The Politics department is brilliant, with excellent seminar leaders who are always happy to help and answer questions. The course has a lot of independent learning, and I wouldn't recommend it for those who struggle to motivate themselves. read more

Great course, only 6, 50 minute teaching hours per week though so not really worth £9k. 22 weeks of lectures/seminars works out at about £82 per hour. Obviously, this doesn't include access to the excellent library facilities or include exams, essay marking time and personal tutor hours, etc. Point being, go to your lectures/seminars and make use of office hours, you're paying for them! read more

When you consider that it's £9000 a year we all know it's a rip off however I suppose you're paying for all the facilities that come with the University such as the brand new diamond building which reportedly cost £90 million or something ridiculous. Aside from that the quality of teaching is good but it depends on what lecturers you get however all of whom obviously know their subject back to front. Content in the course has been interesting despite the constant struggle as a result of the lack of communication between the two departments but I guess that's just what happens when you do a dual honours degree. You are given a personal tutor if you need them however I have not needed mine thus far. At the end of the day the point of going to Uni is to get a job at the end of it, and going to a very well respected Uni will boost your employability in the future. read more
