The university is located in ideal place close to train stations. I feel this university is good if your planning to stay at home and commute. I like the layout and as it has currently been refurbished it looks nice and the new additions are useful like the study area with the new computers in the tait building which i only recently discovered.

BSc (Hons) Criminology and Sociology
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

The degree is an enlightening one. It makes you think using not only the knowledge you've acquired in secondary school and sixth form but using just common sense and the experience of living in today's society. This course focuses more on the practical aspects not only the theoretical part as well. As it is a BSc degree you have the opportunity to think critically and apply what you learn in lectures and reading to actual life. The teaching consists of lectures and seminars which allow you to take notes and have further guidance on the reading and understanding on the lecture.

BSc (Hons) Investment and Financial Risk Management
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review

My course is very unique as it delves into the statistical and econometric side of finance taking into account trading, derivatives and risk assessment. I believe that this in depth and specific teaching will help me in the field of finance in ways in which degrees such as economics would not.

1) very poor teaching! no basics are taught
2) very intense course but enjoyable modules
3) no extra help is provided for people who dont come from traditional backgrounds i.e. A levels
4) no good societies to join/ hardly any extra events for students to attend

Course module review - Criminal Law, 15/12/2013

Submitted by Anand Gajjar on

Criminal Law
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review

This module has the fascinating, yet frankly odd, cases that are discussed, for the 4 stars awarded for it. Not to mention an incredible lecturer, who's professional-colloquial approach to the subject makes for an undoubtebly interesting lecture every time. I mean, where else would one be able to learn about 'suicide pacts' and 19th Century 'bus/carriage racing' without being deemed as creepy or weird?
