More about Kate
“I already knew a lot about NTU before starting my Masters as I completed my undergraduate degree in Law with Psychology at NTU, so I knew what a great university it is. When I realised I wanted to continue my studies, it was the obvious option. The modules on the MA Criminology course looked really interesting, and I wanted to continue studying but also take a step sideways away from legislation and the law. The scholarship opportunities were a big factor for me in applying to NTU, as I would have been unable to study had I not received a scholarship.
“I have particularly enjoyed the Offender Management and Crime module and the Community and Neighbourhood module as it always sparks discussion, and has assisted in the development of skills such as report writing, which are relevant to future career prospects. My modules take place over two days which is extremely useful, as it allows time for independent study and other activities which I am involved in, such as sport and my part time job.
“The facilities and services available to students are all great, really accessible and helpful. The employability team are always sending round emails offering help in different areas and the NOW portal allows me to access all course content.
“After completing the course I plan to move back home and get a job in the legal sector, possibly as a paralegal and complete the LPC part time in order to become a solicitor.”
