Sociology at Edge Hill University is an enlightening and fascinating course which provides endless opportunities for growth, development and expanding interests. The course content is fascinating, providing a range of angles, perspectives and approaches to theories, ideologies, and topics.
There is a diverse approach to discussion topics which have helped me to develop an informed and critical perspective to sociological debates. The tutors are helpful in guiding you to deepen your understanding of the course, and to explore specific passions within sociology. I’ve found the support network at Edge Hill is generous and assistive to any problems.
Edge Hill is a place not only for academic growth, but personal growth too. Outside of my course, societies and sport clubs have provided me with opportunities for personal growth and to explore new interests. I am a member of the Sign Language Society, and take part in Rounders, Rugby, and Hockey. I am a member of the gym on campus too; the subsidised membership has allowed me to use the swimming pool facilities, gym and even dance and fitness classes which I had never tried before.
The best part about my degree so far has been opening and expanding my mind. Learning new ideas and perspectives each time I do a little reading, within my lectures, or within discussions in my seminars.
The mixed variety of assessment methods is beneficial. It allows everyone to be able to apply their strengths in different aspects of assessment. For example, essay writing is a strength for some people, whilst presentation work is a strength for others.
I have got dyslexia and my department, fellow students and Catalyst staff have been on hand to support me in any way I need throughout my experience at Edge Hill. The wide range of support for students is subjective and specific to each student’s needs.
After completing my degree, I am looking forward to a career in Global Aid and Development. At Edge Hill University, I have been given the opportunities to take the steps forward to achieve this career.
