It's fine, Economic department and Politics and Philosophy department have no communication. Feels like 2 different degrees instead of one.

Really exciting course. Lots of scope to personalise to your interest. Very enlightening to new ideas and concepts. Great for those who have never studied either discipline before - I didn’t do economics before university and I’ve found it really easy to follow.

Lots of varied optional modules and useful compulsory ones, plenty of scope for working however you find best. Contact hours from 6-15 pw depending on term and modules taken.

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.

By member128140 On 28th April 15

Brilliant. If I wasn't an independent student it would be very difficult. This course takes time and dedication, and the Law School will not let a student cut corners. This makes for brilliant training, and the law society has many events that develop legal skills (mooting competition, negotiation competition, and Lawyers Aware) and these are held every year with training. Fantastic course, brilliant resources.
