    Hey!

    I'm really enjoying my course at the moment overall but there are a couple of modules which I absolutely resent: a maths for economists module which is a complete whore and a course in propositional and predicate logic.

    I'm finding myself wishing away the next few months so that I can focus on my semester 2 modules which are electives and look brilliant.

    Anyone else in this situation?

    I don't hate any modules on my course specifically, but there are a few in the past three years that I've lost motivation for. Notably, post-production in second year (late nights on Mondays with a lecturer whose style of teaching I really disliked), and video production throughout the three years, which, though I like to produce films, takes away time from things I'd rather be focusing on as it's very time-demanding.
    I love my course and the education it gives me, but the stress can temporarily destroy parts.

    Hell yes lol, and I have to study them all year and one of them has to be taken to the second year but I just grin and bear it...I think everyone finds this anyway, from Year 7 upwards :p:

    I've done three different degrees at different times in my life - and this is just part of it. But there are also great modules where you learn really useful stuff or just plain enjoy them. Take the rough with the smooth, coz the big bad world of work is just the same.

    To the people who hate most of their modules, can I ask why you took the degree?

    Off topic but if you decide to change course do you have to pay full tuition fees or can you get loans and grants etc again?

    I hated my literally all of my first year modules. I like all of my second year stuff though, apart from a day before an assignment needs to be handed in!

    I enjoyed Tort and Property, and despised everything else. So I dropped out.

    Why not apply - one of my ex-students started Computer forensics at Stoke with only moderate A2 results and is absolutely loving it.

    There's at least one module I hate in each semester (fossils, sedimentology, geology & society, depositional processes & environments), and the practical nature of over half my modules from until September 2010 is ridiculously dull and uninspiring (geological mapping looks more like busy-work than something interesting, and I'm not quite sure how my sanity has managed to stay intact having sketched and 'described' features of fossils and rocks for 6 weeks). What can you do though, really - my course isn't difficult or demanding at all so sticking it out seems appropriate right now.

    i'm really glad i decided to do history, and i'm loving the stuff i'm learning, but yeah, there are one or two modules which I'm not enjoying as much as the others. Also, I've got sooooooooooo much reading to do - I knew I'd have to read a fair bit when I applied to do history, but I never realised I'd have to do this much!!! While my housemates drink and have fun, I'm stuck in my room trying to finish 40 pages for a single seminar for one module!!!
