Criminology, BA Hons

By member736215 On 21st February 19

I really liked ARU and found the professors and staff to be very welcoming and friendly. I never felt that I couldn't approach somebody to ask for directions when I was a fresher which made the adjustment a lot more comfortable. The uni are very good with providing student support and make their services extremely accessible for everybody. I never used support services and so cannot comment on whether they were effective but had friends use them and said they were helpful. I was ill close to the beginning of term and they also called to check on me and were very understanding. I did drop out of ARU but this was largely due to my living situation and the fact that it was not feasible to commute. If I had been able to commute I would have and really recommend ARU. Please note I did live in halls but they were off campus and so I can't comment on the campus accommodation!

Psychosocial Studies, BA Hons

By member43621 On 21st February 19

I study at the campus of College of West Anglia. The tutors there are actually better than the ones at the mainstream campus because they actually care to help you and what grade you come out with rather than just bothered about their big lecturer paycheck! Really interesting course

Criminology, BA Hons

By member735726 On 30th January 19

A lot of the content can simply be caught up on in bed in your accommodation due to it all being available online. However there are several lectures on the course that expand on the content very well and make their lectures very engaging. If you take this course however you are likely to only be in uni 3 days a week, which raises the question whether it’s worth the hefty price tag of £9,250. Job prospects after this course however is very attractive and the course will highlight the many many differcet possibilities that are available with a degree in criminology.
