Scores and comments

Module 16204 Tenerife I

Student Comments

“The field trip for this was really good and allowed me to get a real idea of the features of the island“

“The unique learning environment was refreshing & stimulating”

“This was a very organized module but it was contained too much work … it would have been nice to have finished before 10pm one night!“

“Although hard work throughout, the field excursion was enjoyable and educational. The lecture course prepared you well for the field trip …”

“Excellent module with a wide spread of interesting subjects. Amazing field”

“Tenerife was really enjoyable - perhaps too much work in Tenerife, but this was compensated for less on return.

“The computer test I thought could have actually been made into a proper exam as the answers required were extremely hard”

Success?
