In line with Scottish Government guidance, teaching and assessment for the majority of the students will remain online only for the remainder of this semester. There will be a small number of exceptions to the policy of online-only teaching and assessment.
Content and themes are highly unique, very distinct and profound. Course delivery is also timely and thoughtful, It's not something you would commonly see in most university courses because of how niche / alternative it seems. I took a course on Nature and the Occult in the Late Middle Ages and it was magnificent! Teaching quality is very high where the professor is knowledgeable and are skilled at piquing students' interest and thinking through asking effective questions. There are a lot of direct interactions in the classroom and moderate group work to facilitate collaboration.
St Mary's is great - such a lovely community of people where staff respect the students and vice versa. Amazing conversations had inside and outside of the classroom.
Art History department has a selection of staff with amazing knowledge, but there is not much of a community feel and there seems to be quite a distance between staff and students. Staff aren't always very approachable.
