Sociology BSc(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Rajni Kaur

Name: Rajni Kaur

The area of study that I've enjoyed learning about on the sociology degree is inter-sectionality and how this affects different individuals in different ways, both positively and negatively.  

The sociology lecturers have helped me to develop by teaching me how to become analytical and think critically about myself, society and also academically. 

I have taken up the voluntary role of being a third year course rep and also volunteering as a mental health support volunteer. I also gained the great opportunity of working in a team with students from other faculties as well as lecturers from Sociology, Music and Drama on the award winning project, Taking Race Live in my second year. 

 

Lavinia Tinelli

Name: Lavinia Tinelli

I've had the chance to explore how sociology intertwines with youth subcultures and fashion, something I have never thought that much about before.  It's incredible how many factors are behind what we wear and the way we express ourselves through clothes, definitely my favourite topic.

My lecturers' passion and dedication to their field and their students is what inspired me the most during my time at university. They provided me with constant support and advice both in class and through personal meetings. They encouraged me to shape my academic interests and my career, as well as helping my personal growth. The effort they put in to supporting their students as individuals, not only as people who study, is probably what I cherish the most.

I've taken part in social sciences career events at university, where I had the chance to personally meet employers and better understand how to shape my life after university. I have also taken up several student ambassador job opportunities offered by Kingston University, which definitely helped me gain valuable social and practical skills that I have implemented throughout my final-year field research study.

 

Yusuf M Sharif

Name: Yusuf M Sharif

I studied criminology and sociology at Kingston and most enjoyed the researching race and ethnicity module, as the assignment was a good preparation for the dissertation. Also, learning about the works of writers such as Kimberley Crenshaw, Bell Hooks, and Patricia Hill Collins has helped me do really well in the 'social intersections: race, class and gender' module this year. 

My lecturers have played an important role in my university experience, from writing my references to guiding me in order to achieve my full potential. I feel very lucky and appreciative to be taught by some really engaged lecturers throughout my three years at Kingston University. 

Whilst studying, I've taken up the role of course representative. This has helped me gain transferable skills, such as analytical, time-management, and communication skills amongst others.
