Previous Student Experience

Dana Brown - Criminal Justice (Bachelor of Social Science)

The United Kingdom placement was more so an education based learning environment. Lectures from infield professionals provided opportunities and perspectives to explore the United Kingdom’s Criminal Justice System. Ample experiences were provided in regards to cultural learning. As a group, we experienced the lively hood of downtown, London, and the serenity of the Cotswold’s. Overall, I would recommend an international placement to anyone who inquired. I believe that learning internationally opens up a whole new world of networks and learning goa
