    That's fantastic news @streetangel61! Thanks for updating us :) It sounds like you've been able to make a lot of progress, and try lots of new things. 

    That'd certainly be an interesting job. What made you want to enter into that sort of career?

    I have also been interested in criminology and how they catch them with even the smallest bit of evidence. I thought it would be nice to work with young people let them see that no matter what happens to you in life you control it. if it saves one youth from committing and more crime it will be a bonus. and working with the police is a bonus, I wanted to be a policewoman when I left school circumstances did not arise for that to happen so l though criminologist is the next best thing. the sorry reply was long but just wanted to explain a little bit more.

    It's hard going, trying to remember things, and learning to write academically is hard not like being at school, and the time limits you have to get the 3000-word assignment handed in., I'm in the second year, one more year then criminology course for a year, was thinking about learning history after, I enjoy studying keeps my brain busy  :)

    I did a BA in Politics and Social Policy and I definitely found adjusting to writing academically took some time @streetangel61. Remember that you should be able to get in touch with your tutors if you're confused about anything, or need some further guidance. 

    Definitely! Learning is a great way to keep the brain ticking over. I'm hoping to do some more free online courses in 2021.
