English Literature, MA Hons

By On 13th November 19

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 The texts are stuffy and outdated.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.

German and English Literature, MA Hons

By On 5th July 15

Great course: my Lit lecturers were wonderful, so enthusiastic and funny, whilst my German teacher got me from no ability at all to a very advanced level of understanding. Can't wait for Year 2!

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!
