I chose this course because it is specifically related to crime and criminal investigation. I have found it really interesting so far it is giving us a wide perspective on criminology and a good understanding of what I can expect from a career in this field. The lecturers have been friendly, helpful and approachable. In the first year, we visited Marylebone Road Magistrates Court to observe how hearings are presented and what goes on that was a really interesting assignment. I also did some mentoring at HM Prison Holloway (the women's prison), where I was finding ways to help women integrate back into society." -Mafalda Guerra
