Course: BSc Sociology with Criminology
Level: Alumni 2012
Other information: I came to Kingston after working as a Youth Support Worker. I am a Kingston University student ambassador.
I chose Kingston because... I wanted to be close to London and I wanted to go to a smaller campus university. Kingston seemed perfectly located with a nice campus.
I have got to where I am now.... I got quite ill and had to leave my last degree. I then spent some time recovering and working as a youth support worker in Oxford which made me see the world in a different way. I became very interested in inequality which led me to study Sociology and Criminology. Seeing how some people struggle for reasons that are out of their control motivates me to work hard.
My plans for the future are... I want to go on to do a MSc in Public Policy and work for an international non-governmental organisation with a focus on international third world development.

1. Go for it - be sociable in your first week, go out, talk to people and have fun. Everyone is in the same boat so try not to be nervous. Go for things you would never have tried before because you will find you aren't the only one!
2. Go to your lectures in first year. Making an effort in first year makes your second and third year easier. Trust me.
