Great choice of modules to allow each student’s experience to be tailored to their interests. Each module covers a wide range of content which can be very interesting but at times due to the range of content can be less interesting to others. There is the option in final year to have 100% coursework which also may appeal to a lot of students. read more

From the second year you can choose most of your modules. The first year is mostly about learning basic concepts. Almost all of my modules were useful. The feedback you get is not really useful but you can ask for more if you feel like you need it. The content is really interesting and there are lots of books and articles available for you. read more

The POLIS team are really great, helpful and caring. They are willing to help at evry turn and they draw on their own experiences to help you understand the subject. Every module is taught by an expert in the field and with bigger modules shared between two experts teaching different parts of the world or subject. They giver you a varied view on politics and no views are unheard or suppressed read more

Great content and amazing teaching staff - I've had good relationships with my academic advisor, dissertation supervisor, and other lecturers. Flexibility to choose modules in second and third year with varied and interesting topics available to study. Opportunity to switch to a placement or year abroad sandwich course, can decide as late as second year so there's no need to make a decision when applying to university. read more

The course doesn't prepare you for any particular career or job really and the content you will never need to know again. On the plus side it's not too hard as long as you put a bit of effort in. Therefore I would say that the course is worth it if you really want to go to loughborough and enjoy the experience but doesn't teach you or give you any practical skills read more
