Do not take it thinking it is by looking at the assessment. The marking is absolutely ridiculous and the tutors have no idea what they are talking about.

VERY high-quality subject! No background knowledge needed as the course is so great at taking you from definining resilience and vulnerability right from the basics. Assignments were actually beneficial to our learning, lecture structure was great, tutorials actually teach you critical thinking skills through practical activities and not through monotonous slides! I took this as a second-year student and it has definitely opened me to a new way of critical thinking. Enter this subject with an open mind and curiosity to learn about disasters in all sorts of contexts and you will leave having learnt so much!

Great subject! Learnt a lot about concepts that I had never come across before. Make sure to scan the readings before you sign up for your presentation week because they are a bit of a hit or miss.

I really enjoyed this subject. It opened my eyes to a lot of the human issues and causes surrounding disasters and how they impact populations. The tutorial presentations were probably the worst part about this subject - my class was allocated papers to present on, and some were noticeably easier to do well with than others. As another reviewer said, it's important you pick a good case study that you will be interested in and able to write essays on.

fairly interesting subject, learning about lots of global disasters throughout human history with a particular focus on the concepts of 'vulnerability and resilience' - you pick a case study disaster to do the 2 main essays on, so pick a good one - overall a good subject
