    Hi I'm Hayley- Ive applied for criminology at university of leeds,nott trent, lincoln,uni of southampton and uni of manchester.
    I have received all 5 conditional offers yay!
    as long as i do well in my jan exams then i hope to have leeds as my firm and nott trent as my insurance.
    I would love to work in the police force somewhere
    although my mum has told me her friend has a criminology degree and u dont need that to work for the police but im so excited to start learning yaya!x
    That's excellent, well done! Your mum's friend is right, don't need a degree at all to work in the police, but it certainly would help to have some Criminology knowledge before applying. If anything, the degree shows that you have dedication to your subject and policing career. What the police want is life skills - my dad served in the army before joining the service as an officer and he was never once asked to prove any qualifications!

    ive got 3 offers for criminology so far : hull bangor and plymouth. which would be the best choice?
    I know that Hull can give you a grade dependent academic scholarship for Criminology! Scholarships in Criminology are very hard to come by! Ensure you attend all the applicant days possible and see where you feel most comfortable.

    I got an offer from Sheffield for Social Policy & Criminology and I have my heart set on getting in there but I honestly have no clue what to do with my degree. I just know Criminology is something I can do well at and to me, includes a variety of transferable skills so it seemed like a smart choice to make considering I don't know where to take my life. I was thinking maybe Criminal Profiling but is this an actual job? Or is this something we just see on Criminal Minds.. I also would perhaps like to work at the Home Office but i'm concerned that my degree in Criminology (haha i'm already talking like I have one) would be seen as insignificant at a place like the Home Office? Any advice is welcomed!

    The universities have only had about one working week since receiving your application. My longest wait for a reply was just over a month and I sent it during working times (i.e. not just before a holiday like you did!). Calm down

    Out of the 5 universities I have applied to, I am only waiting on a decision off one of them now! Three conditionals off Aberystwyth, Bangor and UCLan and one rejection off Durham. I only added Durham because I was stuck for a fifth choice, if I'm honest, so I'm not too upset. Now I am just waiting on a reply from Lancaster, but it won't really make much difference to what I am looking to do. I aim to choose Aberystwyth and UCLan as my firm and insurance (although, I have no idea which way around yet!).

    Where are you studying? I'm a first year currently doing Criminology and Criminal Justice and I really like the course. Didn't you research it beforehand?

    Ah right, yeah I do understand what you mean. I perhaps aimed a little low with my uni choice but i'm still very happy with the course.

    I haven't received any offers yet. I sent my application just 3 days ago. I have been a little late with it but hopefully this won't bring me any drawbacks.

    Don't worry about it
    As long as you sent it before the deadline it should be fine
