A highly exciting and rewarding degree, this programme is taught by friendly and helpful lecturers who show a keen interest in everything they teach.

A written exam paper at the end of each course is worth 70% of the total mark, with regular, online assessments making up the majority of the rest.

There is a lot of variety, especially since the campus is so huge, teaching takes place at different sites - all equally as good as each other.

The first year is not difficult if you have a passion for the subject, put in a lot of effort, have a great mentality, and if you discuss any issues with the friendly lecturers/other staff and your peers.

Studying English at Royal Holloway has been a joy. I love Victorian Literature, and I am lucky that my uni has a dedicated centre of Victorian Studies, that often hosts lectures and talks from various speakers. The teaching is excellent, the reading lists are interesting and the class sizes are pleasingly small.

Module topics were good but the content sometimes felt like it was all over the place. The material (slides) provided by the lecturer lacked chronological order and was at times confusing. The coursework was ok, was expecting the lecturer to be a bit more creative as we had done something similar in second year. Overall it was a good course but could be improved.

i started to learn spanish as my 3rd language.the course was really intractive and we had tons of things to do during the designated teaching hours.the teachers of the course for both, level one and level two were really profesionals and had a very good grasp of the subject .i managed to make many friends doing that course and i would love to continue with learning spanish , even after i finished university.we were regularly asked to do diffrent homeworks which helped us to understand the moudule more and come up with questions which we had. agian, the lecturers were really friendly and they were ready to help us with almost any enquiry.

I think that this was the best module by far. The lecturer, Professor Adam Roberts, made the subject interesting. Yes we had to analyse books from our childhood which potentially ruined the pleasure factor but he made it fun. He even dressed up on a few occasions. I really enjoyed this module.

Fantastic module that covers all basic areas of entomology. You even get to do your own mini project about a particular insect. You learn in depth about the behavior and ecology of that insect.

This is a unique course which attracted me to select this University. The lecturer Mike Spaget is engaging and a pioneer of his subject. It includes a broad range of topics that link modern warfare to economic concepts.

The module was well introduced to us in terms of the context in which modernist writing came about, the writers and texts on the syllabus are well known which means it feels like a great opportunity to focus on a text worth talking about.

I've loved studying Greek Law. I'm taught by an expert in the field and it is really interesting. The topic I've enjoyed most has been Homicide Laws and the Homicide Courts in Ancient Athens. It could seem quite wordy for someone not really interested in it, but Greek Law has been one of the best courses I have taken.

This module was, personally, my favourite within the degree so far as it was most relevant and interesting taking my future career path into account. However this module was purely lecture based with a small section of PBL and I think it could have been greatly improved with some field trips to, for example, a pig farm or poultry unit as it is proven that when things are seen and experienced they are better understood and learnt that purely reading or being told about them in a lecture environment.
