I am in my second year of Forensic Psychology at Leeds Trinity University. I do multiple modules, but my favourites are theories of forensic psychology & psychology of social issues as I find these the most interesting and enjoyable.

"Some skills that I developed during my time at college are my ability to reference, as well as take condensed notes, my timekeeping and ability to handle multiple deadlines is also due to studying both A-level psychology and BTEC forensic science. The college helped me prepare for university, as I had multiple deadlines and exams at once, like university now.

College is the closest experience to university in my opinion. You have so much more freedom than going to a sixth form, but you know that the support from the tutors is always there when you need it.

Kendal College is one of the best times of my life. I made friends I'm still in contact with now even though we all go to different universities. They made me realise my academic potential and even awarded me with the Mayor Award after my two years of studying both A-level psychology and Level 3 BTEC Forensic Science. Without the support and belief from my tutors, I do not think I would have the confidence in myself like I do now.

After completing my BSc degree, I plan on studying my masters in Leeds whilst finding an apprenticeship in the psychological field. I also plan on completing my doctorate and progressing into the role of a chartered forensic psychologist."
