The campus and university were a lovely environment and modern in places. My course, mathematics, lacked a building which could be a future improvement. The SU was big and the services offered there were faultless. My overall experience was great.

My course has been excellent and the lecturers and staff in the Department of Criminology have been incredibly supportive. Overall, I believe Leicester is very strong all around: sport, societies, library, accommodation, careers are all excellent. I’ve found all the staff I have interacted with to be professional and supportive. If you go to Leicester and give it every ounce of effort you possess, you’ll have a great time as well as coming out with a good degree.

I have just finished my second year of studying Mathematics BSc and so far, I am pleased with how UOL have ran the course. So here are a few factors that make UOL a fantastic University to study this course at:

·         Excellent delivery of content – I find the lectures run smoothly. Whether it’s displaying lecture slides on a projector, using a whiteboard or explaining the material, it’s always been easy to understand what is going on.

BA (Hons) International Relations
5.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
5.0 / 1 review

I love my degree due to its diversity. International Relations includes politics and history, two subjects that, I believe, are vitally important to the development of society. In my degree, the modules challenge me in new ways, encourage me to read outside of the set reading list as each subject we cover, spikes my interest. Some theorists may seem a little dry sometimes, but the tutors and lecturers encourage us to compare and contrast theories with current happenings, which allows me to relate or at least understand the ideology.

Course module review - Perceiving the Past, 24/05/2016

Perceiving the Past

This one was one my favourite modules of the course, it was very interesting, and I enjoyed the fact that the students were allowed to pick their own topics to be taught in the seminars. However, the compulsory essay on empiricism was hard to achieve a good grade on because there was only 2,500 words available, and over 1000 students completing it. Therefore, it was hard to be original.

Terrorism

I was very unhappy with this module. I felt the teaching for this module had not been tailored to criminology students at all. I felt the lecturer was very knowledgable however expected us to know a lot of the information that he hadn't taught us making the lectures extremely hard to follow and engage with. I felt this was the general feel throughout the module for the other students and although the lecturer is very helpful, I really did not enjoy this module at all
