F****** Hard!! Unfortunately because of the fact it's a joint honors between Economics, and Accounting & Finance, the harder modules from each course are selected and put together! Having said that the job prospects are absolutely phenomenal. Through speaking to various employers they felt my degree fitted most graduate and placement roles they were offering due to the fact it was quite versatile and relevant. Another bonus is that you can choose most of your modules, i personally prefer economics so I selected more economics modules than accounting and finance... Would recommend!
The course is very interesting and the lecturers are good at keeping you engaged. The course is accredited by the BPS so it gives you the credentials to study further, or work in psychology in the future.
There are some excelent lecturers teaching the course, who do care about their students. They cover a great deal of topic in each lecture and alot of the stuff is very interesting. If you do not understand they do their best to help you.
The office hours can be very short though
Philosophy was such an interesting subject to study. However as each year commenced the modules on offer decreased and many were left with random subjects that they were not interested in studying but had no choice to take. I did have so very intelligent lecturers that had a vat knowledge of the subject. However, each lecturer had a different ooonion on how best to write an philosophy essay. We all felt as though we had to start again with each module. Learning how to write in order to get a good grade. They expected us to learn way too much. It was so in depth that I don’t think most people even bothered to do the reading. This impacted our seminars because barley anyone knew what to talk about. Seminars were not very effective at all. Many would just sit in silence and barely participate. This is. It good enough at degree level. Surely everyone should be joining in to learn more and have the drive to read over and above what is expected of us.
