Studying History and Politics has been incredibly valuable in developing me academically and personally.

The content of the course is largely interesting and varied, particularly once you pass through first year. Due to the joint nature of the degree, you have no choice of modules in your first year and as such must study the core modules for both history and politics. Sometimes these can be more slow paced, and occasionally feel slightly redundant. However, once you pass into second year and above, the range of modules to choose from is incredibly varied. The modules I have studied in my second year were engaging, covered a broad range of issues with a decent degree of complexity and were challenging yet manageable.

Generally staff have always been available to speak whenever I need to discuss my work with them.

Work is assessed through either long essays or written exams. Whilst the long essays are worthwhile, I found that the time constraints in the exam to be so severe that it often seemed counterproductive. For example, for an exam worth half of a politics, I had only 90 minutes to write two full essays.

Overall, I have found my course engaging yet academically challenging, though I have always felt I have had sufficient support throughout it.

I particularly enjoy the content of the modules we study, as well the options open to us, for example being flexible enough to take a business or economics module. In terms of forms of assessment we also get a choice, I chose to do 50% essay and 50% exam, which takes some pressure off the final term. However I would like more support from my personal tutors, even if I may not need it, it would be encouraging to have someone check up on you now and then.

My degree is interesting and engaging. The lecturers are world-class, and their interest and passion in the subjects has made for a very compelling degree course.

Plenty of online resources available including notes and videos of lectures. Course content is extensive although could use a few more optional modules. Quality of lectures doesn't usually disappoint and the lecturers know the topics very well. Assessments are timely and don't feel too rushed. Practical laboratories however are a bit rushed and feedback isn't always satisfactory.

Warwick has a very stringent criteria for first classes, and very few students achieve that every year - much lower than the average.Tutors are generally very willing to speak to students and are enthusiastic.Warwick Law is a lot more academically critical and theoretical than other universities and less doctrinal, making assessments and exams harder but gives a more holistic education.Overall it is rather enjoyable and if you need the help, teachers are always willing to lend a hand as long as you show enthusiasm. There are also many opportunities to gain feedback during seminars. Because Warwick's teaching style is quite different, you cannot simply rely on textbooks but must actively participate to gain a good understanding of the course.

Politics, International Studies and Quantitative Methods is a unique and hugely enjoyable course unlike any other! As a current student I am being equipped with a huge range of knowledge and skills that will transfer into a wide range of jobs. Not only this, but there is so much support in terms of workshops being held on essay writing, drop in sessions with members of the department, and lots of useful feedback given on assessed work.

Not a varied selection of module choices. Department with a lack of varied interests. Embarrassing student union and university as a whole. Forms of assessment are good, and department takes feedback seriously. Faculty also appear reasonable for the most part.

The course has a good structure that encourages you to progress between years, starting with lots of small assignments in the first year and fewer as time goes on.There are a wide variety of choices for modules that cover all aspects of physics which is good.The social life is pretty standard as at most universities but there are many different club nights which can cater to everyone's tastes :)

The overall experience of studying a PAIS degree at Warwick is excellent. The overall structure of the course allows for the right balance between study and allowing time to enjoy university life. Also, the support provided by staff and lecturers is really useful. There is also a lot of liaison between staff and students within the department which ensures the department creates the best environment for students. There is also a wide selection of optional modules to choose from which allow the student to focus on studying topics that interest them the most, with the core modules being interesting themselves also.

The course offers a massive range of options to study different topics. What I particularly liked was not having to work with texts in a chronological order. In first year, you have three core modules The Epic Tradition, Medieval to Renaissance Literature and Modes of Reading. I then chose to do a module in German language so the department is really open to people taking modules from other departments in all three years.The tutors are very helpful and have offices hours twice a week where you can meet up with them. They are super-fast in emailing back about anything. Usually in terms of assessment, you will have the option to do either 50/50 or 100% assessed. 50/50 is what I always choose and its usually one essay and one exam. Whereas, 100% assessed is just two essays which some people prefer of course. What I really like it the flexibility of my course because usually first essays are done in the autumn/winter term time, whereas for a lot of modules, even though you are taking an exam in the summer, you can choose to wait until the spring before you have to write your first essay. This is so useful to some students, because it gives them the opportunity to get a grip on the course first and really get stuck in before they commit anything to paper to be marked.
