It’s a good, interesting course but teaching hours are dismal for the 9+K you pay per year.

History and Philosophy, BA Hons

By member532922 On 19th July 18

On this course, I had amazing lecturers in both departments! They were always willing to answer questions in lectures and outside, in their office hours. Tutors would spend time with you, to help you understand your work if you came to their office hours and overall, I found the staff to be very helpful, answering emails promptly. Teaching quality was good, however, sometimes I feel that more could be put online to help you understand the topic, in the form of notes. However, there is always something there to help you, like recordings of lectures. I just find that notes help me more. Particularly, this year, the course didn't seem like value for money as we were still paying money to the university during strikes, which lasted a month or so.

History, Philosophy and Politics, BA Hons

By New Student On 23rd January 18

It does often feel like I am paying £9,250/year for a Library membership and a few powerpoints each week. An increase in contact hours would be brilliant, if only to just double the seminar time; as it stands, seminars are so time stretched that there is often not enough time to actually go through and talk about everything that needs discussing with a member of staff present. The teaching is generally very good; the lecturers are engaging and interested in their subject areas and clearly take their role seriously; it's not just a job to support their research. That said, we do have many highly intelligent lecturers including the one and only Chris Macleod, expert on JS Mill. The courses are generally well constructed, with the notable exception of HIST100 (the Introduction to History). It does get a lot better in later years however. Generally speaking, there is a wide variety of interesting subjects that one can pursue in your quest for knowledge, whatever your interests.
