UCL aims at being very diverse and inclusive. Equality is important to certain departments more than others. There is still a long way to go, but it's working on it.

The universities local GP has a mixture of great and terrible Doctors, therefore students should quickly find a doctor they match with and sticks to them. The GP also only takes students from a certain postal code.

The course was incredibly boring, repetitive. Everything that we were taught throughout the 3 years could have been summarised in a 50page book. Save 9k, purchase a management book online and you will be better off.

BA (Hons) History

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.

BSc (Hons) Anthropology
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

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

Classical Mechanics
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

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.

Macroeconomic Theory and Policy

5.0 / 1 review

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.
