my course, anthropology, is really interesting and challenging and is very enjoyable. i had around 8 hours a week in the first year including lectures and seminars for the different modules. my course requires a lot of work outside classes, there is quite a big reading list for the different subjects but often they are really helpful and interesting. in anthropology the majority of examinations are in the form of essays or coursework, there are not many exams which is good if you are better at writing essays than taking exams. the feedback from tutors is often helpful as it gives constitutive feedback.×

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.
