English and Drama, BA Hons

By member517858 On 5th November 15

I think they need to get more organised when finding an equal divide between English and Drama. However, all the lecturers are funny and upbeat, the seminar leaders are all very friendly and incredibly passionate about the subject and there's a great divide between practical drama and theoretical drama. Sometimes it feels like I'm in a sociology or Politics lecture because the lecturers find a way to connect those subjects with drama which is fascinating. Although the uni is small and so the number of students are too, you still learn an awful lot from your peers. And join the shakespeare society... it's brilliant!!

I'm having a great time on the American lit course- the group is very small, and the teaching is friendly, relaxed, and interesting. I have found some of the English course less exciting, but as you can choose your courses later on, I am having a better time.

It's really interesting and fun. All the students I have met at this uni have been incredible! The exam, however, does not get explained a lot and it can get confusing. Overall the content is spread out and great!

Personal tutors were brilliant. Very helpful with any struggles. Contact hours are good as it means you have so much time to do all the prep for seminars such as reading and rehearsals. Definitely get to a show bi weekly it'll make all the difference. Course tutors can be difficult but you learn to understand the way they teach. Anne Varty we love you

Our English lectures make extremely little sense and I'm pretty sure the majority of the lecturers are pulling this stuff out of their a**e as they talk. Classics lecturers however are fantastic.
