6 Politics reviews at University of Bath
Politics and International Relations, BSc Hons
Absolutely no value for money - my lecturers went on strike for most of my final term at Bath and had no regard whatsoever for the students left behind. The money was not refunded it was put in a fund for student hardship - how about don't charge your students for education they are not receiving in the first place. Teachers were total bureaucrats and all very like minded politically - I'm quite a centrist politically but if you didn't write your essays with socialist sympathy you wouldn't stand a chance of achieveing a half decent grade. Only met my personal tutor once and it was my 2nd day out of three years. Course content was quite interesting - but that was before the lecturers got involved. Job prospects are good for me but had absolutely nothing to do with bath or my course. They convince you that if you study politics then you have to do something in politics - how narrow minded.
Spanish and Politics, BA Hons
Seriously meh course. I loved the Spanish side of it and really enjoyed how we learnt the language, grammar lessons a bit duff and let's not even go there about the Spanish politics lessons.... taught all in Spanish at 9am in a pitch black lecture room, read off a power point... Politics lessons better but found them very dull which is a massive shame because I loved A level and politics in general. Lessons more theoretical rather than about current affairs. Left the uni due to course and uni itself
Politics with Economics, BSc Hons
Although the units by themselves are very interesting and the coursework topics lead to intriguing reading, the teaching sometimes fails to meet the expectations of an undergraduate student.
