UCL is smack bang in central London so you literally have everything on your door step. You’re in one of the best cities in the world and surrounded by some of the smartest people in the country plus it’s just a hub for pretty much every career. You can get in touch with many a high flyer as they probably also live in London so you have easier access to make contacts. However this does come at a price and that is the damn expense of it all and UCL isn’t fab at being good for poorer students. London is expensive. Halls are expensive. And you have to kind of grit your teeth and drag yourself through if you don’t come from a well off background.

Coursemates are friendly, but just that everyone has their own circles its hard to fit in. For example the french kids do not allow any non french in their social circle, the chinese kids hate speaking to other people, sometimes they just ignore others ...

Course review , 31/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The amount of teaching hours are a big disappointment with this course, and therefore you are required to do a large amount of work in your own time. The support within the department is exceptional and there are plenty of opportunities to gain extra support on your modules, individual feedback is given for all coursework essays and office hours are extensive. If you make use of these it makes it much easier to do well.

Anthropology is such a great degree as it cover all bases. You can think of any topic or interest and it can be studied anthropologically, especially at UCL. In first year the compulsory modules cover the basics of anthropology, ready for the following years when one is able to pick pretty much any modules you like, ranging from applied medical anthropology to primatology. The staff in the department are exceptional and it's amazing when you read a high esteemed journal article only to find out it was written by your lecturer.

Course module review - Classical Mechanics, 11/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Looking at the statistics, the Classical Mechanics is by far the hardest module in the first year, probably the hardest in the first two years. Basically, it teaches you the mechanics chapter of physics and sometimes it gets quite tricky to understand what is happening on the white board.
It is important to know that not the content is extremely hard, but the professor does not really care about it, and he enjoys, somehow, making students to feel miserable. So, you have to learn very hard and spend serious time on this module. Also, his assessments are very hard.

Course module review - Macroeconomic Theory and Policy, 11/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

So far Macroeconomics is the module I'm enjoying the most.
The lecturers is enthusiastic about the subject and able to deliver smooth and clear lectures with no mistakes or confusions whatsoever.
I like his method of projecting slides through the visualiser and work through the models "as we go" during Lecture rather than delivering a unidirectional, passive boring lecture resembling more a talk than a class.
