    QMUL or rather Barts and the London rejected me 4 years ago post-interview so I'll always hate this university.


    Down with Queens. :mob::mob::motz::nn::naughty::mwuaha::nah::poo::poo::poo::poo::poo:
    That's probably because you weren't up to it

    Wow! Now that's not an answer I expected. What's your major? And are you an undergraduate or postgraduate student?
    Hahah relax. Apart from the admin part which is true for everywhere in this country, the Linguistics department doesn't have any of these problems

    Well Sapient, I am in the same boat with tree but may be in a different compartment... I have accepted MSc Telecommunication Systems Management offer of QMUL(Though I am waiting for some more)... I have offers from Cardiff and Birmingham but then this course appealed me more than the others... Plus it is in London... But I am still wondering if this is the correct choice for me.. I am having 9+ years of work ex...so was wondering if I will fit in well and was more worried about the job placements... Any comments on it???

    I've heard that Telecommunications has loads of exams and is kinda hard... but there're people aceing them

    Haha. Not at all.

    Care to elaborate on what it was like? When did you graduate? How is the quality of education? What were teachers like? I know they're good in sociolinguistics, what was your experience with sociolinguistics there like?

    Sorry for bombarding you with questions, haha. I'd really like to hear the personal experience of someone who went there.

    you'll only hear about good things from me though...
    I did my degree in 2011, and it was good. Depending on what you're looking for, maybe go through the module list and see if they do stuff you like?
    I'm more of a variationist sociophonetician if that makes any sense so it's pretty cool that we have loads of phoneticians in the department. But then there's discourse people as well if you're more into the qualitative side.
    One thing about QM is that is a small department, not like the 150 people class you'll have at UCL. King's probably has more students as well. I like it a lot, and I got to know everyone really well.

    I did Linguistics last year, and actually a few of the issues he posted were spot on.

    There was a mistake in one of the exams meaning you couldn't answer the question, but they took that into account and lowered the grade boundaries.

    I had a few cancelled lectures, but that was due to the strikes so I'll let that one slide. Was only about 2/3 cancelled altogether tbf

    Oh that's unlucky then... You must be an undergrad? I was mainly talking about the MA course... But yes, there're issues with BA courses and let's not get into the undergrad exam/marking/timetable drama hahah
