I have been extremely disappointed with the University's communication during the application process. I believe to call it appalling is not an exaggeration.

I am a primary education student and I’m going into my third year. The university is fantastic and has amazing facilities and support network. The staff are easy to approach and experienced! The location in Oxford is far out of the city centre but the bus is direct and is only 10 minutes away. There is a range of resources to support primary education students and the library is a paradise of books for a variety of subjects!

BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

The degree is a modular structured degree, with different stages in each year. I personally think that this is a good idea, as it gives you a chance to choose modules that will suit your future preferences as well as completing the compulsory modules. Teaching and assessment always have mixed views but generally all good.

BA (Hons) History
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

History as a subject is always interesting and therefore doing it as a degree is even more interesting. At Brookes over the three years you look at a vast variety of different eras and aspects of history which broaderns your knowledge. The lectures are always interesting and the seminars give you time to go over the lecture and get a better understanding of the topic and the readings associated with it. However, this course is a very independent one and therefore takes a lot of your own work to do well.

Legal Theory and Critique(Honours Component)

TAKE IT if you love philosophy and law. DO NOT TAKE IT if you can't think for yourself.

Chris Lloyd may seem aloof but he's an excellent lecturer/module leader. Andreas Kotsakis is a lot more detailed at times. The seminars and lecturers are done one after another, all within 2-3 hours. Both excellent. Do your reading to make it worth your time.

Magazine publishing module takes you from the very start of magazines to the end . You have two pieces of coursework for the which is a research diary, where the library is much needed and you create your own magazine which is perfect for creative people like me.
