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.

The breadth of the course is perfect for individuals who are interested in understanding people from a range of perspectives. Human sciences brings a really well rounded perspective that involves challenging aspects of human action. The structure is quite clear in terms of which subjects are where which provides order to what, at times, can feel like a lot of different ideas. The teaching is generally really good although sometimes personally I'd appreciate more detail in my essay feedback. I definitely enjoy the content of the course although, admittedly the workload can be overwhelming at times. However, it is also completely doable.

Great course. Made modern with the introduction of study of religions to it.i.e hence now called 'theology and religion'There is enough freedom to specialise in an area of interest. The teaching and resources are phenomenal. World class tutors and professors.

In terms of the positives the teaching is highly specialised, with one-on-one tutorials a key feature of how I am taught. Subject-specific seminars are a maximum of seven participants. The course is unique amongst other universities and the course content is wide ranging and challenging. My criticism of the joint honours would be that sometimes even my tutors don't fully understand the course syllabus and because departments don't always effectively communicate I have been saddled with a very heavy workload at times.

My degree is extremely intensive, and has greatly improved my A level French, while allowing me to study Russian from scratch. This means I have a very good understanding of both languages, as well as strong insight into their literature. I really love what I study and my tutors are very knowlegable. The tutorial system at Oxford also means that I am able to raise my ideas one-on-one with some extremely influential academics.

I have a few criticisms, though. One of these entails the year abroad, where I had no choice in where I would be studying. I felt very isolated and felt that the university and my college did not support me at all when I was not present in Oxford for this year. I also feel that the amount of work I have to complete each year is far beyond what is necessary - me and other students frequently find ourselves pulling all-nighters and rushing pieces of work just so we don't fall behind, when I would much prefer to turn in better pieces of work that focus on quality over quantity. One more point of criticism: we are expected to cram a ridiculous amount of work into eight week terms, so if you fall ill for a few days it can be impossible to catch up. I would strongly advise Oxford to instead implement a nine-week term with a fifth week reading week, to allow students to catch up - the current system seems to penalise sick students as stupid or lazy and it's very unfair.A quirk of the Oxford system is that we sit exams (that don't count unless you fail) in first year, and then everything we learn in the next three years is for the purpose of sitting ten or so three hour exams at the end of the year - and that's my whole degree. While I don't mind this, it's going to be a quite physically as well as mentally tiring time and I'm not sure that three hour exam essays correctly represent the depth of knowledge we have had to acquire over four years of education here!

Overall, I would encourage students to apply to Oxford - as long as they are convinced they will be interested both in the course and in the tutorial system.

The degree is one of the most academically rigorous English degrees in the country. With its span from Old English (c.approx 8th C - 12C) to present day, you leave the course with a sense of the surface history of the whole of the English canon and deep knowledge of particular writers. The course has no set curriculum, so what you learn is almost entirely dependent on the whim of your college tutors (within the limitations of the demands of the exams - ie. must be able to answer 3 questions on each period paper) - which can be both a fantastic liberation and chance to learn about specific topics from an absolute specialist, but can also be concerning if your tutor is less committed to your education. Teaching in college is done in a combination of seminars (ie. classes - that work upon a system of open discussion...at least supposedly) and tutorials which are either one on one or one on two for the purpose (again, supposedly) of discussing your essays and delving into greater depth on your chosen subjects). Its a fabulous degree and incredibly enjoyable for anyone with a love of English literature - but is also very stressful! There is not much support for what should be basics such as actual advice on how to write an essay.

I think the combination of history and archaeology is vital for gaining a full understanding. However it would be nicer if there were more opportunities to study the science of archaeology or more modern archaeological qdvnancements as opposed to focusing mainly on the groundbreaking historical ones. But I do absolutely love it. I want to be an archaeologist when I grow up.

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.
