A super flexible degree within which you can take modules in history, political science, international relations, economics, philoposhy, anthropology, geography and urban planning! You have 100% choice over almost all of your modules, barely any compulsory ones especially once you get past 1st year. This means that you can fit the assessment of your degree to what suits you best, i.e. exams or coursework or a bit of both. ESPS team are fab and look after you very well too, always answering any queries!

It has been a good experience overall - I came to uni without a shred of knowledge of European politics and came out 20 essays and one incredible year abroad later, equipped with knowledge. It can be a hard climb for British students who have not been exposed to the EU at school before studying at uni, especially when you're surrounded by incredibly intelligent European coursemates, but it was definitely worth it.

In first year we have 3 mandatory cores + 1 language + 3 major + 1 minor modules. Great for people who have varied interests of want to take different perspectives on an topic of interest. Science and Engineering offer a variety of interesting topics from different departments.

I have absolutely been enjoying my time at university so far. In both aspects, social and academic, UCL has not disappointed me. The degree seems to be very practical. It is incredibly challenging, I admit, but I honestly believe that that's exactly what makes the course interesting. There is a variety in the work we have to do, from the usual things like essays, to film making, to photoshop and other graphic programmes to field trips. My university is taking our department on a field trip to Barcelona in January, which is completely free of charge (or rather included in tuition fees...). I would highly recommend my degree at UCL.

The degree has a very wise structure all over the three years - the second year being the core one since we have to study Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Econometrics.I really like the idea that every year we are given a number of credits that we have to choose to study in the subject(s) we are interested in. For instance, rather than taking optional modules from my department, I decided to opt for some political science optional modules, as they will help me with my future career choices. But different people choose different optional courses clearly and the list of subjects we can study is huge.The study is a lot independent - lecturers only give you the very essential points of the topics covered each week and study is more structured like independent research.Problem sets and tutorials are set in such a way that we have to face with situations we have not faced before and we have to solve the problems trying to cope with the material we are given at lecture plus what we have got from independent study. This is why keeping the pace of lectures is essential if one wants to perform well.Although administrative stuff is not very efficient in my department, I am overall satisfied about the subject chosen and especially about the teaching staff who are responsible for classes and tutorials. They are all very well prepared in their fields and at hand to clarify any doubt students might have.

Modern Languages plus is a very complex degree. I study two languages of my own choice - French and Norwegian but I also have history and literature modules. Literature and history modules are mostly assessed by essays and languge part by oral and written examinations in May.Thr course consists of tutorials and seminars and the teachers here at UCL are great but you do most of the work yourself and that can get a bit tiring and difficult.The exams take place in May and therefore if you have a class that is first term only, you need to keep reading through your notes in the second semester in order to remembet and do well.UCL also offers many language societies that are usually 5 pounds per year and it is a great way to practice your language skills and male new friends..Books for the course can be a bit more expensive and I recommend getting a used book so ypu can save some money.

It's good fun, but you really need to be able to work on your own and hit deadlines by yourself; there is an awful lot of lab books, coursework, readings and exams to do. If you can work very hard and apply yourself, then it's fine but a lot of people are very stressed. This is also quite a mathsy/sciency degree so do not fall into the trap of 'it's a human science, it's easy' as you will have to use statistics, scientific method and lab reports. However, it's really interesting and broad, so it's perfect if you want an undergrad in a wide range of fields. Employment wise; you aren't doomed, UCL is an okay uni and it is a BSc, but don't leave careers services to the last minute.

The head of faculty is very keen to support students, however, student support is generally poor. The teaching style is very independent, expect to self teach yourself most of the course. Also, the amount of reading that you have to do is insane!!!

It is a fantastic course with such a variety to offer. The first two years were lecture based and preclinical without much focus on patients. Then we had the chance to do an integrated BSc in a speciality of our choice which gave me a great insight into Paediatrics. Now we do our clinical years where we get teaching in top hospitals in a wide range of specialities which is excellent.

The content and structure is definitely evident within this degree program however there isn't a clear link between aspects of the mathematics module and it's application in engineering.

The complexity is of a high level, there is a good range of difficulty in regards to the module where you feel that you are being stretched but not necessarily thrown in the deep end.

I personally haven't been thrilled by the course but that could potentially be because I've always considered going down the finance route.
