20 Politics reviews at The University of Sheffield
History and Politics, BA Hons
Amazing course, few office hours a week between 5-8 hours a week generally, never speak to tutor, a lot of reading to do! On average 20-30 hours a week! Lots of essays, but on good content and is interesting
Economics and Politics, BA Hons
When you consider that it's £9000 a year we all know it's a rip off however I suppose you're paying for all the facilities that come with the University such as the brand new diamond building which reportedly cost £90 million or something ridiculous. Aside from that the quality of teaching is good but it depends on what lecturers you get however all of whom obviously know their subject back to front. Content in the course has been interesting despite the constant struggle as a result of the lack of communication between the two departments but I guess that's just what happens when you do a dual honours degree. You are given a personal tutor if you need them however I have not needed mine thus far. At the end of the day the point of going to Uni is to get a job at the end of it, and going to a very well respected Uni will boost your employability in the future.
International Relations and Politics, BA Hons
Great course, only 6, 50 minute teaching hours per week though so not really worth £9k. 22 weeks of lectures/seminars works out at about £82 per hour. Obviously, this doesn't include access to the excellent library facilities or include exams, essay marking time and personal tutor hours, etc. Point being, go to your lectures/seminars and make use of office hours, you're paying for them!
