    2 days ago I logged on to my student account and tried to find the course spec for royal holloway. I find it, I open it....1 ******* ******** page with a few ******* bullet points :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    ONE PAGE!!! Is this a ******* joke!? I thought surely this can't be the proper one so I went to my form tutor and asked him for the course syllabus and he gave me the same thing.

    I am absolutely FUMING right now, just fuming! Like seriously, I've been made to feel bad about my initial dismissal of this uni and got all the lectures about prestige and rankings aren't everything ....but I can't even ******* get a proper course syllabus? My gcse specs were more ******* detailed than that WTF! :mad:

    I am so outraged as all I care about now is focusing on my course and doing well, I thought these ******* will at LEAST provide me with a syllabus that can't be written by an 8 year old on microsoft word but NO!

    I am really really angry, what can I do now? Just go to those incompetent *******s and tell them that their disgraceful one page spec is not good enough? Yeah, that'll really put me in their good books, first week in and I'm already criticising their ******** institute.

    All I want is a proper syllabus for my course for **** sake is this too much to ask? :banghead: Can anybody please suggest what I do? Is there any place within a uni where I can file a complaint or something?

    You should go to student help if you have one or just email them and say you are disappointed with it. Are you sure you want to stick with this uni given how much you dislike it?

    Yeah, you might want to consider if you want to settle for lower standards than you were hoping for.. Speaking from experience, I have learnt the hard way that it isn't worth sticking out somewhere when your first impressions aren't good, and now its too late. So give it good thought, you might want to do a couple of resits.

    tbh it does sound pretty poor, I'm not going to a very prestigious place and I have a separate area for each module this year, granted it's more like 3-4 pages outlining them not incredibly in-depth but we have a few course leader/tutor induction things next week which last a few hours each, I imagine they'll go into detail then.

    And that is why universities outside the Russell Group are generally considered to be ****. Enjoy 3/4 years of that

    hahaha I love how this was so lovely and helpful and yet so unhelpful and irrelevent. Then again, I'm not gonna be much more helpful: OP, chill out a bit.

    clearly it's the principle of the thing :unimpressed: she woulda been expecting a bit better from the uni
    anyway, OP might be one of those really OCD people who needs the syllabus to revise/organise notes etc.
    i've never looked at any of mine but hey, whatever floats her boat

    University is about independent learning and study. If you need a detailed list of exactly what to study / revise, then uni is not for you IMO.
