The actual amount of teaching time I had was a lot less than I was expecting and varied each week, sometimes we had 16 hours of teaching time a week and sometimes we had 2 hours, it depended on how much independent work we had to do at that time and what stage we were at in the course. We mainly had lectures, given by teaching members of our course and also guest lecturers, whicmade it very interesting as you could see things from different points of view.
The actual course content I found very interesting and I feel like I learnt a lot which will help me in my future career. We also learnt a varied amount of content, for example we looked at the inter professional relationship side of our future career as well as the biological side, the research side and the practical side. I found the course to be moderately challenging, a lot of work has to be put in if you want to achieve well, however there is lots of support so you can always get the help you want. We were assessed in a variety of ways, including exams, reports, essays and even a leaflet. We always receive detailed feedback from our tutors on work that we have handed in telling us how to improve but also what we did well.
