The lecturers are all very knowledgeable in the subject area and are willing to help at any point. The course can be a little tedious but can be fun at the same time. So for example I'm more towards doing the art side of gaming so I can find programming to be tedious.

The area itself is alright, it's got everything a student needs but smaller areas aren't very appealing to the eye. But then again it is right next to Manchester so if you need to do a bit of shopping then Manchester is always available.

Great course and fantastic lecturers however, there is a lack on in the field activities. There are no trips to places involving criminology or sociology and there is only one placement which is optional.

So the first 2 months have been pretty relaxed. The lecturers have said to take it easy in the first semester but obviously not too easy otherwise I wouldn't get enough done. The first year consists of no 3D modelling and plenty of drawing. Half of the week is really enjoyable but the other half drags and is a bit of a bore. It doesn't really help not knowing anything about coding and being expected to learn it in such a short space of time as well. Monday is the day where I have a lecture which lasts about 20-40 mins and the rest of the morning we do practical work which is fun to do. Tuesday is entirely practical based which is also fun. Wednesday is a day off. Thursday I have to endure a 3 hour lecture which to be honest isnt fun when you're just sat there listening to one man talk for the entire duration of it. And to finalise the week, Friday is the day we do 3 hours of coding which if you have no experience of, you are bound to find it difficult .

My degree is a joint honours course consisting of Psychology and Counselling. Whilst I understand certain things must be covered in order to pass the course, I would rather the psychology side was more psychological. Half the time I feel like I'm completing an IT/Maths degree. For me, the counselling side I am not a fan of. I don't agree with making people 'basically' participate in group therapy that you're in university with.

The course is very interesting and the lecturers try their best to make the subjects easier to understand. What I like about it that there are a lot of practical examples given as well as a lot of practical activities so that you're not only learning from a book. I'd advise you not to sign up for the course unless you already have some knowledge about aviation and have a love for engineering as I can see people that don't have these qualities are struggling already.

Tyr course is interesting and lacks organisation, things can sometimes be a bit last minute when it comes to information. The staff go above to support you any way they can throughout the degree. Equipment is on hand when needed but you have to book it not just collect when wanted, the people on the desk can seem rude at times. When it comes to feedback this can sometimes be late the university has a 15 working day turnaround but you might end up waiting longer than this.

Studying Criminology and Sociology at Salford will provide you with a sound understanding of the key conceptual and substantive issues involved in the study of society, crime and criminal justice. This course will develop your critical awareness skills, introduce you to the nature and scope of research, both in the field and as a process of information generation. You will also be able to connect to key institutions. This degree is designed to acquaint you with the general theories, typical methods and key studies of criminology [especially sociological criminology], and sociology, and to indicate their application to issues in contemporary societies. It uses the modular system to deliver an innovative curriculum with a wide range of optional subjects which serves the local community, is linked to research of international and national quality, and is responsive to the interests and needs of today's students. It draws upon the existing provision within Criminology and Sociology at Salford, using the diverse work in the School on the major role played by various social institutions, and in particular, examines how crime, deviance, justice, law, regulation, surveillance and punishment are constructed, maintained and disturb the social order at all levels. Our aim is to provide a deep criminological and sociological insight into the nature of social relations, crime and justice.

As I stated previously, this course is supposed to be the perfect balance of tech and business. This courses relevance to my degree and my career is minimal. Of course ethics cannot be disregarded as its the layers on which the business is built on. However, in an academic setting possible more relevant to law and ethics students. It would have been more preferable for ethics to be a single subject within a module.

This module gave me the opportunity to make a poster on cancer bio markers as a group. Team work, time management, research skill and communication skill all came out to play. This module is assessed 40% and 60% exams. Mostly covering pathologies in depth, it is like a sequel to a module from my second year module pathophysiology.
