The history course at Kent is really good if you want to pick which parts of history to study. In the first year you only have 1 compulsory module, but apart from that you can choose whatever you want to study. Wild modules are also an option, which is great if like me you wanted to start learning a new language. In terms of workload you don't get many contact hours a week, it's generally around the 10 hour mark depending on how many modules you have in the term. Obviously there is a lot of work to do in your free time, you'll have to make notes on chapters for the following week for all of your modules, and some also require you to make a group presentation. In your first year most modules will require 2 essays around 2,000 words, so definitely try to choose the same amount of modules for the autumn and spring term. Otherwise you could have 3 essays all due in the same week. In terms of content and feedback that all depends on which module it is and who is teaching it, bit they're generally all of a high standard.×

My drama course has slightly less teaching time than other courses, but not so you would feel you don't do enough. The course content covers a wide range of subjects from performance art to stand up comedy, so as long you have an interest in any aspect of drama, you will probably find something interests you. The assessments are a combination of essays, presentations and practical performances/workshops, which are evenly distributed either within a module or you can take one practical and one academic module.×

The amount/ type of teaching you have each week: 8-10 hours mixed between seminars and lectures. The content of your course and how interesting and challenging it is: It is generally fascinating for me. Coursework is easier, exams and tests can be quite difficult. The type of work youre required to do (such as essays, exams and practicals): There are essays in almost every module, some online quizzes, some written tests and some business reports. Most modules also have a final exam. The feedback you receive from tutors: Generally takes 3 weeks to get coursework marked. Feedback is quite basic, however they encourage e-mails or drop ins for additional feedback. What your course-specific facilities are like: The KBS facilites are quite decent, they are isolated and not shared with any other department.×

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.
