13 Physics & astronomy reviews at Durham University


Student Review: 2 /5

Physics, BSc Hons

By member858032 On 17th May 21

The pandemic caused my learning, motivation, physical and mental health to dwindle. I think the department did their best. They regularly sought out feedback from us, and organised as many socially distant group activities as they could, but even so, I cannot disguise that this year has been a negative experience on the whole; I am sure I am not alone in feeling this way, neither in Durham, nor in the country. In fact, it wouldn’t be fair to say this is exclusively a Durham issue: it is definitely a country-wide one.

I believe that ICC, Durham is an ideal place — with the right expertise, guidance, resource and environment — for me to pursue PhD research.

No tutor. Mumbling lectures who didn't answer questions. I still don't know what my project was.

Natural Sciences, MSci Hons

By member1123848 On 30th August 16

I studied chemistry and biology. The chemistry department was really well organised and I found the tutorials really useful and the labs really interesting, although some of the lecturers weren't great so I really struggled with some of the course content. The biology department wasn't so well organised but I really enjoyed the content and most the lecturers were pretty good. I didn't find the tutorials particularly useful but some of the labs were really fun.

Personal tutor? Do some universities other than Oxbridge get that? I get an academic advisor but they don't actually help with the course. Some lectures are rubbish, some are amazing. Pretty standard. It's easy to provide feedback to the department and they do listen!
