German and Politics, MA Hons FullTime

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

Scandinavian Studies and Politics, MA Hons FullTime

Loved the course, the year abroad was e superb experience. I had a lot of opportunities to combine knowledge from my 2 specialties. The administrative staff was excellent, and lectures are passionate about their work- they do, however, at times seem to be unorganised read more

Social Policy and Politics, MA Hons FullTime

The overall course is okay. However £9250 for little contact time and powerpoint presentations is slightly ridiculous. Personal tutor was not always helpful. The strikes went on for 6 weeks, with no teaching & the exam content despite never having been taught any has not been amended. Very poor in my opinion. read more
