The course is very hard, and the buildings are constantly undergoing development! It is very noisy on campus and quite hard to study. building works have also meant campus is smaller, and a lot harder to get from A to B.

Course review , 31/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Personally I think the course provides a very good, brief but with certain level of difficulty as well as critical thinking kind of challenges which I like. The teaching overall was okay but what I really find useful was the fact that they record lectures and prepare loads of useful notes and exercises that really helps in providing a better understanding but one has to do a lot of self study.

The course content is very interesting as a whole and covers quite a wide variety of topics both in social policy and government allowing you to find out and choose what particularly interests you. the majority of the work is however independent study so you have to be quite self motivated to undertake this course.

Course module review - Foreign Policy Analysis 1, 07/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

I enjoy this module the most as part of my degree. There are different teaching methods employed when teaching it, such as role play, lectures, classroom sessions, reading list, videos. I believe that more use of videos should occur as part of this module’s teaching methods, making it more interactive and easier to remember. I enjoy most the fact that it is future oriented and the study material is contemporary, as much as possible.

Course module review - Internationalization of Economic Growth, 03/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

EH101 is an overview course on Economic History. it takes you through different economies, from Russia to Africa. This allows you to explore different themes that have occurred over time in these countries and understand the impact this had on their present day performances.

The course is great to introduce you to how economic historians analyse and provides a basis for you to choose what to specialise in during second year.

Course module review - Development Economics, 01/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module is superb. By far the best course i've done at LSE. The reading list was varied and interesting. I also think that the lecturers and teacher for this course were passionate, and interested in giving us a good insight into the true field of development research.

I liked the set up of classes, and especially how we had a new topic every week.

The exam structure was good as it allowed students to truly engage with content. My only negative is more feedback would have been better, but with only 1 teacher for almost 90 students i do understand the issue.
