Since starting this course, I have found out things about myself, during the reflective areas of the modules, which I was not aware of previously.
I picked the BA (Hons) Criminology and Criminal Justice as I am interested in the criminal justice system, having been involved with it, and the many changes which have evolved over many years. I like to try and understand why people become criminals and commit crimes.
Before taking on this course I found that I was coming in from work and watching television all evening. So, I decided to study with University of Essex Online and earn a qualification where I could work to my own pace. I made enquiries at various universities and while most of them just sent me booklets, University of Essex Online staff called up and spoke to me. They were very helpful and talked me through what was expected. They also answered all my questions honestly and factually.
Since starting this course, I have found out things about myself, during the reflective areas of the modules, which I was not aware of previously. All the tutors have been approachable and willing to assist with any problems, as well as my student advisor who has always been at the end of an email and has never failed to help me when asked.
If anyone was thinking of undertaking this course, I would strongly advise them to start.
