Because most classes are taught online, the experience is not good. If the lecture recorded by the teacher can be changed to synchronous learning, it will be much better.

Criminology, BSc Hons

By member458422 On 21st May 21

That's a way for me to have a different view on the world and on the life. Criminology is cool, but not scared. It's diversity and can cover everything.

Really broad first year which enables a good foundation for specialisation in second year. Leaves you with plenty of time to party and enjoy Cardiff! There are loads of people on the course so making course friends is easy. The SOCSI netball club is worth a join too!

Sociology, BScEcon Hons

By member1320082 On 1st December 15

I don't think this course is worth £9000. First year consists of everyone catching up with what was learned at A-Level and practicing essays. As well as settling in. They don't throw you in the deep end and the work transition is good. Half of the lecturers are great, the other half are questionably bad and presenting. My personal tutor seems less enthusiastic than I am, but other people's tutors are a lot better. We study a lot on our course, and a very broad range. I look forward to second year. There's A LOT of reading on this course. THere are constant emails and notices of meetings and presentations and workshops on placements and internships and work. I believe Cardiff University stands out with job prospects.

Lets get this straight - I never chose Sociology so I could find a well paid job afterwards. I chose sociology because i simply enjoyed studying it - as a result I enjoyed studying it at University. Cardiff has a great Social Sciences department with some extremely knowledgable teaching staff. However, they simply art that accessible - my personal tutor didn't even know who I was when I asked for a reference despite meeting up with him throughout my 3 years at Cardiff University. There needs to be more of a personal touch to the Social Sciences department between the lecturers and the students.
