Welcome to the BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology with Foundation Year course.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the foundation year of the BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology programme at Birmingham City University and what I hope will be the beginning of a successful academic learning journey. This year has been designed to provide you with an introduction to the academic disciplines of Sociology and Criminology. In addition to this, you will have the opportunity, throughout the course of the year, to develop skills and abilities which are fundamental to successful undergraduate and post-graduate study as well as employment.

I encourage you to make the most of the forthcoming year and you will be expected to actively participate in all of the modules that you will study. This includes participation not only in scheduled learning and teaching activities but also in assessments. We have chosen a broad range of assessments throughout the foundation year.  These have specifically been selected to help you prepare for the range of assessments that feature on the undergraduate social science courses which will become available to you upon successful completion of your foundation year.

In each module, there will be formative opportunities for you to test your performance prior to attempting your summative assessments. To support you in your successful completion of assessments throughout this foundation year, we encourage you to make the most of the feedback you will receive from your academic tutors and peers throughout each module.

As Course Leader, it is my role to ensure that you feel supported by our academic staff, and I will be available throughout the year to provide you with any additional information or advice that you may need.

I look forward to personally meeting each one of you over the next academic year. Best of luck with your studies!

Please do log onto this and take part in the activities that are there to help you get off to a flying start on your course and get to know your course colleagues before you arrive on campus. We’re all very friendly and you’ll soon settle in very quickly. Remember, everyone is in the same boat and there are lots of people available to support you!

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries or concerns. Their role is to offer academic advice and guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly.

Finally, I’d like to wish you the best of luck for the start of your course. You are now a part of the Criminology and Sociology Department and wider policing academic community, and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed. In the meantime, why not start following our social media: @BCUPolicing, keep up to date with West Midlands Police Special Constables: @SpecialsWMP or explore volunteering opportunities @BcuVolunteering. We look forward to welcoming you on campus in September – in the meantime feel free to reach out to me or another member of the team if we can be of help.

Best wishes,
Sharda

Your research degree programme will be supported by a number of people and departments across the University.

As a postgraduate research degree student at Birmingham City University, you will be a student of the Faculty in which your research study is focused, and your supervisory team is the primary point of contact for all academic issues. Academic and progression processes will be overseen and authorised by the Faculty Research Degrees and Environment Committee (FRDEC).

Research welcome message - welcome message

Welcome message

Welcome to Birmingham City University and the start of your life as a postgraduate research student, a valued member of our vibrant research community. We recognise fully the commitment that you have made by choosing to study with us for a research degree, and we understand the support that you will need from our academic staff in faculties, our wider research community and our professional services teams to enable your success.

At BCU, we are committed to distinctive, original and rigorous research which discovers new knowledge and which delivers real-world benefits to society. Through your research and advanced practice you will discover new insights and know-how. By sharing your research outcomes effectively through publication, conference attendance and public and business engagement, your research has the potential to deliver meaningful societal, cultural and economic benefits on a local, national or even global scale. Increasingly, our research findings are being applied by others to address national and global challenges, through interdisciplinary research teams and international collaborations.

In the last UK-wide exercise to measure research quality, REF2021, 93% of our research was recognised internationally for originality, significance and rigour, of which 19% was judged world-leading. Our submission to REF2021 demonstrated how our research has been growing in volume and quality, and included 310 staff submitted to 14 subject areas. This is more than double the number of staff assessed by REF2014, as more of our academic staff engage in impactful research of internationally recognised quality.

We are continuing our journey to further improve the quality and impact of our research; to grow our research community and enhance our research culture. We look forward to the valuable contributions that you will make.

We hope that you will enjoy being a part of our diverse and expanding research community and find your research degree programme to be a rewarding and challenging experience. In addition to gaining a much deeper understanding of your chosen subject area and discovering new knowledge, you will also develop a wide range of transferable skills that will set you up for your professional life beyond your PhD.

Please take the time to read the information in these Welcome pages, and the links therein, as it will help you settle into the University.

We wish you the very best of luck with your studies.

Research Postgraduate Certificate - postgraduate certificate

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice

As you will be aware from your application and offer letter, all new research degree students are expected to attend and complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice during their first year of the PhD, DHealth or DBA programme (or during the second year of your EdD programme).

This course lasts one semester and aims to support you in developing the skills and competences required to successfully complete higher degree research. It is intended to complement the guidance and support you will receive from your research degree supervisory team, who will be the key part of your development as a researcher.

The course aims to:

  • Assist you in developing your individual research project through a structured programme
  • Prepare you to carry out academic work for your research degree
  • Introduce you to the research skills, practices and procedures that are essential for your postgraduate research study
  • Provide an opportunity for you to explore a range of theoretical and practical research issues and their application
  • Foster a supportive environment in which you can develop a specific area of research interest into a viable research proposal

The course serves to develop the wider research student community at Birmingham City University and enable participants to share any concerns that they may have and mutually support one another. It is important that you attend the programme both to gain the knowledge required to carry out your research degree, but also to make contacts with researchers in other faculties.

Successful completion of this programme is required in order to progress on the degree and attendance is compulsory for all new research students.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice is delivered via faculty and subject specific sessions as well as common sessions (involving the wider research student community).

More details on the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice will be provided at your induction.
