Student Review: 5 /5

Law with Criminology, LLB Hons

By member559731 On 8th June 21

The law with criminology course is lovely, in my first year the mandatory courses were, criminal law, contract law, constitutional law and intro to criminology. I found that all of the courses and the course leaders and tutors were all very lovely, especially Rebecca (criminal law) and Vicky (constitutional law).

I do a foundation year which I think should be cheaper then the following years as we don’t learn much about the actual subject and more about how to learn. For people who didn’t get the grades for first year it can be a waste of a year and money. But the teachers are all friendly and help as much as they can

Quite good, first year seems a bit irrelevant as most is repeated from a levels, and some ways in which you're assessed/grades seem useless - writing a 'reflective CV' being one of them.

Very intense course with a lot of independent study. The course itself is not easy but is what you would expect and therefore the work itself takes time to complete but is not impossible. The online teaching isn’t brilliant as much of it covers independent work completed beforehand which isn’t the most helpful or group work that is often poorly explained. The academic advisor is very helpful and a first point of call with any issues, they get back to you very promptly and always have time to chat and help you out

really impressed with the course and it’s module tutors they all massively understand how much of a struggle it can be during covid, and so there is extra support which you can reach out to, although you have to find this support yourself rather than be given emails and what not, if covid wasn’t a thing i would say it was good for value of money but the fact i’m online isn’t good value for money for me, no one has tried to get us into campus at least once.
