The course was an amazing experience, but I felt that it didnt prepare us enough for a real career. Because the course is multi-disciplinary, it’s much harder to find a suitable role and I believe they could improve this by providing better sources / support for job applications

Good experience but difficult to find a job, career wise it is great if you want to become a police officer but in terms of being a criminologist the jobs are limited.

It is a great step up course. Opens the door to many other potential courses like forensic criminology, psychology or law degree.
