Majority of the lectures are great. They're enthusiastic and passionate about their subject. The course content is mostly great, as a human geographer though I do dislike some of the more physical/science based modules. You get a really good variety with this course though and genuinely learn lots. The uni also run an award scheme where you can get help to get work experience and begin your career journey which is really helpful. read more

Whilst my personal tutor isn't the best, there are many other members of staff who I can go to talk to if needed. All first and second year field trips are fully funded by the University which allows us as students not to be in (more) debt! read more
