I think my degree has been extremely valuable. The teaching style tends to be consistent- lecture based which I find useful and extra help can be gained easily during seminars which we have once a week. Most lecturers reply to emails promptly although this has been an issue for some. The course content is diverse and interesting and feels extremely relevant to present real world issues which I really appreciate. There is a wide range of modules for students to participate in and I have chosen to branch out to work with the Arab and Islamic centre and languages centre whereas many of my peers have found a good range within the Anthropology department itself.

Liberal Arts is an extremely flexible degree for students who are interested in several subjects, especially those in the humanities and social sciences. The staff is extremely supportive and the core modules for the course have several forms of assessment which contribute to your learning.

I feel like a lot of people consider my course as an outsider as 'easy' and 'just a bit of fun'. However I believe that after experiencing the first year which involves practical and written task it's is far from 'just a bit of fun' and although the practical first term was of course a lot of fun I have learnt so much about myself from a physical exploration in Drama and picked up so many useful skills which will help me in the future. I have developed my team working, communication and imaginative skills with in practical work and my literature and analytical skills with in written work. This is why I enjoy and appreciate my course at The University of Exeter and would recommend anyone looking for a career in drama to attend. I have had so many opportunities in my first year at Exeter alone with constant auditions for small plays and chances to get involved in lighting, costume, publicity, directing- the list is endless and it makes me proud that I am on the course at Exeter University.

LLB law at Exeter is great, it encompasses all aspects of the law over the three years and allows you to focus on areas which interest you the most after you have studied the core topics. The teaching style of the unversity ensures that all information learned in lectures is fortified via workshops and the perks outside the course such as law fairs give you additional befits such as meeting the big firms with the prospect of working for them. Overall the course is complex and difficult but once completed the benefits of having this degree are endless.

I very much enjoy studying law at exeter. The teaching is normally excellent, with a few exceptions in some modules. The contact hours are quite low and you feel like you are not getting your full .£9k worth only getting 8 hours a week but overall it is good

Brilliant course which encompasses subjects from across the scientific disciplines and allows flexibility to tailor one's degree to your particular interests. Good range of teaching setting such as lectures, work shops and seminars. Students are very involved in research from early on.

Generally a very good degree with just a few issues. I would say the biggest is the presence of a large number of multiple choice exams (which contribute to the final mark) which have had as few as six questions. These do not in any way reflect the academic prowess of the examinee and suggest that the examiners are just lazy markers. The teaching quality is generally high and I am happy with the range of practical experiments we are able to take part in.The year abroad is incredibly bureaucratically organised and the physics year abroad coordinator in my opinion holds a totally useless role (there is an entire year abroad office which is totally capable of doing the job). There are a number of members of staff who seem to be there just to make things awkward but without them I think the degree would leave very little to be desired.

University of Exeter provides an extremely well detailed structure, allowing the students to experience different areas of law. The school works in a way that the students are in charge of the pace of their own learning. Group studies and and discussions are integrated into the curriculum in order for students to discuss the problems or questions they face when studying on their own. Each class consist of a small number of students which allows for a more cohesive learning experience. Although heavy (as what you would expect from law school) , Exeter has made it enjoyable and less stressful than expected.

I enjoy my course as a whole I find it difficult to fully converse with all of my lectures. I think it's wrong that term finishes so early for 9,000 a year. I disagree that Exeter will not post model past exam questions. I think that all lectures could do better with punctuality on the emails.

On the whole, I have so far thoroughly enjoyed my degree at Exeter. The Law School have been quite innovative with the new structure of workshops instead of seminars. This means you actually do worthwhile research to ensure you understand the content, and you also form a more personal bond with peers and lecturers. The course isn't perfect; some compulsory modules such as EU Law and Contract Law are slow-burners. However, the marking is always fair and I haven't learnt a single thing that wasn't useful to me.
