Psychology with French, MA Hons FullTime

I love the content of my courses, they are always really informative and have some fun activities added in as well! Most of the teachers are enthusiastic about the subject which makes me even more intrigued to learn about the topics. I haven't spoken much to my personal tutor, but the very few times I have, he has been helpful and pointed me in the right direction. read more

French and International Relations, MA Hons FullTime

French and IR is interesting. I genuinely can’t complain about the Politics and IR staff (you have to do both in 1st and 2nd year), they make the course straightforward and guide you in the right direction. They are, for the most part, fair markers and tutors are happy to help you. French on the other hand is a tricky one. It’s pretty much expected that you take both the language and the culture course. There is a lot of coursework and tests, and they are incredibly harsh markers. It’s nothing like French at school (if you’re from Scotland at least). It’s also a small course so your tutors will likely get to know you and expect a lot from you which can be intimidating but it’s also a more personal learning experience in that sense as there isn’t that anonymity of a large cohort. Job prospects definitely depend on the course but I don’t think that’s any reflection on the university - most people know what they’re getting themselves in for when they choose. read more
