Big change from high school units in history. Very broad and sometimes difficult to see the connections. Lectures usually ran overtime and tried to fit too much content into lectures. Lectures also seemed random and not related to content at times. Jeremy was good at lecturing and bringing key points together, he taught his subjects well.

The lecturers and tutors are well versed in their historical knowledge, will always make time for you and try to explain the content with simplicity and expertise despite the fact that you cover 500 years in only a 12 week course

Good unit, well-organised and well-presented. Lecturers (and my tutor) were very knowledgeable and open to discussion. Perhaps a little too broad – lecturers were sometimes guilty of presenting topics in too much depth, and essay questions were similarly very broad. My advice for the major essay, which can be submitted twice (once at the semester mid-point and at the end of semester), is to focus on one specific element, rather than trying to cover too much in only 1,500 words, if I remember correctly. Do, however, reference the unit's overall themes. Make sure you do submit twice, as the greater of your two marks will count. From what I've heard, the unit does change slightly from year to year – it's good to see unit content being reviewed rather than remaining stagnant.
