In Humanities students are expected to do most of the work on their own, so there are not much teaching hours. In history and history of art the courses are quite interesting (but also challenging). It would have been better if they were structured chronologically, especially in art history. The essays are usually quite challenging, but also contribute greatly to your knowledge if you research them in depth. The exams are usually quite difficult, at least for international students, as you are expected to write 2 or 3 essays for a limited time. The feedback you receive on your essays is usually sufficient and you can discuss it further with a tutor. It is a lot more difficult with exams, where you receive no feedback and there special procedures to allow you to see your paper. For history of art students the Hunterian gallery is great asset, in particular with Whistler and Mackintosh as part of its collection.
