Oxford is such a beautiful city. The people here are very friendly and not like the stereotypes at all (or at least very rarely). The tutors are knowledgable and passionate about their subject and I love studying here

Despite a bad reputation, Oxford is trying hard to recruit more state school students. There is also a fantastic LGBTQ scene

Course review , 30/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The course content is very varied, it includes a large amount of neuroscience which may or may not be attractive to people. In terms of 'traditional' psychology, you are mainly limited to the small social psychology module - most other psychology is centred around perception. Lectures are around 2 hours per day, tutorials (small group teaching) around 2-3 hours per week. Although this seems to be on par with other universities, it is definitely not what I would consider good value considering the current tuition fee cost.

I've enjoyed the diversity of options available to study, as well as the quality of teaching and the content itself. Whilst the degree has been very challenging, the reward has been commensurately great and I have no regrets in taking this course. Thoroughly recommended for any serious mathematics enthusiasts.

Course module review - Quantitative Methods (Assessment Unit), 11/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Quantitative Methods is one of the most interesting first/second year modules and one with genuine practical applications (both in biology and beyond), but as it hasn't existed in its current form for very long, it's somewhat poorly organised. Clearly the course convenors are still trying to strike the right balance of traditional statistics and modern programming - still, I enjoyed it and the real world significance of the skill set I acquired (especially in the context of infectious disease modelling and control!) The labs were also helpful and fairly interesting.

Course module review - Public Economics (Assessment Unit), 07/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The Public Economics module includes the following topics: Healthcare, Education, Welfare economics, behavioural economics, Pensions, Taxation (Commodity and Income), Cost Benefit Analysis and Political Economy. The final exam consists of a paper of 10 essay questions, of which students have to answer 4. There are 2 lectures a week (1 hour each) and a tutorial a week, given by a postgraduate student. Tutorials are given in groups of 4 students.

Course module review - Topics in Music History after 1700 (Assessment Unit), 06/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Highly interesting content -- 3 out of 4 possible topics required for exam, which for me was C18th Opera, C19th Symphony, and a History of Electronic music. Unfortunately the content taught in each topic well exceeded what was possible to write in the 3-hour exam, which consisted of 3 x 1-hour answers. Would have worked better as being split into individual exam topics, rather than 3 in 1.
