Speech bubble iconThe level of my supervision is in a class of its own! I enjoy the professional way with which it is conducted. My thoughts and contributions are valued and I am encouraged to be an independent thinker.

Speech bubble iconIt has been very convenient as the workshops are at weekends, so no need for time off work.

The dozen or so students in our group have gelled together and are from similar working backgrounds but have varying experiences and specialities.

The speakers have been informative and interesting, whilst the course leaders are really supportive and approachable. In addition we have the advantage of the internet which I never had on any other course. Not only for emailing assignment, for student interaction, and for immediate feed back, but also for communication and back up from course leaders and supervisors.

The course Salford offered was incredibly flexible, allowing me to study and work in conjunction. Over the duration of my Study, I felt as though there was a very good support network for the distance learner, from all lecturers and technical support staff, almost all e-mails were replied to within 24hrs, which is very comforting for somebody located away from the central campus.

Speech bubble iconI am currently undertaking the project work in the Multi-discipline module - the Macclesfield Cricket Club project. I have never been so committed and excited by a module as I have by this project. The fact that all the students have a chance to create a new facility which will actually be built is an exciting prospect. I believe that the main reason why this module is so engrossing is because it is well structured yet challenging and relevant to the students. Not only have the School of the Built Environment teaching staff spent a lot of time structuring the module but they are also more than willing to help the students whenever they can. They endeavour to push our abilities as individuals and as a group further, thus, ever improving our design.

I believe that these 'live' projects are beneficial to everyone concerned and that they greatly enhance student learning...
