Teachers ignore emails, conceptual marking which gives us an unfair disadvantage, some teachers use high school teaching methods. Wish I didn't come here for my degree.

I think that it is good so far. However, as I did Sociology at A-Level, it is a little bit boring for this first term.

Sociology, BA Hons

By On 14th July 15

All teaching is research based, meaning we are taught by experts in the field! Whats more? The research in the Department of Sociology at Essex is so extensive, there is something to meet everyones interests. I'm not interested in all of Sociology, as it's quite broad, but they had experts on the fields that I was interested in. Also, you get to choose from an extensive range of modules both in the department and outside the department, so you can broaden your course content and follow/combine other interests. You receive a personal tutor who is there if you have worries/concerns. Your tutor is the figure head of a tutor group, which is also supported by 'peer mentors' who are able to support you and address questions relating to the student experience. Teaching quality is superb and teachers engage and interact with students during seminars, classes and lectures.

Sociology and Criminology, BA Hons

By On 13th July 15

Some of Britain's greatest sociologists and criminologists were full-time lecturers at Essex, and this reputation still carries on. The greatest quality that Essex Sociology and Criminology lecturers is that they DO NOT give up on you; they WILL help you whenever you need them. Many have done undergraduate and post-graduate degrees at more notable Russell Group universities, so you can trust that they are exceptional researchers and amazing at what they do. However, it is not Essex's fault that the course is not 100% value for money (you'd expect £27,000 to get you anything in life), but their teaching skills and learning resources are worth your time!
