The course is very exciting and up-to-date. International relations especially is a low contact hour course - 1 or less hours a week for tutorials but the rest of the time is good for doing the reading.

I cannot really say anything about for the value for money, since I do not pay for the tuition fees. Teaching quality, especially in intermediate microeconomics is comme ci, comme ca as one would say. Hopefully, the job prospects are good.

Student Review: 1 /5

History and International Relations, MA Hons

By Kmichael On 26th September 18

You'll be bored out of your mind. The University has pretty much given-up on teaching. You'll have 6-8 hours of classes a WEEK and will, basically, have to teach yourself the whole course (especially if you study humanities or social sciences). However, the exams are so utterly basic that you would have to be an utter idiot to fail. Since uni is so easy and everyone pretty much graduates with a First or a 2.1, you'll be left with tons of free time to get drunk and to go out on a regular basis. It's only a pity that Aberdeen's nightlife is quite trashy and decadent. You'll get bored of it very quickly as well.

Student Review: 4 /5

French and International Relations, MA Hons

By member846639 On 10th March 20

French and IR is interesting. I genuinely can’t complain about the Politics and IR staff (you have to do both in 1st and 2nd year), they make the course straightforward and guide you in the right direction. They are, for the most part, fair markers and tutors are happy to help you. French on the other hand is a tricky one. It’s pretty much expected that you take both the language and the culture course. There is a lot of coursework and tests, and they are incredibly harsh markers. It’s nothing like French at school (if you’re from Scotland at least). It’s also a small course so your tutors will likely get to know you and expect a lot from you which can be intimidating but it’s also a more personal learning experience in that sense as there isn’t that anonymity of a large cohort. Job prospects definitely depend on the course but I don’t think that’s any reflection on the university - most people know what they’re getting themselves in for when they choose.

With how everything has played out I definitely do not think we got our money’s worth. As an international students 15k a year is a lot and we need to be refunded. What I do outmost admire about my university is the services. I’ve never been able to get help the way that Aberdeen has given. AUSA really care about the quality of life of its students and I absolutely respect

If you’re interested in politics and law, strategic studies and international law is your best option.
