I enjoy the subject geography in general so to be able to learn about it at a university level is amazing! The lectures are often interesting and easy to follow. Essays are probably the negative side as it’s so different to any written in previous education. However, lots of help is available if needed! read more

My tutor has always been there for me no matter what the question is always going that extra mile to make sure I am emailed all information I may need for example when I was questioning a year abroad ! All the lectures are outstanding with seminars being so helpful regarding a more deep discussion from the lectures. Most interesting lectures for me are the economic lectures- it is so easy to see how our university has such good lectures in this field. read more
