What I would highlight: What I really love about studying Criminology is the fact that it offers a different perspective and allows to look up people through different lens and to thing about the wise that might be behind them. Crimonology covers different aspects, for examples, you can look at human rights, cybercrimes, or institutions of the criminal justice service. I decided to study Crimonology here at Middlesex because it is in London and makes easier to have access to things such as the criminal courts or prisons. Personally, I benefited from the university links with external organizations by taking the placement here with the prison service. But the university also has links with the Metropolitan Police which canalize students to take placements here or placement more jobs.
