Student reviews

Studying for Introduction to Criminology has been a truly rewarding experience. After many years of not studying at this level, I was nervous and excited, and realised that time management was really important. From the online activities and assignments, plus the tutor advice and support, you become part of a group. I was soon totally engrossed in the whole learning process. The subject matter encouraged you to think about crime from a completely different aspect and understanding. The course encourages you to present arguments and challenge your long held opinions on crime and justice.

I am so pleased I did this module towards my Criminology and Psychology degree. I would highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed this module. It was a great module to ease me back into education and really helped to build my confidence. I found the material really interesting and in-depth. It has opened my eyes to many areas of criminology I wouldn't have even considered beforehand.
I found my tutor very helpful and informative, along with all of the online tutorials I attended. Only downside was the technology letting the tutorials down slightly but it was always overcome.
I would definitely recommend.
