Great lecturer in John Maloney. Interesting lectures, interesting content.
But modules such as Economic Principles are terrible. The lecturer reads of the slide in an intelligible Greek accent. The tutorials consist of doing questions from the textbook in complete silence, something we could do in our own time.
Business school tutorials are also only once a fortnight, as a result of overcrowding. And the tutorial classes are too big - 20 people at least. So getting time to ask the tutors questions is nigh on impossible.
Politics modules are MUCH better.
Decent course. Lectures are recorded online and are mostly very interesting. Really flexible too as can pick any of the Politics modules. Could be more flexible on the history side. Haven’t met my personal tutor so can’t really comment on that but there hasn’t been much of a personal feel with the tutors or lecturers in my experience tbh.
So far so good, some tutorial leaders seem a bit uppity which makes it hard to have discussions, especially in politics which is so subjective, but overall im happy with the course content. I've have had some amazing lecturers too, shoutout Sarah Cooper in public policy, she made a course that i was dreading (bc boring) quite interesting. Have not had much contact with my personal tutor but I haven't felt the need either so it doesn't bother me. prepare for not too many contact hours but lots and lots and lots of reading.
