There is no guidance. Personal tutors are hit-or-miss, but the content they deliver is as inane and boring as the rest of it. Some lecturers are great, and there are small bits of interesting content here and there - but the vast majority of this course it abominable.
I felt the teaching quality in 2 year was diobolical compared to first year. I found myself having to study a lot harder in order to teach myself the content. I felt the courseworks we were given weren’t taught well at all. They were only explained in detail very close to the deadline which made it impossible to feel confident.
Lecturers were fantastic, really engaging and brilliant. My personal tutor was wonderful in terms of support, going out of his way to help me out. Such a vast range of subject matter covered in the first year - something for everyone!
The lectures are good however I don't see the need to have an hour tutorial every single week as I have not gained one thing from these sessions other than being told that the title goes on the first slide of the presentation
I love my course however you will have to learn a lot of things on your own, looking at the lecture slides won't help you pass and I wish the lectures were more passionate and organised but it's not that bad :)
The tutors are terrible when it comes to attending to our concerns or any issues we are having with content. Some are extremely patronizing and I do not feel like I understood half the content in year 1. I love my personal tutor, she has really supported me and given me advice where I have struggled, however I feel that there needs to be more in place to support us in our studies (especially now) and when it comes to job prospects during our studies to prepare us for afterwards.
The course is fantastic. The modules are really interesting, and the lecturers try their best to make the course engaging, even with the current climate of the pandemic. With the skills you acquire from the modules, it makes you more employable when you graduate.
I was a bit disappointed in teaching abilities of the professors. Despite some of them being experts in the field, I feel like they don't really know how to demonstrate that knowledge to students, and some lectures can be quite boring and monotonous.
I would personally like to make they course a bit harder, especially for Year 1. I also thin that the entry requirements should be higher, since about 50% of the people on the course drop out during the first year, meaning they are not really passionate about the subjects. I think if it was a bit harder, less people would attend just for the sake of having a 'uni experience'.
My tutor has helped me be able to spread out my options in what I want to do after university. Although Psychology and Criminology does not have a wide range of opportunities, it had given me an insight of what I can use this degree in some areas. There are numerous modules within the course and some are difficult to be able to keep up but there are tutors out there being able to help
