This course was very interesting! It covered a lot of content, but it was all really engaging. Each lecture was relatively self contained and focused on a different disease/microbe. The variety of lecturers and content was extremely interesting, and made lectures very fun to attend. The assignments during the semester were very chill, easy to get good marks on, however the final exam was pretty terrible. It involves 8 long response question of 25 marks each and makes up 55% of your final grade. I don't think the method used assesses knowledge, understanding, or ability to apply what was taught particularly well. If you don't take exams well, carefully consider if you want to do this course.
Took this course and I found it interesting. Course content was straight forward, as said on the eCP, and so was the exam. Downside was that the course kept me very busy whilst trying to work on the assignments from other courses too - every three week in PBL session we had to discuss a given topic, do a group presentation on an assigned sub-topic, and write a 500 word summary about the topic presented.
