History side of the course is great! First year gives you an overview of a huge amount of historical eras which leads to more specialism in second and third years. French started out very basic in an effort to make sure everyone was up to the same standard. Oral lessons were pretty underwhelming and class size prevented lots of actual discussion so that could be an area to improve upon, however the two hour grammar lessons were very helpful! All tutors are lovely.
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.
