HPS class 2016

Top lecturers from around the world are flown into Murcia to teach at UCAM, which in theory is great. However, in practice can lead to many scheduling problems.
If it wasn't for the assistant director the course would be a lost cause altogether. She organises everything; from organising classes, scheduling lecturers flying into UCAM, teaching parts of the course, and being the main point of contact for students. But as great as she is, she can't understandably, can't do everything, and needs help.
As for the actual course director, what he actually did or contributed to the course is anyone's guess. He's a thoroughly unnecessary part of the program and his salary would be better spent elsewhere.
The course content is good, but can feel rushed at times, due to the time restraints of the lecturers stays in UCAM.
Areas for improvement include:
Olympic weightlifting classes, at present there are none at all.
Regarding the S&C for the elderly module, although a somewhat interesting topic, does not warrant an entire module. The time could be better spent elsewhere.
Throughout the whole year, for any projects or assignments we worked on that required statistical analysis, we used SPSS (and were encouraged to do so by the lecturers). Why then, for the statistics module we had towards the end of the year, would they try to teach us an entirely different and difficult program, from scratch?? Would it not make more sense to teach us SPSS , so we would become more proficient in using that??

UCAM experience

It was a nice experience. The level of the classes was very good, with some exceptions. The course lacks organisation, lots of things as assignments and exams date should be better defined previously.
