Having done this course it feels like all lecturers were helpful. Uni was ruined by the pandemic and now it seems that online lectures are the better way except when we were first introduced to the course we were told it was better to come into class than to playback the online lectures. I do feel that I would have been better support if class had been in person the whole time, however, staff did do the best they could in a difficult time.

My personal tutor is extremely helpful and supportive. I also like all my lectures, particularly criminal law as it is very authentic and captivating. I also feel like it is has to do with who is teaching it, she is very knowledgeable, interactive and patient. Ruth Dawson read more

Forensic Science with Criminology, BSc Hons FullTime

When applying for this course i thought it would be all based on the forensic aspect but after being here for 7 weeks or so now i have realised that this degree is based around a number of different subjects including Chemistry, Law and criminology as well as forensics and biology. I believe this aspect of the course gives a student a better chance of future employment as they have a wider area that they can apply for due to the different areas covered. read more
