Our students

I have honestly loved every part of studying at Staffs and I would do my degree again in a heartbeat! If I had to pick best bits, I’d say the lecturers are all brilliant! Always there to help no matter how busy they are! The facilities at Staffs are excellent and the Psychology technical staff are so friendly and helpful, especially when it comes to doing your final year project!

Graduate, BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology

There’s such a wide amount of stuff that’s covered on the course. We don’t just talk about psychology – we talk about crime related things and juvenile delinquency and murder – it’s such a wide variety of topics that we discuss that it never gets boring.

BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology

For me, the best part of the course has been getting to choose my optional modules. There were a variety of modules available for us to choose from and it helped me tailor my experience on the course to be specific to the topics that I was interested in, which then allowed me to gain a wider knowledge on some of my biggest interests.
