Did visual anthropology.Dropped out.Jaw droppingly low stimulating,terrible quality of teaching from the lecturers,little to no support offered to students.Just plain awful.Teachers overall so full of self and absorbed in their research 24/7 it's just ridicolous.It's an utter shame scholars get paid to do such a sloppy job,it really is,for a crappy 1h/2h lecture a week?and allegedly,UK education is supposed to be of a good standard.Students,in my opinion,are left at their own mercy,the only support available coming from researchers (which are overloaded by the amount of work,of course) and fellow students (if).Leaving this university means leaving with an enormous amount of debt for no reason whatsoever.PUT YOUR and YOUR PARENTS hard earned money somewhere else,I really mean it.I really can't grasp what the fuss is about with this place-to me,just a hub for the stereotypical london hipster.A lot going on on the surface but that is pretty much it.Students aren't taken seriously enough,in my opinion,neither encouraged and supported enough.came across a couple of capable seminar teachers,but that's all I can really say.No real lead,not enough structure in both teaching and departmental organisation.Again,this is something that might suit a18 y old coming straight out of college,but I discourage any mature student to apply.Shockingly awful.Also,I must point out,I ve noticed a very disrespectful and obnoxious attitude overall from many of the lecturers and departmental staff.AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Uni is okay, very limited in what options you can do on your course. Technologically inept. Lack of resources. Teaching is good. Also good location in London.
