Alright I suppose. If I have to say more, I'd probably say that the weather was generally a bit rubbish. Didn't mind the local town, sandwiches were good from the shop closest to campus.

Such a beautiful campus with all the best facilities. Students are so nice and all lecturers are helpful. They are really inclusive of everyone, no matter what their gender identity, sexuality, ethnicity, etc. There is a society for everyone and great sports facilities for those into sports.

BA (Hons) Sociology
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

Studying sociology for a degree has had its challenges. It is very theory based and there is a lot of content to remember. But even so the information that you learn becomes very helpful and interesting in your every day life. You'll start using the theories you've found in your life and it can make you understand society a whole lot more. The forms of assessment can be difficult, it is a mixture of essays, exams or even presentations but they all give you a different perspective on sociology and what your are learning.

Generally a good course with a lot of variety and opportunity to study wild modules - from literature to Japanese, but there is a lack of career opportunities whilst studying or aftercare once graduated.

Course module review - Cell Biology, 10/03/2017

Cell Biology

The first section if this is A Level and taught my the lovely Louise Beard who is really concise with her teaching and explains things well and is a really nice helpful person. The second section is about chemical processes of cells and I don't like chemistry so I hated this part but it's really important to learn it so even though the second lecturer's teaching is boring, learn the content, learn from my mistakes. The first section is east the second section's complexity ups x7 so watch out.
