They let me switch from Psychology to English and Philosophy 2 months in. I've been doing my best with what I've found online but have not been offered much help or guidance for catching up, even when I've asked various people multiple times. The content however is amazing! Very vast, modern and stimulating, so this alone inspires me to carry on. I really enjoy the lectures too, so much more than I did for psychology.
English is a bore. There must be about over 20 lecturers, half of which don't ever know what they're talking about. I get exhausted within the first five minutes, and seminars are pointless. The content is amazingly boring. I loved English, but the course has made me want to quit. Philosophy is far better. There is a lot more substance. Seminars are just as pointless and the content could be made more interesting. Lecturers are also much better. Overall, the bad rating is more in regards to the English side of it. Just a shame that you can't do philosophy as a whole degree.
I am loving the mix of subjects i am doing and, although the work is weighty, it is well supported and supplied for with n online system to help when i get stuck. The lectures are often interesting and engaging, with good seminars to further indepth discuss what we are learning. Wholly an enjoyable experience.
