This is the worst class I've taken at NUI Galway. It concerns four lecturers: Dr. John Kelly, Dr. Philip Welsby, Dr Maura Grealy and Dr. Eilís Dowd. I learned practically nothing useful and this class is in my major. They can't teach. Their lessons are all over the place. They said that this class requires no prior knowledge, yet they go through the material like we already know it. Some of the stuff they talk about is stuff that I've learned and forgotten in other classes, yet just a horrible teacher. Dr. Eilís Dowd was terrible. She was boring and unless you wrote down literally every word she said you could not do well on the quizzes. Dr Maura Grealy would get very short with students who tried to question her opinions and you got marked off if your opinions did not match hers. A horrible teacher who can't make sense out of any of it. She is all over the place in her lecture and is very disorganized. Dr. John Kelly makes mistakes in class and corrects them during the next class. He can also be rude as might be expected from a british person. Dr. Philip Welsby is boring and unhelpful and everyone has a very hard time trying to stay awake. If you are unfortunate enough to get him, switch! His tests are on everything that he does not lecture on and you have a hard time learning anything and it just hurts your GPA.
They all teach off of powerpoints that you waste tons of paper printing off the internet and then their tests are nothing like the powerpoints but just way confusing. Don't take Pharmacology or Toxicology at NUIG or Athlone Institute of Technology! It is like a nightmare come true; their tests are very hard and their grading is very hard.
