This degree is excellent because of the range of books, the depth of topic, and choice of courses in honours years. The teaching is informative and engaging. I have thoroughly enjoyed this degree.

I really enjoy my course, its flexible, so I can try modules of different courses that are relevant to me, such as history or archaeology. Its well structured and extra help is readily available if you need it. It teaches you a lot without being relative or boring and there's a good emphasis on transferable skills. The teaching style is good, helpful to students of a range of abilities. Assessment is split between an essay and an exam. I really enjoy it and can highly recommend it.

It is very interesting as you get to discover a lot about the life of those from the local area however if you want to know a more broad understanding I would recommend another college of studies as it doesn't cover the full amount.

Was my favourite module in the first term. Great professor. However, a quality of tutorial depends on a tutor, personally, I have found it helpful, some of my coursemates - not really.

An enjoyable course throughout, however the latter two years, the honours years of the course, were more enjoyable and insightful than the earlier ones. The teaching standard was fairly good, however there is limited class time, with the course being heavily weighted towards personal reading. The courses for the degree largely fell under the structure of one main essay and an exam. The essay would receive good, constructive feedback, however the absence of feedback from the exam, often the majority of your mark, made understanding where you were struggling and where your strengths were somewhat difficult. The variety and depth offered by the courses in the final two years was very rewarding and more often than not I believe it allowed students to pursue those subjects which interested them most. Overall an enjoyable course that for the most part offered a good balance between being challenging and manageable for students.

This module is what sets this course above other geology courses at different universities. It is incredibly intense with little guidance from lecturers. It is the dissertation module but unlike all other degrees what you hand in first time is your final grade which is not helpful. Also renting a holiday home for 7weeks and getting all the equipment and results printed comes out your own pocket which is very expensive.

This was my first accounting course. I expected a lot of math, numbers and spreadsheets. I did not do a single calculation in that course. Instead it showed the underpinnings and importance of accounting in our society. This module got me interested in Accountancy as a subject and even a potential career.

The process once agreed on a topic with my supervisor was good, mainly my work but steered in the right direction from the prof. However the allocation/mad rush to get a supervisor was awful. We attended a lecture one day at the end of was like it's a race go apply to the ones you like, go.

This course was extremely interesting and I found it to be a perfect introduction to the degree. The lecturers were all quite competent, to different extents, and some were more interesting than others, but overall I found the module very enjoyable, particularly the lectures on social psychology. The workshops were very stimulating as well and I found that they enhanced my communication skills and limited my fear of debates. They also gave me a much deeper knowledge on the psychological aspects of every-day topics which I found surprising and interesting.

There are two lecturers for this course, one of which is lovely the other is condescending and just in general, not very nice. He is however, a leader in his field and he is well aware of it. He skims over material and expects you to think the way he does, if you don't he calls you stupid which is good for confidence in the first semester of your first year of honours. The material you cover is also difficult to understand in the first place and you'll end up having to go over practicals multiple times after they have happened just to understand what you've even been doing.However, it's important to realise that this module is worth about 0.7% of your overall degree mark, the exam paper literally never changes so just going over previous years will be enough to guarantee a pass. The material covered is also re-covered in second semester by a much nicer lecturer who actually explains what you're doing to the PhD demonstrators before the class. Just be prepared for this course and keep up on reading and keep in mind it's barely worth anything in the long run.
