The lecturers here really know what they are talking about! They teach you all the skills and all the necessary science you will need to get a job in the forensics sector in the future. They are very kind and approachable and the labs here are fantastic!

Geography and Sociology, BA Hons

By K.leggat.15 On 4th December 15

Lectures all very interesting, so getting good value for money. Sociology first semester isn't a huge step from Alevel which can mean it's boring occasionally. Both subjects link well together, and there is a wide range of possible future careers.

Lectures are ok. Sometimes watching movies for 2 hours doesn’t really justify the money. As previously said no contact with personal tutor, had more advice from lectures.

There’s a great mix of experiences from Lecturers, some have personal experience from the Troubles in Ireland, being in the police, or proffesional cultural criminologist! We also have a great forensics department and a forensic archaeologist! There are some lecturers who are less engaging but they are the minority in a fantastic department!

Some of the lecturers are better than others. The marking is often harsh and feedback not always very helpful. Getting grades back are nearly always later than the agreed date.

Sociology, BA Hons

By member1138809 On 2nd June 19

This course has been really hard to review due to the extremities within the differences dependent on the lecturer you receive. 2 are brilliant, will provide all the information required (as well as extra) and you only have to ask for help/more information and they will provide this for you. Perfect powerpoints each lecture and are always available on the day, if not before. Others cannot string 2 academic sentences together, provide limited information for assignments until 1/2 week before. Unorganised, rushed, lazy. Not good value for £9,500 a year! Personally, I do not think job prospects improve from doing this course. It is a good stepping stone for a Masters and then a PHD but the careers recommended are HR, social work etc and I do not think this is any different from college A level prospects.

The lectures had absolutely nothing to do with the assignments given, teachers were too far up there own arse to care about any students and didn’t offer any guidance on the tasks set, instead lied about the marking system. For instance, the most infuriating was when I had to do a presentation, a fellow student asked if there was a certain dress code, to which the answer was no, yet I got marked down for wearing a coat, an absolute shambles of teaching and university wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Any student who has the unfortunate task of studying here will end up with depression like I did
