After 11 months and 34 posts (including this one), the time has come for me to say goodbye.
The past couple of months have felt a little weird. I submitted my dissertation on the 15th May. That was the point where many students felt that they had come to the end of their time at Leicester. But I never felt like that. For one thing, there was the wait to get provisional grades for my final assignments, then the wait to get the marks confirmed by the Exam Board, and then there was graduation to ‘look forward’ to. And I’ve also had more blog posts to right. As a result, I had never really felt like I was leaving the University of Leicester.
I’m excited about my future. I’m looking forward to starting a Masters degree in September before either studying for a PhD or securing a top graduate role, preferably involving research. Nevertheless, I cannot deny feeling a certain amount of sadness as I type these words. I’ve had a fantastic time at the University of Leicester. The lecturers have been extremely supportive. The degree has been fantastically organised. And best of all, the vast majority of the modules have been compelling to study.
I would highly recommend that anybody seriously interested in studying Criminology at university considers to the University of Leicester. Here is a link to the degree I have completed (albeit that it is now a BSc rather than the BA I graduated with):
I’ve also really enjoyed blogging during the past year. I hope that some of my posts have been interesting and/or useful. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading my blog and wish you good luck for the years ahead. A new Criminology blogger will start posting next month. In the meantime, I hope you all have a fantastic summer.
