The nanny state of some departments


I am two weeks away from freedom. the freedom from my dreaded dissertation that is. however, it has come to my attention that each department seems to have their own rules about the amount of guidance and feedback given on these monstrous essays.

It seems some departments *cough Psychology* have taken to mothering their students allowing them to submit a first draft of their entire dissertation as well as running their work through the plagiarism machine. all work is also given written feedback about how to improve. I was allowed to submit one section (not even a chapter) of my dissertation and was only given verbal feedback.

Surely each student who attends Lancaster University, no matter what degree scheme they are reading, should be treated equally?

Everyone will graduate from Lancaster with the same degree and I think it is incredibly unfair that some students are givem more support than others.
