Why did you choose to study at Solent?

I chose to study at Solent because when I came for an open day, I was instantly taken away. The University offers something I didn’t quite get a feeling of when visiting my other options.

What do you enjoy about your course?

Being on the BSc Psychology and Sociology degree has opened up my eyes to how I view the world that we live in. From the small everyday things we do in life, to larger aspirations for the future, I now look at and analyse every scenario and come to terms with it from either a psychological or sociological perspective.

What's the favourite thing you've studied so far?

I would have to say social inequalities. Every week we have covered a very interesting topic, ranging from gender and class to defining social problems. We have also covered topics such as nationality, sexual orientation and universal basic income (which is probably my favourite topic so far).

What do you like about Solent University?

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, I have yet to experience much of the University on campus. However, what I can say is that even with the online learning via Solent Online Learning (SOL), my lecturers have been amazing. They have made me feel comfortable enough to approach them if I have any issues and have really gone the extra mile to try engaging and educating us.

What are your career aspirations for after university?

I have considered taking the extra step and possibly deciding to do a master’s in either psychology or sociology. I am really enjoying my course and would like to further my knowledge. Due to the current climate the world is in, mental health is becoming even more of a serious issue, and I would like my future career to have mental health as its core focus.
