The Youth Justice course has a large number of job prospects, such as jobs in probation to jobs in the youth offending team. I would certainly recommend this course as it is guaranteed that you will be taught by specialists.
More about Chloe
"Originally I wanted to study criminology, however the Youth Justice course suited me better as I perform better through coursework than exams, and this course is mostly assessed through coursework. Furthermore, I have been impressed as all of the staff have had experience in some way or another with youth justice – for example, some are members of youth offending teams. This enhanced my experience as it was interesting to hear real life scenarios from lecturers, and this therefore gave me a real insight to how it would be to work within the youth justice sector. Also, as it is quite a small course, the support you receive can be tailored to you, and it is also easier to speak up in lectures – which has increased my confidence."
"There have been a number of online events in relation to careers in criminal justice. Through one of these online events I found out about a post graduate scheme that I would like to do after graduating, as I would like to hopefully join the police."
"Life at NTU has been nothing but amazing. I have been at NTU for four years as I previously studied a different course. Nottingham is a vibrant city with many things to do, and I would love to stay here once I graduate. Most of my lectures are held in Newton and Chaucer, which are conveniently based in the city centre. There are a number of societies to join which I have done so. Furthermore, there are a number of sports to do, from football to equestrian! For my final year I joined equestrian and I really enjoy it."
"The support I have received whilst studying for my degree has been incredible. My personal tutor has always been available to talk to, and the staff respond to emails extremely quickly, and are always willing to help despite however many questions I ask. I feel that during covid-19 many things have had to change, by no fault of the university themselves. The online teaching on Microsoft Teams was the nearest alternative to face to face teaching, and although I did prefer face to face teaching I do think the University responded well to the challenge, and the lecturers certainly worked hard to make sure we were not disadvantaged at all."
"The Youth Justice course has a large number of job prospects, such as jobs in probation to jobs in the youth offending team. I would certainly recommend this course as it is guaranteed that you will be taught by specialists whom each have a lot of experience in their subject area. You are not limited to as what you can do, as the course teaches you such a variety of things that you can also go into job sectors such as the police and prison service."
