Pretty easy, overall.
You learn a lot about global politics, and political theories that help you form your own opinions on not only politics, which for many citizens is mostly voting, but how it affects our lives and self-perception. You feel more informed of how political structures work and how politicians think, and the different decisions they have to struggle with. Although you study a lot of political theory which may seem more idealistic than practical, you'll end up feeling more confident when reading the newspaper to form your OWN opinions or when voting.
Reading the course material for tutorials, it was less political theory then the main course material and more of the actual current cases and plus discussions with other students were fun and frustrating.

Advice for students:
Understand, ask questions about theories concepts, and don't just read it and memorize but aim to understand the connection between theories and how they apply to real life.
