What do students think?
BA (Hons) Sociology
“The lecturers are fantastic – they are very knowledgeable and try to personalise your learning. There is a lot of academic theory but there is always the opportunity to apply this in different ways, from creating posters to debates in class or trips away.”
BA (Hons) Fashion: Media and Marketing
“I knew I wanted to work in fashion, but not on the design side so this course was perfect for me. So far it has allowed me to find where my strengths lie. The reviews I have written within my Journalism and History modules have really helped me to become a better writer.”
