Hello!
One of my closest friends did Psychology and Criminology in her first year so hopefully I'll be able to answer any questions for you.
Lancaster is currently 1st of Criminology and 6th for Psychology in the Guardian league tables. This reflects the high teaching standards but also the high student satisfaction rate on these courses. Law (including criminology) is also 1st for job prospects after 6 months. I'd recommend having a look at the modules over the three years to see if they match your interest. We also have open days on the 7th and 14th of September. Lancaster is located in the north-west, somewhere in between the Lake District and Manchester. The careers service at Lancaster will help you to make connections in industries you're interested in but also to perfect your CV and job application skills.
Let me know if you have any questions about Lancaster,

Good luck with your application,

Hi there!

Think I may have already posted this in a different threat that you asked the same question in but thought I'd leave it here in case I'm wrong or you haven't seen it

I'm in my final year at Kent at the moment, although I don't study criminology or psychology unfortunately. There is this online service thing at Kent though called Unibuddy, where prospective students like yourself, can ask current students studying the same subject, what it's like to do their course. You can ask them anything from how their timetable is, to coursework, exams, and what they're planning to do after. I'll leave the link here in case you're interested https://www.kent.ac.uk/unibuddy/


In terms of student life and facilities and all that, I personally think Kent is really good! I love the campus lifestyle and having everything you need in one place. There's a nightclub, cinema, theater, gym and loads of places to eat and drink on campus. It is also set in hundreds of acres of parkland and has some pretty amazing views over the Kent countryside and Canterbury cathedral too. I chose Kent because to me, it felt really homely and was a place I could see myself happily living. I'd definitely recommend going to some open days if you can because that can really help you decide if that university is the place you can see yourself at Also check out the modules at each of the universities you're looking at and decide which ones appeal to you the most as this can have a big impact on your academic experience at uni!


I hope that this helps! Let me know if you have any questions about Kent at all, I'm more than happy to help where I can.
