Really interesting subject starting with an orientation of countries within Europe, a brief overview of major historical events prior to 1989 but main focus on post-Communist contemporary Europe- Brexit, EU, the rise of the far right. Big emphasis on what it means to be European in 21st century - quite philosophical ie identity parameters etc. Good lectures, excellent tutor in Danica Jenkins. Pretty easy assessments (except for 30% essay) and no formal exam. Quite a lot of reading but all provided online and no textbooks. Prepare well for the tutorials and attend lectures to get (unmarked) lecture quiz notes.

A great overview of Europe taught in a traditional way, but with some contemporary twists. The variety of source types in teaching and learning is a highlight of this course. The assessment regime was good, but the lecturers clearly preferred teaching certain regions (South-Eastern Europe), and so coverage was imbalanced. Northern Europe was not paid any attention in this course in 2016.

Interesting to learn about Europe, but the main focus is on the EU. And involves a lot of reading articles and books, watching movies and essentially writing a review on them.
