    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    LIVERPOOL JOHN MOORED UNI - POLICING AND FORENSICS

    Loved the city of Liverpool and his course was only offered in a few places, with LJMU's offering being the most attractive due to all the lecturers being retired, senior police staff. LJMU also offered many incentives over other universities such as free gym memberships.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It can sometimes be a bit too trivial and useless in the respect that I don't think some content will develop my thinking or skills, and it sometimes has no relevance to what the course is about. But often it's exciting, with topics like murder and rape, why people commit these crimes, etc. The forensics module is lots of fun as well as you get to dress up a lot and become part of a role-play.

    BSC FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGY FROM LJMU

    They had a good range of modules and the support for disabilities were fantastic because they are there for you every step of the way. The lecturers are easy to talk to and the way they teach their subjects are interesting.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The range of subjects is good, especially with the way the lecturers teach the subject. It is a hard subject but because the subject modules are interesting, it is simply a way of persevering. The support offered is excellent.
