I have a place at Leeds for September do do environmental science but I'm torn between Leeds and Plymouth. Does anyone do it already?
The things I'm keen to find out about are the teaching quality - I know Leeds is big on research but does that mean the lecturers are less enthusiastic about teaching? Like are they inspiring etc, good at explaining things and able to give you good feedback on assignments?
Secondly, is it ridiculously difficult?!! I am considering doing my third year abroad but to do so have to maintain a 2:1 performance throughout years one and two and just wondering how difficult that is (on of the attractions at Plymouth is that it doesn't depend on your first year grade). I'm not able to go to any of the open days so relying on asking people, so if you have been to the open days then any info you have on this course or similar ones is very useful!
