The dissertation module is highly encouraging. Students are free to research an area of their choice providing it reaches minimum guidelines. Tutors are always available for support and guide you along the way. University resources and contacts are of good quality and help you write a first class dissertation.

Employment law is something that will affect us all at some point in our lives, and the employment law course at Lancaster is designed with that in mind. We are taught and examined on a very practical basis, which is very useful as law can often be theoretical and abstract.

A superb module taught by the excellent Professor Peter Corvi. Extremely clear presentation of material, and engaging treatment of fundamental financial topics. Throughly recommended for anyone, not necessarily from Economics/Business School background for a deeper understanding of finance.

This was a module chosen in my second year and I definitely have mixed feelings about it. There was an incredibly huge amount of information packed into each 50 minute lecture which proved very difficult trying to memorise for the exam. A lot of the content was quite interesting but the quantity of it dampened my interest of the module as a whole. The coursework aspect on the other hand was a lot more enjoyable as it involved going more in depth with certain aspects of the module I found interesting.

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.
