POLS1701 – Introduction to International Inequality & Development 76.4

This course has been one of the most inspiring courses I have taken. I was blown away by the perspective and the reality that I had never seen until doing this course. I would suggest this course once you have done a course like POLS1301 or POLS1201 because despite being a course without prerequisites there is a lot of assumption of knowledge on about political ideologies.

Week by week work book is pretty easy as long as you have read or even skimmed the readings, so easy marks. Tutorials are really helpful and there is a lot of explanations about the assignment.

The final exam is easy if you look at the past exam paper and pick like three topics to practice you will be more than fine.

POLS1701 – Introduction to International Inequality & Development 55.7

Firstly it is a great subject that gives great insight to problems the world faces today however I felt the lecturer did not really take the time to prepare for the lectures. If you do the readings you do not have to attend the lecture as all the lecture slides were literally copied and pasted from the readings word for word onto the slides. The lecturer does not go in depth at all to explain anything other than repeating the readings. The tutorials are great though as many discussions occurred that gave great insight to the weeks topic and many different view points. The textbook is not necessary for purchase as all readings are provided online.
