The degree is complex and difficult at times, but we are given a lot of resources and guidance to make sure that we have the tools needed to do well. Our seminars and lectures are well planned and there are readings to back them up if we don't understand and a lot of drop in hours for extra help. The assignments can be tough, and there are a mixture of them between the four modules we learn from. We also complete multiple choice tests which is good because we have different ways we are assessed and don't have to just fall back on full examinations or assignments. All our work is graded through an online portal and we receive regular emails about current affairs and many trips and conferences that relate to the course which are really helpful. Overall, the course is challenging and you have to be willing to put time in but also rewarding.

Wide variety of topics available even in first year modules. Lectures mostly really good, seminars more mixed but some really great. Some administrative issues at the beginning of term - late handbooks etc

As a joint donors student I have found that within my degree I have had less flexibility in choosing my modules, as I have been restricted. In choosing Queen Mary I had the hope that I would have access to practical as well as theoretical classes, however i have found that I was not allowed to do many of the practical modules for either film or drama because of my joint honours status.

This course has a wide range of topics to choose from allowing for a very personal and individual degree. The history department are extremely helpful throughout all three years, giving advice in classes, through emails and offering office hours for any further questions you may have.

My degree offers a wide range of knowledge and leaves you with a range of career possibilities to pursue. Programming, designing, and engineering are the main areas knowledge will be increased in. My degree offers a very practical way of learning from the bery start which gives students experience as well as theoretical knowledge.

I think my degree has been quite well-balanced when it comes to content. In my first and second years there were a lot of literature modules to choose from and I feel I got a really good knowledge of Hispanic literature. I did feel that Spanish 2 in my second year was a little dull. Although all the work was relevant, it wasn't as engaging or helpful as I feel Spanish 3 is. I felt the classes were monotonous. The teaching has always been good but so far I'm really enjoying the teaching this year. All forms of assessment have been relevant and helpful to my learning.

This degree so far has given me many insight into life and has enabled me to see the world in a whole new perspective. Each course in the degree of all deeply interlinked with each other, however at the same time they're all very different and vary in difficulty. Personally I find them very interesting whilst I enjoy organic chemistry the most, it doesn't mean that I don't enjoy the challenge the other course put forward. I find the teaching methods very helpful and I feel fully supported by my advisors and lecturers. I especially enjoy the interactive activities during the lecture but also the online quizzes that we are set. I am enjoying the University life Alan I'm so sorry about your uncle. I want you to know that you can always text or call me if you need to talk to someone. We love you all and I know this is going to be a hard time and I'll pray for you all. We will always be there for you.very thoroughly and I'm finding myself looking forward to going to uni every day.

The course content is very interesting and key modules are very industry specific. I believe the 8 modules studied per year is reasonable and allows enough study time and free time available to students. There is also a strong emphasis put on coursework and this is very important in succeeding in the course. The coursework given can be quite challenging yet allows you to work to a given deadline for each module. One negative is that the coursework deadlines given are very condensed over the semester. Furthermore, the teaching is of an adequate standard with some lecturers providing more support and guidance than others do. Overall, this course has been very enjoyable and has certainly made me consider further study in this area as well as aiming to develop a career in industry around this sector of engineering.

Economics and finance is a fun and exciting degree. It helps you achieve your goals and dreams in the finance sector and helps you realise how hardworking individuals, firms and governments are in the economy. The modules are somewhat interrelated and there is a lot of thinking involved. This degree is more mathematics based rather than essays so it is very grateful for those who don't like writing much. You will study around four modules each semester and there will be final exams in the summer. Some modules have coursework which is very useful as it could boost your grade up in the final year. Some modules such as microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics are sequential therefore you will study the first module in one semester and the second module in the second semester or the next year. Achieving high grades in coursework is very likely as most forms of assessments are multiple choice questions so there is no explanations or working out methods involved, however it does require a lot of studying in order to get at least 60 percent.
