Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    It would be greatly appreciated if any of you would be kind enough to tell me what you have heard/what you think of the University of Sussex, its prestige and its PPE course, and perhaps what you think of my experiences there and the league rankings.


    Offer Holder's event:

    I have received an offer from the University of Sussex for PPE a while ago. I have attended the PPE offer holder's event, and I was very much put off by the apparent annoyance of the professors if I tried to engage them on a certain event related to the course, or the university's prestige and league rankings.

    They really did not seem appreciative of passionate prospective students, and they seemed very 'average'. I don't know if I had too high expectations from professors, but in the end they are people who have dedicated on average at least a decade of their lives to the subjects they teach. And yet they don't seem interested in engaging a very interested prospective student?

    Should I ignore that or is it an important telltale sign that the professors are a bit uninterested in the students or even their subjects?


    League table rankings:


    Economics: 39
    Politics: 36
    Philosophy: 23

    Times Higher Education:

    Social Sciences: top 65 in the world

    QS World Ranking:

    Economics: 151-200 in the world
    Politics: 51-100 in the world
    Philosophy: not in top 200 in the world

    It's the only PPE offer I managed to get a hold of, but it doesn't look as though they're great at it at all. Usual offers are AAA/AAB for the course.
