Hiya! Can anyone studying this course give me a little bit of insight into what it's like? I've been given the chance for an unconditional offer and I'm unsure of whether to accept it or not.

Hi!

I'm currently studying for my masters in Intelligence and International Criminal Justice so I can't comment about specifics about your course, but I can talk about the uni in general.
I would contact your faculty and ask to speak to a student rep on your course.

At Portsmouth, the academic support team are really helpful. There is a librarian and support staff for each subject and they too will help you with anything regarding your course and are really good if you are struggling with researching material. Lecturers are enthusiastic about what they teach to help you develop. Most are also currently doing research related to their topic area, which is really useful.

The student wellbeing service is helpful and offers a wide range of guidance. Alongside this is the union which offer lots of guidance and experiences while at university.

There are loads of societies to choose from and they accept people from beginners too. The societies are all really friendly. it would be worth checking out their social media to have a see what they offer. Every Wednesday afternoon is when societies are given time to train, so your timetable does not interfere. Then in the evening is when socials go out for Purple Wednesday, where everyone dresses up etc. Each society will choose a different theme that they will dress as e.g. zoo animals, cops and robbers, Hawaiian, aliens, dynamic duos etc.

Most clubs and bars are a 5-minute walk from university halls, so there is no worry in your first year about getting there and back. The train station, supermarkets, shops and Gunwharf Queys are all within a 10-minute walk from the halls. There are also lots of independent shops and bars etc along Albert Road in Southsea where a lot of students live after they have been in halls. The University bus runs every 20 minutes and is close to most student houses. A lot of shops, bars and clubs offer a student discount and I would say drinks and stuff are pretty cheap, especially on student night where drinks can be £1.

I would suggest looking at the university and union social media to get a feel for the university, as visiting during COVID isn't possible.
Also, I would contact your faculty and ask to speak to a student rep on your course. They will be able to get someone in contact with you if you have any specific questions about the course. [email protected]

So far I have enjoyed my university experience at Portsmouth.
If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

I did it a few years ago. Not the most rigorous academically but it was quite interesting ( lots of modules like psychology and sociology to chose from). Most of us did alright with jobs afterwards ; teaching, social work or children’s services for county councils. A nice crowd but obviously not many blokes on the course (although the ones that were on it were a riot).
