I have a genuine admiration and respect for all of my tutors and marvel at their extensive subject knowledge.

“Edge Hill University was always my first choice and being able to studying Criminology and Sociology meant I was able to explore two of my favourite interests, learn and develop in different ways and broaden my future career prospects.

The two subjects complement each other very well and there are numerous crossovers in the modules. It helps a great deal to be able to use the same knowledge and terminology in both, which further enhances your understanding and develops your thinking further.

Since being on the course I’ve gained much more passion for what I do and what I am interested in, which has inspired me to explore and consider issues that I hadn’t thought about before. Although it has also been very challenging, there’s no doubt that having a real passion for what you are studying keeps you motivated and I have really enjoyed my time here.

Part of that enjoyment has been down to the support and encouragement we all receive from the fantastic teaching staff, which is absolutely priceless. I have a genuine admiration and respect for all of my tutors and marvel at their extensive subject knowledge, which I think is very important when being taught at this level.

As well as this, the tutors are also very approachable and always willing to give their time to help students do well. I have found that when you have tutors who have such an enthusiasm for what they teach, as they do at Edge Hill, it certainly rubs off on you.”
