I'm currently finalising my 5 university choices for 2016 entry, and I have been looking at history at Lancaster. There seems to be some really interesting modules available and the uni seems to have excellent points going for it such as the campus, reputation and accommodation options, as well as location and distance. However, I'd just like to know if anyone knows more about the modules you can study and their assessment, such as -
- is the online example module list an exhaustive list of options?
- how many 'optional' modules do you take alongside 'core' options, can you take modules from other degrees (e.g a language module or from the Medieval and Renaissance Studies degree)?
- Lancaster seem to have a great range of assessment methods, but do you know roughly a formal-examination:'coursework' ratio?
Many thanks for any help you can offer,
Tons of places at all these high-ranking unis
