Below, you can find out personal stories of just a handful of our current students, finding out why they chose to study here and what they like most about their course, their University and their city.
What subject are you interested in?
"From the beginning, my tutors have provided me with endless help and support, which shows that they really care about all their students and want the best for everyone."
"The course is fun and challenging, bringing together theory and contemporary views affecting the modern world. I have found it really fascinating so far."
Criminology and Security Studies >>
"I love being a part of university community, in such vibrant and diverse city. I enjoy the learning environment of the Curzon building and the great facilities the university provide such as the ASK desk and the center for academic success, as I was diagnosed as dyslexic via the guidance and assistance the university provided."
Psychology with Criminology >>
"The psychology department is a brilliant, inclusive and welcoming team of supportive and friendly professionals. The course allows you to cover wide-ranging topics and explore your possible interests through many optional modules. The facilities provided are also excellent and there are support teams for anything a student could possibly need."
"The variety of lecturers means that you get to experience a variety of different teaching styles. This variety also means that you get tips from different people about how to succeed, giving you more of a chance of finding a technique that works for you."
"As a mature student I really feel that the school of psychology operates a fully inclusive course where students regardless of age background etc are drawn in to a family of students and staff where everyone is supported to achieve their fullest potential."
"The combination of both subjects has provided me with an added bonus of getting the best of both worlds. The faculty of Social Sciences and the Criminology team helped me to participate in different projects, including the Everyday Sexism Project, which was ran in conjunction with the International Women’s Day."
Sociology and Criminology >>
"The course is very diverse, offering a range of options and modules. Lecturers are always approachable, and happy to help when needed. Studying sociology has made me a lot more confident and has allowed me to open up and meet new people."
"Lecturers are approachable and always willing to help. They also keep students up to date with everything going on within the faculty, like events. It's a very well organised and delivered course."
