Beautiful university however there is a huge stigma attached to it. I am from the east end and sometimes feel very self conscious when speaking out in classes or lectures due to my east end accent. There is even such a thing which is known as the “Glasgow uni accent” which is horrific and put on by many people.

The actual campus is beautiful and is such a nice environment to learn in. I study civil engineering with architecture and the course has been challenging but the lecturers have all been brilliant.

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

Overall experience has been 3*, I do not feel as if there is enough academic support across the board. Little chance for improvement and learning when you have gone wrong (apart from France, Vietnam and Punishment)

Third year Modules

- Punishment, Internment, Containment, 5*

Great course, clear material and clear objectives. Great staff.

- The Vietnam War: 5*

Great course, clear material and clear objectives. Great staff.

- France, 1789-1914: 4*

Great course, slightly less clear material and less clear objectives. Great staff.

The psychology department at glasgow university has an excellent course. it is highly structered but also allows you to develop your skills independently and gives you lots of options when choosing modules to study.

The course has mostly been enjoyable. Most of the content has been engaging, challenging and interesting and the opportunity to pick subjects in later years allows you to study more specific areas you might be interested in.The group design projects undertaken every year gives you a great experience to prepare you for real work as it develops you team-working skills as well as being a great way to put the theory you have learned in lectures into practice.

Course module review - Microeconomic Analysis: Games And Industry, 24/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

Microeconomic Analysis: Games And Industry
2.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
2.0 / 1 review

The course was excessively abstract and did not engage with a wide range of teaching or resources. It was poorly communicated and uninteresting, and was the sort of course that made me want to give up economics. There was no indication of how the content or theory might be relevant to the economic problems facing the world today.

The module of 'Doing Global Business' provided me with an in-depthunderstanding of the essentials of undertaking cross-border business, comprising overviews of world business; theories of trade and foreign direct investment and international business regulation; and practical aspects of how to do business internationally.

Course module review - Renewable Energy 4, 23/05/2016

Renewable Energy 4
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

This module was particularly enjoyable for me, with clear notes making learning easier. A wide range of renewable energy was covered including solar, wind, geothermal, tidal; as well as non-renewable including nuclear, oil, gas, coal.The difficulties in transition from non-renewable to renewable was also made clear.
Each topic was fairly in-depth with around 12 different topics of energy. This gave a workload comparable to most 20 credit modules whereas this is only a 10 credit module.
