Studying Criminology at Durham has been amazing and provided me with an incredible insight into criminological scholarship. The department offers varied modules that not only allow you to explore the varied topics within your subject, but also subsequently tailor your degree to align with your personal academic interests. I received invaluable support throughout my three years at university, which has allowed me to exceed academically way beyond personal expectation.
My time studying Criminology at Durham has been the most incredible experience. When I first arrived, I was unsure about what I wanted to achieve but staff within the department have guided me to interact with modules and academia that have been so critically engaging, they have given me the confidence to make a difference. My views on society and its social issues have completely changed since starting my degree. The support within and across the department is unmatched and the student voice is continuously heard.
Studying in the Department of Sociology at Durham has given me amazing experiences that I will take with me post-graduation. Not only are the staff supportive in your studies, but they are supportive with any extracurricular activities you make undertake. For example, I received support throughout all my public speaking events and campaigns to improve working-class and local student experiences of studying at Durham University. This support has truly made my university experience as a working-class, local student an easier ride.
