I truly wish I had picked any other university. Previously I had been to Middlesbrough, and I could not forsee how badly a course could be run before I had been to Sussex. I had thought there would be a minimum standard for all courses in the UK. This was not the case. read more

Over term time we could be covering more than we actually do. However, the two subjects blend nicely with each other and offer complement each other with skills for essay writing, etc. read more

Although the content is very interesting, the way in which it is taught does not excite me at all - the lectures are always focused on a random minuscule aspect of the text and/or social context, so it is pretty much individual learning. No expectation to bond with personal tutor, no initial individual meetings are set up which is strange. Always feel like I am not taking anything away after a lecture. read more
