilities are excellent, as there are specific buildings for my course, and it has also allowed me to explore some of the other campuses at the University. Coursework and exams have been fairly equal, and I have had the opportunity to choose modules that I want and fine tune my degree to create the most enjoyable course that I want to do.2nd year, University of Nottingham
There is enough of a balance of teaching and private time to balance your life if you use it correctly, the same as if you spend enough time on the challenging parts of a course, revision will be easier. Doing assignments as soon as they're set releases a lot of stress and the knowledge is fresh.1st year, University of Nottingham
