I enjoyed my first year as an English student so much. The lecturers and seminar tutors helped so much and made the content very interesting to learn.

Course was hard work, but so interesting. You have to make sure you are fully engaged in seminars and lectures as there is so much to get through, so make sure you don't fall behind! Make sure you are in contact with your tutors or personal tutors for help. I would recommend using the library a lot, for the amount of reading ahead of you! Make sure you aren't rushing to get to the end of a novel and really find time to balance your work load. It's a great course with such a variation of literature to explore, but you can't get complacent despite the lack of contact hours, you will need all the time you have got to do seminar work and reading.

Great tutors, generally good content, good support system, would have liked more choice in selecting modules in my first and second years. Overall an enjoyable and, for the most part, valuable, experience.

During my dissertation in particular, my tutor was great - he always answered my questions promptly and effectively, even outside normal office hours - support was great. Lecturers and seminar tutors are enthusiastic and visibly passionate. Great teaching quality.

Really think about if you’re the right person for this course before you enter the university of leicester. You’re in twice a week at best, given literally 0 guidance about essay planning and marking criteria, you’re sat in a lecture about renaissance art thinking wow I love books but I’m not sure this is strictly relevant. In my experience this course is great if you want to get drunk on a Monday afternoon or you want a student loan to spend on nandoes but not so great if you like English/ have any interest in learning. The course ease you in with Shakespeare and fiction and smacks you with old English/Chaucer for the next two years after that. As for value for money you’d be better off open spark notes and saving 9 grand than paying for lazy teaching and a complete lack of pastoral support. As for my personal tutor, your guess is as good as mine because I never even met the guy. Leicester is great for mosh Friday and scientific discoveries but if English is your passion- don’t go

Value for money is impacted by lecturer strikes. Would say it is a little much for 6-15 contact hours a week. But the course is good, and tutors great/very helpful. The personal tutor system is deeply flawed and completely useless. I have had a different tutor every year sometimes every term, and have never seen them/heard from them more than once.

Honestly, I would have liked to go deeper into some many topics such as analysing Old/Middle English texts (History of the English Language), Phonetics and Phonology, more widely variety of authors of Restoration literature (From Satire to Sensibility Literature), etc.
