I am thoroughly enjoying my degree; there is a lot of variety in learning methods, including lecturers, occasional seminars, reading, practicals (both in the laboratory and on computers) and field trips. I have had many amazing opportunities to travel, both directly and indirectly through the university (including to Guyana, the Bahamas and Australia). There are loads of modules to chose between in both second and final year, covering many different fields of biology and biochemistry, with a lot of flexibility in selections (modules can also be taken from other colleges and courses). However, no choice is given in first year and everyone must take the core modules. Although this gives a broader view of biology in general, it forces students to take modules they may not enjoy, and are unlikely to remember many details from after the exams.Assessments are straightforward; most modules have course assessment tests and a piece of coursework (usually a lab write-up) during the term, and a 60% exam during exam week. In first year, the exam is multiple choice, but is an hour long essay exam in 2nd and final years.I have very few complaints about my degree!
