Courses are a mix of good and bad to be honest. A lot of the German course feels a bit pointless. Haven't learnt much and will be switching my degree for next year read more

Great course: my Lit lecturers were wonderful, so enthusiastic and funny, whilst my German teacher got me from no ability at all to a very advanced level of understanding. Can't wait for Year 2! read more
