What our students say

Emily Larkin

I've now started my new job working for Essex Police. It's going well, and is a great opportunity. It's likely I wouldn't have got the job had I not done the work placement I did at the beginning of the course. So a big thanks to all the lecturers on the course. In addition to that, I am now practicing lots of skills that I developed throughout uni, and applying knowledge I didn't think I'd necessarily use. I initially wasn't going to go to uni, but I went to the open day, and the work based learning module was what drew me in, and it's now proved essential in obtaining a good job straight out of uni.
