Just an all round bad experience, if you can go to any other university I highly recommend you do so, the lecturers don't seem to care about the subjects, the campus is dull and uninspiring and there is a overwhelming feeling that most students are disappointed but are just accepting their position rather than enjoying their experience.
Good course to be studying prospects wise but course itself seems to be a bit hit and miss. French could do with getting a few new modules, particularly one in modern politics, as it seems that even in third year there isn't much to choose from. The quality of teaching on this side however has been fairly consistent.
Economics ranges from extremely engaging to absolutely tedious depending on teacher and subject. There have been a few assistants with poor grasp of English which have made seminars more difficult and teaching poor. There have been some good modules as well however, particularly Social Policy and Economic Analysis in second year.
Course content is good, not much maths which is reason I chose the BA, quality of teaching is average over all modules some it’s really good some it’s not great but really depends on preference of teaching style. Job prospects are very good, another reason why I chose economics. Content is good lots of choice.
I love my subject, course material and lecturer. Of course the fees could be lower but that just means I have to work my hardest in order to achieve the degree classification that best matches my academic ability.
