Personal Rating



Personally, this module did not make me more more interested in economics as a subject. Although the lectures were very enriching and gave me a great deal of ideas on where the studies will take me, I was rather bored working on the coursework, for which I have received an expected grade in the range of 2:2 degree. This made me rather disappointed with myself and to be honest, I am glad it has passed.
