For the most part I have greatly enjoyed my first year of experience studying English Lit. The course is quite fast paced as they want you to try a bit of everything so that you're better equipped to choose your own modules in the following years. We studied a bit of everything from films, plays, poetry and novels from a variety of eras. There was 3 coursework essays (one at the end of each term) and a short group presentation, and one end of year exam on everything we had studied throughout the year. The difficulty and complexity of these assignments tended to increase as the year went on, but the tutors would always be very helpful if you had any problems and a lot of information could be found on the Moodle sight.
A few cons I have found throughout the year were that there wasn't a lot of help given for the end of year exam, which consists of 50% of your grade. It was also a bit annoying when lecturers didn't put their powerpoint slides on Moodle or their slides weren't very informative, so it was difficult to catch up if you had missed a lecture. Seminars wise, the atmosphere could be a little awkward and tense if nobody had any points to give, and it personally made me feel a bit uncomfortable if I didn't fully understand the text as I felt pressured to contribute. Alongside the seminars we also had to meet in groups outside of class to discuss the text, which we would then put forward in our seminar discussion. This could be helpful but a lot of the time it was difficult to delegate points within the group, and there wasn't an even amount of workload from everyone in the group.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience, but there were some little details that the university could work harder to improve.
