If you are considering a degree in languages and culture, make sure you enjoy reading literature and history, as it will be required from you to read, analyse and write essays and commentaries about them. I am personally starting to regret my choice. I don't enjoy the culture part, only the language itself, and that I could have done on my own outside university. If you are going on a year abroad, then you need to study the language really intensively. You have little time before you are in a country that only understands that one language you are studying. You will need to find a job in advance, which includes writing a CV, lot's of cover letters and interviews. The teaching staff will kinda help you, but it's mainly your responsability, and it's not easy.....

Psychology is quit fun (for me at least), but keep in mind you will do lots of reading and you'll have to write lots of essays and reports. The statistics part might be a bit complex for students who aren't friends with maths. But honestly, it will look scarier than it really is. You don't have to be good at math, you just have to learn the steps!

The structure within the first year of my course allows you to take three modules (i.e. three different subjects), so although this feels strange as you do not feel that you are actually doing the course that you signed up for, it allows variety. I personally did not, at first, enjoy this as it felt I was not doing enough English Literature and my work load felt very fractured (as I had 3 hours contact time per module). However, I think it is a good idea as expands your understanding and allows you to take up subjects you haven't before.

I feel that my degree scheme has excellent content and the modules available are both interesting and relevant to the degree title. The teaching of these modules is led by academics who are enthusiastic and personable. However, as it is an environment-based course, I feel more fieldwork wouldn't go amiss in order to allow application of the theory to the physical environment.

The lecturers make, what are complex subjects, easy to understand and fun to learn. They are conscious to ensure everyone is okay and not struggling. The content is brilliant; covering a range of sub-disciplines to ensure there is something for everyone

When came here didn`t know what to expect, but this degree is great. Love that not only theory is taught, but as well used in practice at the same time. That is amazing opportunity to study an it develops a lot of skills. That's why I think it would be more appreciated in job market.

Personally, I adore my degree. The first year provides good insight into the various topics of IR. The lecturers are clearly experts in their subjects, passionate and interesting, as are most of the seminar tutors (of course with a few exceptions).Second year is even better, as it allows you to chose from a wide variety of different modules and effectively start specialising in whichever branch or area of IR you wish to. Though the actual lecture and seminar hours aren't horribly intense, the amount of reading and homework is quite significant, though it does give you a much more profound understanding of the subjects.

The structure of the degree is excellent as I am able to cover a wide range of areas of law from tort to EU law. The content is intellectually stimulating and the quality of teaching is excellent. My only criticism is that sometimes some staff members can be hard to contact but on average they do get back in touch within the week. The feedback on assessments is also excellent.

The content of the course is extremely interesting, and allows you to delve deeper into topics discussed at A-level. It also gives you a more complex insight into the human being, like the anatomy of the ear, for example. However, there are issues with some of the lecturers as they have quite thick accents, and teach the seemingly more complex topics, like the anatomy of the eye and brain. It can be frustrating having constant assessment through WBAs but it means you are revising as you go and brings up issues you have with stuff before the exam so you know that's what you need to work on.

I recently finished my first year at Lancaster University studying BSc Marketing.I find my degree very well structured and interesting with a wide variety of modules.In the first term, our studies were based on a marketing introduction and basic information regarding the whole modules. I can say that we did a bit of everything (e.g. market research, segmentation, consumer behaviour, etc.)

The course offers a very intellectually challenging experience, with the amount of content pushing you to your limits. The law course at Lancaster is very difficult but only in order to prepare your for a career in a top law firm/set.
