Student reviews

I found this module hard going mainly due to the amount of work you absolutely have to put in to stay with the programme. It is however, extremely enjoyable and confidence building, and I loved it although will admit to feeling almost overwhelmed at one point. But thanks to an extremely helpful tutor, I finally managed to get a really good score in the final exam. If you're hesitating about whether to take the module or not I would say without doubt, do it. You'll love it.

This was an enjoyable course and the teaching methods for the language, brilliant - especially for someone who may not have had great success with a foreign language. The history and the literature were thoroughly enjoyable, but wish there had been more time for reading the literature, and with far less emphasis on just one writer - Ovid. I didn't dislike him, but would have liked to study more, and be examined on more of the other poets - Horace, for example.
