There isn't much teaching time which might be a problem if you struggle to self motivate. First term I had 8 hours, this term 6. However because it's a small course I still feel like you get to know your tutors and they get to know you through seminars, so I don't feel like an anonymous person which is good. Assessment comes in the form of essays, presentations and exams. You give one presentation in first year, 10 minutes in groups of 3, and it's only to your seminar group so not too bad. There are a couple of essays per term but overall I don't feel like i'm overworked. Some of the tutors are great and really inspiring, some not so much.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
