Ancient History and Archaeology, BA Hons

By On 4th November 15

I know the names of all my lecturers and you find by the end of first year that you are relatively friendly with them all. The teaching quality is great and the warmth toward students is something I feel you wouldn't get everywhere

The politics aspect of the course was exciting and interesting. History lectures were often dull and there wasn't enough topic choices.

History and Politics, BA Hons

By On 18th July 16

I only averaged around 9 contact hours per week, though this is apparently common for the course. All lecturers and staff were incredibly knowledgeable about their subject and a wide range of courses were offered. The Politics department also arranged for a number of interesting guest lecturers and speakers throughout the year, ranging from diplomats to terrorism experts.

History, BA Hons

By On 2nd April 19

On the whole the course is perfect for me. All the areas listed above are to an exceptional standard- it would be nice to see a bit more info on specific employability but we have begun to be dripfed info on this gradually throughout the year. My personal tutor has been very supportive and has been great this year. The content again is very enthralling and keeps me deeply interested

History, BA Hons

By On 17th December 16

History at Leicester has been a great experience so far. Although teaching and contact with tutors is very minimal they are always there when needed which is very beneficial. The range of course content has also been very good allowing you to get a taste of a wide range of historical period before becoming more specialised.

Ancient History and History, BA Hons

By On 12th January 18

I graduated with a 1st class degree this July and have gone on to do a MA. Honestly while the teaching is good for some subjects, you'll be in good hands if you like Late Antiquity, it's not worth the money. I essentially paid 27k for a library. I only had 5 hours contact time in my final year. The schools (this is a joint degree) also do not communicate. In my first year I had to attend every 'intro to the uni' session twice. This problem only got worse, with little knowledge of what we were doing in other lectures gaps were created and opportunities for better learning missed. Sometimes we were expected to know information from modules we did not take as AHH students. E.g. Ancient History and History students did not take 'Percieving the Past' however some HS lecturers would reference this module during teaching, leaving us confused. Worst of all this issue seems to be down to a petty rivalry between the schools. This really soured my experience of doing my degree.

History of Art, BA Hons

Personal tutor is fantastic. Teaching generally good. Could maybe do with a few more contact hours each week and maybe have guest lecturers. Italy trip in second year is fantastic! Best time of my life and great teaching. Support is always there if you aks for it during essays and dissertations. Lessons are generally interesting and well structured.
