Everything is great except for the Classical Political Thought tutor Mr Singh. Sorry Mr Singh I know you mean well, but you're so boring and unhelpful that I regularly want to jump out of the window of your seminars

Course is interesting but other than the history, understanding politics and classical political thought modules, the teaching is not worth £9,000.

Political Science, BA Hons

By Joseph Kassendick On 5th May 16

This course is by far superior to all other courses in which the main material is politics. In the first year, apart from the various introductions into fields of study, you receive a classical education in politics, from Plato to Aristotle, from Hobbes to Locke; this is what most unis miss out - they miss out on teaching their students political philosophy, which I believe, is the most interesting part of the course. However, be warned, you will be taught in the ugliest eyesore on campus. Although, in fairness, you do have Starbucks on the bottom floor, which is always nice going into a lecture.

Good variety of modules in 2nd and 3rd year. Engaging lecturers who do want the best for you. In first year a compulsory module is research skills and methods, which is actually one of the most useful module ever as it teaches you how to write a uni essay properly. This was something I was quite anxious about, so very glad to have this module to set me up well for my degree.

I’m afraid the tutor responses and support is very poor. They do not respond to student queries re modules , which wastes students time. Lecturers were also on strike which fragments the students learning. The students should have a refund on this as it’s not acceptable
