In retrospect, I would not choose Edinburgh to study English Literature. The texts are stuffy and outdated. Out of the whole world of literature, I honestly think they managed to pull out the most dull, cumbersome texts possible. Of course, not all are so boring, but the majority certainly are. They do not value creative and lively thinking, but rather overly-mechanical ways of approaching texts. The feedback on essays can be hit or miss. The lectures are good, but can be overly dense.
Daft degree to take if you want a job at the end of it! The lecturers seem to think that the status and prestige of the uni will carry them through so they don't really need to put much effort in. And God help you if you don't understand something!
