Barn ein Myfyrwyr

The good thing about Psychology and Criminology is that both subjects complement one another; for example, psychology modules broaden your knowledge meaning you can go more in-depth when studying criminology modules, which in my opinion gives you an advantage over straight criminology students. Psychology modules focus more on theories and explanations, while criminology modules help you to use those theories and explanations to focus on the reasons for crime, almost like putting the theories and explanations into practice. Again I believe this gives you an advantage over straight psychology by using what you've learned in another context. Joshua Lyons

Criminology is amazing. All the lecturers are extremely helpful and enthusiastic, which makes the course a lot more interesting for me to want to succeed at it. Criminology sets out guidelines that are straightforward and easy to follow. The criminology lectures are fun and keep you entertained so you are never bored in them and you are constantly wide awake and ready to learn what the lecturer has to offer. Also in Criminology the lecturers seem more keen to get you involved with the university. Leah Rossiter

I'm taking the course for a joint honours degree in Psychology and Criminology. It's a great way to learn both subjects and to receive the attention and possibilities from both departments. It's great that we can always ask our lecturers/tutors about anything and they always help us find the answer or the person who can give it. Our teachers are our friends - students can feel that from the attitudes in the classroom and even out of it! One of the best things is that we are able to access and use articles, books and files on our computers thanks to Primo Central. It is really easy and helpful, and I miss it every time I'm away from the campus. Long live Aberystwyth University! Karina Djokova
