The course is amazing with competent and helpful lecturers. The variety of modules is good, so you can find something you'll enjoy.

Having a personal tutor who doesn't respond is, in all honesty, not the best. Having a lecturer whose voice and lecture content puts me to sleep (even with caffiene) is also not fabulous. Oh, and the fact that I got the exact same feedback as someone else was also rather s***. (possibly a computing error??) But other than those two lecturers the course is pretty great.

I love my degree, the department is friendly and helpful. The content is challenging and interesting once you get past first year.

Aber's English department is one of the top in the world. Despite this, I wish I had done a different degree for the sake of employability. There is little to no guidance about writing professionally. That said, my writing skills have vastly improved over the last 2 1/2 years, as have my critical thinking and research skills. The department can sometimes be disorganised, but some changes have been made in the past year which have improved things. The lecturers are usually passionate about their subject, but sometimes focus a bit too much on their pet topics. Although my personal tutor switched this year, both were available when needed, and quick to respond to emails. Overall, I would recommend the department, but don't make my mistake and go in expecting career guidance.

The teaching quality is good, although for the money more contact hours would have been nice. Same with my personal tutor. The course is really interesting, and they give a lot of support on looking for jobs/ post grad study.

Might as well have paid myself the £9,000 a year for all the contact hours we get.
