I am in the first year and have so far really enjoyed it, as it covers a wide range of topics in both subjects to give me a good idea about which one id like to do in the future! I have picked psychology
The tutor is really good and I like the course, but for £9k a year it is really expensive. I want to be a Psychology teacher do teaching jobs are needed, but not sure what else you could use this course for other than psychologist.
Some lecturers do just read of the power point slides, however there are some who actually engage and make everyone in the lecture listen and engage with the lecture. However, I'm most disappointed by the lack of workshops and seminars in 2nd and 3rd year which I think are crucial in achieving the best grades.
The course material was very engaging, and I really enjoyed it, the support from staff was also excellent. However even with a 2.1 and experience working with vulnerable adults I have struggled to get even a voluntary/low paid job in the field due to the high amount of competition, and so have had to go into postgraduate study.
Really interesting subject. Staff are funny and try to make the boring bits enjoyable. Lots of extra opportunities available and we are always notified about opportunities for us, even outside of the university.
I haven't started my course yet because I'm still in induction week. I've been disappointed with it so far as not a lot has happened. £9000 a year is expensive for the amount you are in. I'm only in for approx 8hours a week.
I get 11.5 timetabled hours however this is reality 10.5 as my lecturer doesn't want to stay until 5 on a Friday. Lecturers are good however they tend to just read off the slides, not very useful.
Actual course is very good, lots of info being taught. Essays and assignments released in good time before the due date.
My personal tutor wasn't present at our induction, then emailed to say we had to go and see him if we were not present. Rubbish as he was the one absent!
So far so good.
