Philosophy/Politics, MA Hons

By member739824 On 20th June 19

I utterly disagree and would encourage prospective students to look elsewhere. Last year students missed out on graduation and even degrees due to the university’s appalling handling of the strikes and subsequent non reply to complaints and refusal to reschedule lessons and deliver them. This then escalated to bullying and harassment of some students for fees to be paid despite the students not having had lessons delivered for a portion of semester two. There is also an extreme lack of support for students at this university from any student association. Last year futures were put in the balance or even ruined by University of Glasgow. The exact opposite one would expect from a supposed world ranking university. Please see my blog for further details. This is in addition to appalling working conditions and modules being changed at the last minute so you don’t actually get to study what you signed up for or were promised. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/power-balance-between-students-un

As said, the lecturers and the content is for the most part of it up to the mark. However the industrial action during Covid is a bad combination.

I explained my take on these issues earlier. The uni administration has to take care of the strike situation which works awfully to the detriment of students. It is very unfair that the students have to pay the price. The way the uni administration is treating us very unfair and their handling of the problem is completely unjust. Cohorts for PGT level of study is too large, which is explained by the need for money due to some construction projects.

The course (I can't find it in your choice, but it named Global economy)sounds like a business major, but it is from the social and political sessions. I would say it is worthwhile to have meaningful discussions with teachers.

Personal tutors been ill but had someone step in who’s pretty good. Politics is a bit dull but I’ve heard in first year it can be when learning key concepts in order to delve into to delve into more interesting topics
