Overall I have absolutely loved my degree of criminology and criminal justice. First year lecturers eased you into the course content and taught introductory modules with the choice of an extra module in either criminal history or criminal sociology. Second year was very structured and non choices in modules were given! Still however an interesting year. Final year there was much more choice available and some fantastic modules to choose. The majority of the lecturers are fantastic and come from amazing research backgrounds! The only pitfall I would give is the lack of help I'm receiving with my dissertation.. However that's down to an individual at the university not the university as a whole. The experience of studying criminology at USW has been one of the best things I've ever done! Definitely recommend the course and the university itself!

I have loved my time in Uni, you will study a wide array of subjects as part of the business school. This prepares you for all areas of the industry. Furthermore, throught my study I have always been supported and encourged by lectures, they are all willing to make time to help you. Also you are encouraged from the start to get as much experinece under your belt as possible and there are modules to go with this aswell to refelect on your experince. In addition, I had a year out working in the industry and had support from the uni throughout this prossess making the transition as smooth as it could have been. 

I would recommend this course to events students who want to leave uni and feel prepared to go staright into work.

Some lecturers have been some of the most helpful knowledgable people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. But when you're paying as much for tuition as you do these days you expect better than what I've had from other lecturers, such as being given the brief for an assignment two days before the deadline, or having the course leader claim sick days when in reality they were sorting out a costly job in a Canadian uni for themselves, leading to making a rushed decision about third year module choices in the last week of September because none of us had been told anything about it. I've learnt a lot and hopefully the bad elements of the course have left with that specific lecturer but you do expect better.

This course is fantastic if you enjoy fashion and all the surrounding elements. There is opportunity to expolore all aspects of the world of fashion such as photography, to buying and merchandising. There have been numerous lectureres come and go due to new jobs/maternity leave which has been sad to see them go as they have all been very helpful. In the first and second year you get quite a lot of guidance (if you need it). I've never had to ask for help as I have understood everything stated in the briefs given. Tutors are very approachable and happy to help if you  have any issues. Year 2 was a big step from year 1, likewise with year 2 to 3. I am currently in my third year and am finding the quantity of work quite overwhelming, but you just have to get it done. Tutorials with tutors in third year are so helpful and i'd advise all students to take priority of these tutorials. I have enjoyed this course as fashion is something that i've always been interested in, but if you don't have a real passion for it, then it's not the course for you.

The course consists of coursework and essays usually 50/50, it is challenging and the content can be tedious but also interesting.

The degree as a whole is creative, fun and very much live! We have worked with numerous brands such as John Lewis and Motel which have been useful into gathering in insight into how these businesses work. I would like it to be more creative psychically as most of the work we do it digital on programmes such as Photoshop and Illustrator. Overall a great course if you have a love for fashion, if not, this course is not for you!

Very good variety of content on each module. Good choice and variety of assessments and assessment types. Good lecturers. Needs a little more guidance for people who've not completed any psychology studies previously.

The content is a combination of current affairs and a brief history of previous politics. Depending on your module choices you can take your degree in a criminology direction or a sociology focus on youth. Simple one hour lecture and one hour seminar structure until third year then it is dependent on your choices. Can pass with one exam per year with various essay assignments but again if you chose modules with exams you will have to do more. I have for the most part enjoyed this module having a long summer as lectures tend to finish in march or April. With the exception of exams. Overall interesting course if you like politics and the economy or are interested in being in public services!

My course us intreseting and covers many aspects of human biology including anatomy and physiology, anthropology, tropical medicine and vertebrate zoology. However the main lecturer thinks you k ow very little yet expects you to know things in high detail. That is he goes over the very basic information and skims over the harder details. This course us very non- specific so you can go into a whole range of jobs after you graduate however this also means you may need to do another course unordered to do more specific job roles.
